Hillary Clinton is desperately clinging to any and all opportunities to remain in the public light, no matter how ridiculous or goofy, because, well, she’s addicted to the attention.
As if writing an entire book expressing her feelings about losing the election last year and looking for something or someone to blame other than herself wasn’t bad enough, she’s now writing letters to her teenage self.
Are you ready for this?
Hillary Clinton, former presidential nominee and now guest editor at Teen Vogue, shared a personal column, which was published on Wednesday in the magazine’s Volume IV issue. The column took the form of a letter to her teenage self after her first semester at Wellesley College.
“When you first arrived on campus, you found yourself surrounded by brilliant, accomplished women. They were fluent in other languages. They had lived abroad. They had already read half the books on the syllabus. That was intimidating—so intimidating, in fact, that you called your parents and told them you didn’t belong at Wellesley after all, and you needed to come home.”
“At Wellesley and throughout your life, you’ll find yourself in plenty of rooms where you’re sure everyone is smarter than you are—and sometimes they will be.”
“Remember how Mrs. King in sixth grade used to tell you not to hide your light under a bushel basket? She was right.”
“When your fellow students at Wellesley ask you to give the graduation speech on behalf of the class of 1969, you’ll be humbled and a little terrified. Do it anyway.”
“Oh, and when president-elect Barack Obama says he wants to talk to you about a job opportunity in his cabinet, hear him out.”
Cringeworthy doesn’t begin to even cover how awful this thing is.
It should contain a few nuggets telling her younger self to be less of a corrupt schmuck and not help get child molesters off the hook or put her own ambitions above the safety of Americans who are under her care.
Too bad she continues to pretend like she’s not done anything wrong and won’t take the high road by accepting responsibility for her actions.
