Hillary Clinton is back, not with another campaign, but instead, she is on tour promoting her new book, titled “What Happened.” The self-written memoir was published on September 12th, 2017, and has created a lot of buzz and varying opinions. Hillary claims the book is about campaigning, debating, running, and losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
Tuesday morning Hillary took to Instagram posting images of herself signing books. Former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos also was posting on Instagram to give his sarcastic rating of the book saying, “It’s even better than I imagined.” Many other conservatives have laughed the book off as a failure and denial manifesto. The book also has a lower rating among Google User readers than Donald Trump’s book, “Crippled America, How To Make America Great Again,” so much that Amazon even took down over 900 reviews. Donald Trump also has an itch for mocking the book and retweeted an image showing “What Happened” along side an imaginary book titled “I Happened.”
Hillary is heavily promoting her book and like-minded media outlets are more than happy to give her air time. On Wednesday she was interviewed by Anderson Cooper on CNN. She talked about the current administration, the 2016 presidential campaign, and Russia. She also spoke at length about preparing for the debates and Trump’s aggressive behavior. She detailed her thought process about Trump’s awkward looming behind her during one instance and how it took every urge in her body not to say to him “you’re not going to intimidate me, back off you creep.”
The interview continued as Hillary talked about how the book details some of her mistakes in the election such as not campaigning enough in swing states. She also previewed how the book deals with her feelings about a divisive Bernie Sanders and the fact that his supporters didn’t come out in large numbers to support her.
The book is currently on sale, and Hillary Clinton remains on tour. Many Democrats have dreaded its release, but here it is. Although “What Happened” was published extremely recently it has already received opposition from the Trump administration. The White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, used her daily press briefing to bash the insults thrown at the White House by the book. This isn’t the first criticism of the book, and it definitely won’t be the last.
