In an interview that aired Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Hillary Clinton said she’s been surprised by Donald Trump’s transformation from “good company” to a “mean-spirited” and “offensive” person.

“I didn’t know him that well, but I did know him. And I think it’s been most surprising to me to see somebody who was affable and was good company and had a reputation of being kind of bigger than life really traffic in a lot of the prejudice and paranoia,” she said. “And some of the comments that he’s made, which have been so divisive and mean-spirited, doesn’t quite fit with what I thought I knew about him.”

“He has really been offensive and in many respects surprising to those of us who did know him,” she continued.
