Hillary Clinton may well be the most prolific political writer with absolutely nothing to say. Her “Tough Choices” memoir did poorly even as Hillary was conducting his book tour for it: It offers no evidence of any tough choices and is a vapid and boring exercise in ghostwritten self-congratulation.
So as Hillary launches her latest auto-hagiography titled “What Happened” to rationalize her humiliating defeat at the hands of Donald Trump, Would-be reviewers are getting a head start in warning readers of what to expect from this auto-hagiography by the least self-aware presidential loser in American history. Writes Damon Linker from theweek.com:
That title really is unfortunate. Because the thing is that “what happened” is patently obvious to everyone who isn’t blinded by partisanship or personal fealty to the Clinton family: She lost — to the most flagrant demagogue-charlatan in American history, a man whose lack of fitness for the job was so obvious and total that she should have won in a landslide.
There is not a chance in the world that Clinton’s memoir will frankly examine and reflect on the true causes of her catastrophic defeat.… Oopsie! Coulda happened to anyone!
Actually, it could have only happened to Hillary Clinton. Not that you’re likely to find in her memoir any kind of honest reckoning with what is now a lengthy track record of piss-poor decisions — or with the crucial contribution of those bad decisions to her defeat.
But that is nonetheless exactly what happened.
And Stephen L. Miller from Fox News:
“What Happened” is Hillary’s hubris, accompanied by a bubbling distrust among the public over the enshrined Hollywood-media complex. She underestimated an opponent she herself wanted to face off against and was a terrible candidate. That cost her a place in history.
You’re not going to get the real story of ‘What Happened’ from Hillary Clinton, because Hillary Clinton is what happened. You’re going to hear “Russia, Russia, Russia.” You can save the $25 and hear the same thing every day on CNN for free.
All this before the book is even released! It’s coming soon to a remainder bin near you.
