Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said watching Hillary Clinton explain her election loss to President Trump was "like watching a car wreck in slow motion."

Clinton spoke with CNN's Christiane Amanpour today and initially said she took "full responsibility" for the loss.

But, later in the discussion, Clinton said FBI Director Jim Comey's October letter and "Russian WikiLeaks" were aggravating factors in her loss.

"If the election was on October 27th, I'd be your president," Clinton said.

"It's like watching a car wreck in slow motion," he said, adding that he is reading the Clinton campaign expose "Shattered."

"She can't come to grips with reality," he said. "None of her staff can tell her the truth."

Gingrich said the "number one" problem in the Clinton campaign was Clinton herself.

"Number two was Donald J. Trump," he said, calling the president a better candidate than Democrats expected.

Later, Gingrich criticized former Rep. Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.), an MSNBC host who said "exhaustion" was affecting Trump's actions in office.

"Somebody needs to get in there... you've got to stop talking," Scarborough said.

Gingrich called Scarborough "unhinged" and said Trump's presidency was affecting his "mental clarity."
