Hillary Clinton’s tentacles reach far into the dark corners of the public sphere of perception, according to new reports regarding her new book’s popularity.
The somber and accusatory tome, hilariously titled What Happened, is meant to be a somber tale of Clinton’s harrowing and embarrassing defeat at the hand of Donald Trump during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Her absurd premise should have been the first indication that the book was destined to fail. Clinton had nothing happen to her during the election that doomed her bid for the White House. The reality is, Clinton’s long history of cowardly collusion and unkempt corruption was enough to make Americans stand up to her brooding and loathsome politics. We The People rejected the idea of Clintonian political chicanery and thankfully elected Donald Trump; a man beholden to no Washington special interests, who would go on to scare the daylights out of the Beltway establishment in an extraordinary way.
Clinton’s book, however, lays out a number of people that she blames for her loss, including more popular members of her own democratic party – an organization that is currently imploding at an unprecedented pace.
Now, as the word gets out that What Happened is a tawdry piece of political perversion and finger pointing, the masses are responding online with their own takes on the fictitious tale. For some reason, however, their words of warning are being removed by online retailer Amazon in an apparent attempt to whitewash the horrific critical reception.
“Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton’s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released.
“Few of the one-star reviews remain on the website, but reports and screengrabs show that reviewers used the space to criticise the former First Lady and spread conspiracy theories about her and Bill Clinton.
“One one-star review, which remains on the website at the time of writing, reads: ‘Read all the promotional excerpts, which combined come close to book length – pretty good novel. It is fiction, isn’t it? Surely, someone is playing a joke.’
“Amazon is rarely moved to delete reviews so publicly, although in November negative comments under a book by anti-Trump broadcaster Megyn Kelly appeared to be removed by the retailer.”
Censorship of these reviews is yet another piece of the liberal media puzzle, and is likely a ploy by Amazon to demonstrate their dedication to the democratic cause before their merger with Whole Foods becomes fodder for Washington regulators.
Clinton, meanwhile, is continuing to play the role of the oblivious democratic deity that she believes to be, crisscrossing the nation on a “book tour” that could likely be considered the first wave of her ill-advised 2020 campaign.
