Hillary Clinton has made a lot of speeches over the years. But her recent talk at a diversity conference in San Francisco might just take the cake.

The speaking engagement was Clinton’s first since the election, and more importantly, the first time she opening discussed the current political climate.

According to CNN, she told the crowd,

“Obviously the outcome of the election wasn’t the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job.”

HRC then proceeded to take on everything that’s gone on in White House since January, from health care to Sean Spicer. Below are the best bits.

Health Care

The 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee called the GOP health care bill “disastrous.” She added, “Really? Take away maternity care? Who do these people talk to?”

Diversity in the Workplace

“Advancing the rights and opportunities of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the 21st century.”

She added that women’s representation in the White House was the lowest it’s been in a generation.

On the Private Sector

Clinton called out businesses, saying that “You’re the people who figured out how to fit computers in the palms of our hands. You have the power.”

Her New Mantra

Despite everything that’s happened, she insists, “”Where some see a dark vision of carnage, I see a light shining on creativity and opportunity.”

This brings us to her new motto: “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”

And if you think HRC is just going to crawl in a hole because she lost the election, think again.

“I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.”
