For much of America, there was never any doubt that Hillary Clinton was in the pocket of someone big, no matter was nomenclature you’d like to use to refer to them.
The powers that be. The deep state. The illuminati.
Whatever moniker you choose, there has been a perverse and permeating feeling in America that there is a puppet master hovering above us all, pulling the strings on his miscreant marionettes in order to squeeze every last dollar out of We The People. This, in turn, sends our wallet stuffing back to the lobbyists, who then wine and dine the next precocious politician on the list.
And, when it comes to corrupted politicians, no one can compare to the Queen of Collusion herself.
But what if we were to discover that Hillary was just a pawn herself, being played by one or more of these mythical miscreants from high above?
According to reports from eyewitnesses on election night, that may very well be the case.
“No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.”
That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling.
Chozick goes on to describe a peculiar bit of wording chosen by the former Secretary of State after her devastating loss, that seems to indicate something was amiss.
On the night of the election, Chozick describes a dejected Clinton when she was told by campaign staffers that it was over.
“Of all the Brooklyn aides, Jen Palmieri had the most pleasant bedside manner,” Chozick writes. “That made her the designated deliverer of bad news to Hillary. But not this time. She told Robby there was no way she was going to tell Hillary she couldn’t win. That’s when Robby, drained and deflated, watching the results with his team in a room down the hall from Hillary’s suite, labored into the hallway of the Peninsula to break the news. Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’”
Amazingly, if there were some grand conspiracy against Hillary, she failed to mention it in her lengthy retelling of the 2016 election entitled What Happened – a wholly hilarious name for a book about losing to Donald Trump.
