Ben Rhodes: I Was ‘Shellshocked’ After Trump Won (The Washington Free Beacon)
Former top Barack Obama aide Ben Rhodes said Monday that he woke up "shellshocked" after Donald Trump's election victory over Hillary Clinton.
Rhodes, whose White House memoir The World As It Is comes out Tuesday, was filmed by HBO's "The Final Year" documentary crew struggling to find words to convey his shock the night of Trump's win. Throughout the film, Rhodes confidently predicted Clinton couldn't lose.
"I woke up the morning after election night kind of shellshocked, and that's when it hit me," Rhodes said on "CBS This Morning."
