Hillary Clinton’s new book about the 2016 election has gotten some fairly critical feedback. For a candidate who lost the Presidential election based on her inability to connect with the everyday workers of this country, Clinton has decided to pass the blame around to anyone and everyone who she thinks played a part in her unprecedented loss to President Donald Trump.
Oddly enough, this book was announced by the publishing company less than two weeks following the inauguration of Donald Trump. So to get this straight – Hillary lost in November and less than two months later started writing a book to blame everyone else for her own shortcomings.
We’ve heard some crazy stories that are reported to come out of this book, including her feeling intimidated by Donald Trump in the debates, fighting within her campaign, and now about former primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
After blaming everyone and taking very little blame on her own message, a new report from CNN is claiming that the biggest blame for her loss is attributed to the socialist 75-year-old who based his campaign on reaching out to college kids. A man who ran for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States without actually being a Democrat. The Jew who ran on a platform that attracted 90% atheists.
So what did Hillary have to say about Bernie Sanders that caused her to lose her election?
“Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign.”
“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.”
So she blames the socialist who she had to cheat to win against, and says that he “paved the way” for Donald Trump to run a campaign against her, calling her out for being corrupt.
I’ve got some advice for Hillary: it’s a lot easier to convince a country that you’re honest if you’re actually honest. It’s a lot easier to convince a country that you’re not corrupt if you’re actually not corrupt. And even though it’s easy to point fingers at everyone else for your campaign faults, don’t forget the biggest problem – you.
When you tell the American people that you’re going to put them out of a job, or especially call them racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., they are going to be less likely to vote for you. And that’s not rocket science, it’s common sense. You can’t tell someone they are disgraceful and then expect them to vote for you.
When you lie to the families of four dead American soldiers, threaten the lives of women who your husband raped while holding the office of the President, and lie to congress and the entire country about your use of a private email server as Secretary of State, you cannot expect to win an election.
The real problem isn’t Bernie Sanders. It wasn’t Joe Biden. It wasn’t infighting within your campaign. The problem was your inability to connect with the American people, and more than anything else, the problem was that you were one of the worst candidates for President of the United States that we have seen since George Wallace.
The problem, Hillary, was you.
Stay political, my friends.
