Much like the rest of the world, Hillary Clinton was simply stunned at the news of Kobe Bryant sudden and tragic passing that also claimed the life of his young daughter and seven other people aboard his personal helicopter.
TMZ Sports caught up with the former Secretary of State at Sundance in Park City, UT on Sunday and actually broke the news to her.
“Hillary came back around later and touched on the passing of the NBA legend, saying she couldn’t believe it until she checked her phone … and felt anguished that it was real.
She called Kobe’s death an “incredible loss … in every way,” echoing the sentiments of millions still reeling from the sad news.”
Besides Kobe’s 13-year-old daughter, the other victims were identified as John Altobelli (56), Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester (13), Christina Mauser and the pilot, Ara Zobayan.
