In a wide-ranging interview on the Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM that aired Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the radio show host that, “Contrary to what you may hear, I actually like men.”
The quip came during a discussion about how the former first lady met her husband, Bill Clinton, when they were at college together. The 72-year-old Clinton told Stern that she dumped a “very attractive” man — “like a Greek god,” she described him — in order to be with Bill Clinton.

“Contrary to what you may hear, I actually like men,” she joked when Stern encouraged her.
Stern then took things even further, asking the former presidential candidate whether she had ever had an affair with another woman.
“Never, never, never,” Clinton replied. “Never even been tempted, thank you very much.”
Clinton also told Stern that she was disappointed when her opponent in the 2016 Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, refused to immediately endorse her when she won the nomination.
“He hurt me,” she said. “There’s no doubt about it, he hurt me.”
She told the interviewer that she hopes Sanders doesn’t do the same thing to whoever wins the nomination this time around.
“Once is enough,” she said. “We have to join forces.”
