Hillary Clinton's new political thriller "State of Terror" features a character clearly inspired by a certain twice-impeached one-term president.

The 2016 Democratic nominee lost her presidential bid to former reality TV star Donald Trump, who closely resembles the "reckless" ex-president from Palm Beach, Florida, she describes in her debut novel she collaborated on with Canadian mystery writer Louise Penny, reported HuffPost.

"Well, a lot of people live in Palm Beach," Clinton told "Late Night" host Seth Meyers, who commented on the similarities.

"Was he inspired by anyone?" Meyers asked.

"He is fictional, Seth, he is fictional," Clinton deadpanned. "However, having lived through the prior four years, it wasn't too hard to imagine."

"[The character is] someone who gets the country into a lot of trouble," Clinton added. "Some of it of his own making and some of it because he doesn't understand how other bad actors are actually using him, so it wasn't too difficult for Louise and I to think about this fictional former president."
