On Saturday, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Clinton took part in a panel discussion with Kathryn Bigelow and Imraan Ismail. The group discussed Bigelow’s film “The Protectors: Walk in the Rangers’ Shoes,” which focuses on the fight save elephants in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Clinton spoke about the world-wide effort to eliminate the demand for ivory, but she said more work needs to be done. “It became clear to everyone that this was not just a terrible crisis when it came to the elephant population, it was a trade, a trafficking that was funding a lot of bad folks, a lot of bad actors. It was being used to take ivory and sell it in order to buy more weapons, and support the kind of terroristic activity that these and other groups were engaged in,” she said. A video from the event will be added if/when available.

On Thursday morning, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on “Live! with Kelly and Michael” where she was interviewed by hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. The three of them spoke about the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and ISIS threatening New York City. Clinton was asked if their threats should be taken seriously, and she said, “I think you always have to take them seriously. One thing that you just have to accept is that when they make threats, they may be some distance from being able to deliver on those threats themselves, but they’re hoping that some discontented person or group right here in our country will hear that threat.”
Clinton was also asked about her thoughts on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, how she was a part of husband and former president Bill Clinton’s administration, and what Clinton’s Thanksgiving plans were. Clips from today’s episode are below.
In the afternoon, Clinton attended a private fundraiser in New York City. Details are not available as the press does not attend private fundraisers.
Clinton also attended the DOC NYC Festival where she introduced the closing film, “MAKERS: Once and For All.” The documentary was produced by AOL and directed by Michael Epstein and Dyllan McGee. The films title is from Clinton’s Bejing speech in 1995, which the films celebrates the 20th anniversary of. Clinton was impressed with the film saying, “I have to say that when Dyllan took on this project, I had no idea what she would find. You will see footage in this film that no one’s ever seen—and I don’t know where she got it.” A trailer for the documentary is below.
On Friday, Clinton will attend a number of events in Kentucky and Tennessee. For all the latest, follow our Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
