Hillary Clinton is set to release her book “What Happened,” on September 12th. In her book, she is expected to offer a deeply personal account of her regrets in the 2016 presidential elections – along with a litany of excuses why she lost to President Donald Trump.
While many are seeing this book as a way for Clinton to deflect blame over her humiliating 2016 defeat, it is much more than that.
Commentators note that Hillary’s book will most likely be used a vehicle for a new Democratic narrative, and be used to crush President Trump. In fact, it would be unsurprising if the attacks laid out in the book had not been intensely focus tested for effectiveness, and if the book comes out alongside coordinated and matched Democratic Party initiatives to destroy President Trump.
Speaking on the imminent release, Hillary reminded perspective readers, “I don’t have all the answers and this isn’t a comprehensive account of the 2016 race. However, “In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list.”
“I want to pull back the curtain on an experience that was exhilarating, joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling. Writing this wasn’t easy. Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me and I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down. But I did. I couldn’t get the job done. And I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life,’ she sorrowfully stated.
Already, Clinton has attempted to revive the failed “sexist” narrative from the campaign, calling Trump a “creep” and stating that he made her “skin crawl,” during the Presidential debates. Recalling the second presidential debate, Clinton admitted that she felt “incredibly uncomfortable” near Trump.
“It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, well, what would you do?” Clinton wrote in an excerpt from the book that was teased on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
“Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘back up you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me so back up.”
In her book Clinton promises to offer more so-called “insights” into how the Russians and James Comey are to blame for all her troubles. One thing you should not expect to hear from this book is a frank discussion of Hillary’s deleted email.
However, not even Democrats are buying Clinton’s bid to remain relevant. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer – the top Democrat in the nation – spoke about Hillary’s fascination with rehashing her humiliating defeat, saying, “When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself.” And added, “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
