Hillary Clinton is an angry woman, but I am angrier than her because she used her new book to insult me personally. In recent days revelations from her new book,
“I Lost Because Everyone Screwed Me” er, I mean “What Happened” have been sent to the press and it seems as if she has blamed everyone almost everyone for her presidential loss.
We knew she was going to blame Former FBI Director James “The Leaker”, Comey and the supposed Russian collusion (which she helped to invent by paying a former British spy to come up with a Russia story, compiling it in what is now called “The Trump Dossier”). But based on the press reports the former secretary of state has gone mad with anger, blaming almost everyone, here are just a few:
- Bernie Sanders: Hillary says that Bernie “caused lasting damage,” to her campaign made it harder to “unify progressives” and paved the way for Donald Trump’s “Crooked Hillary” refrain during the general election.
Sorry Hillary, but if you want to blame anyone for people thinking you are crooked, I would blame whoever came up with the cockamamie You-Tube-Started-Benghazi lie, and Peter Schweizer whose book Clinton cash exposed that you used the state department to make Bubba and you rich. I would also blame whoever convinced you to put an insecure mail server in your basement.
Bernie for his part came up with a good (but inaccurate) response to Ms. Clinton’s charges. Speaking to Stephen Colbert on the CBS “Late Show” Thursday he said, “Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country and she lost and she was upset about it and I understand that ”
Sorry, Bernie, that’s not accurate, Trump couldn’t be the most unpopular candidate in history, he beat Hillary Clinton, therefore she must be the most unpopular candidate in history.
- Barack Obama: In her book, Clinton says that Obama urged her to go easy on Sanders, she writes, which made it feel “like I was in a straitjacket.”
“Throughout the primaries, every time I wanted to hit back against Bernie’s attacks, I was told to restrain myself. Noting that his plans didn’t add up, that they would inevitably mean raising taxes on middle-class families, or that they were little more than a pipe dream – all of this could be used to reinforce his argument that I wasn’t a true progressive. My team kept reminding me that we didn’t want to alienate Bernie’s supporters. President Obama urged me to grit my teeth and lay off Bernie as much as I could. I felt like I was in a straitjacket.”
Actually Hillary….the straitjacket comment alerted me to the fact that you should feel like you are in a straitjacket today….because you are acting like you need a straitjacket. She also blames Obama for not speaking out more forcefully about the supposed Russian interference.
“I do wonder sometimes about what would have happened if President Obama had made a televised address to the nation in the fall of 2016 warning that our democracy was under attack. Maybe more Americans would have woken up to the threat in time. We’ll never know.’”
