Hillary’s Hilarious ‘Herstory’
In May, a New York Magazine feature quoted (unemployed) Hillary Clinton: "I beat both of them."
Not quite. In a rigged primary, Clinton outlasted Bernie Sanders, whoâ€™s not even a Democrat, but, by an Electoral College vote of 304 to 227, lost to President Donald Trump — decisively.
Hillary and her surrogates in the partisan national media relentlessly hurled insults at candidate Trump, nevertheless, â€œsure thingâ€ Hillary became a two-time loser.
In a rare candid CNN moment, David Axelrod, campaign manager and advisor to former President Barack Obama, dismissed Hillaryâ€™s excuses: "â€¦it takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump."
Axelrod: â€œ[FBI Director] Jim Comey didn’t tell [Hillary] not to campaign in Wisconsin… Comey didn’t say, ‘Don’t put any resources into Michigan until the final week of the campaign.’ One of the things that hindered herâ€¦was a sense that she neverâ€¦[took] responsibility for her mistakes, particularly that server."
Astonishingly, elitist Hillary took working-class white voters for granted, lumped them with Trump, declared them â€œdeplorablesâ€ and made little effort to appeal to them.
Axelrod advised Hillary to â€œmove on,â€ as did former Clinton aides.
She wonâ€™t, though (Google: â€œHarold Stassenâ€).
Displaying a comical lack of self-awareness, also in May, Hillary, Class of â€™69, spoke at Wellesley Collegeâ€™s commencement, telling graduates, â€œYou are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason.â€
Laughably, Hillary — who once claimed poor eyesight prevented her post-graduate Marine Corps enlistment, said she was â€œdead brokeâ€ when leaving the White House and came under sniper fire in Tuzla, swore her server wasnâ€™t hacked, that she made no attempts at concealment and was never subpoenaed for anything â€" accused others of lying.
Hillary told graduates, falsely, that Richard Nixonâ€™s presidency ended â€œin disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice.â€ Nixon wasnâ€™t impeached, but Hillaryâ€™s husband was â€" for obstruction of justice. The irony is especially amusing since, unlike Bill, Nixon had enough residual character and the good grace to resign.
To relieve their disappointment, Hillaryâ€™s cultists persist, chanting, â€œTrump is not my president.â€ But, we all can say with absolute certainty that Hillary isnâ€™t anybodyâ€™s.
Thereâ€™s now a hallucinatory (parodic?) website called Hillary Beat Trump that her fans can visit to pretend she won. Declaring that Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump, the website calls itself â€œNews from the Real America, where the majority rules.â€
Featuring headlines such as â€œAfter first 100 days, Clinton’s approval rating soars to 91 percentâ€ and â€œHistorians say Clintonâ€™s presidency is already in â€˜all-time top 5,â€™â€ the site allows despondent progressives to emotionally transport themselves to an illusory, presumably comforting alternate political universe.
The website whines, â€œLong live the true president, Hillary Rodham Clinton.â€ Itâ€™s all nonsense, of course.
Even as bitter-enders at CNN and MSNBC fawn over a new â€œFeistyâ€ Hillary â€œFinding Her Grooveâ€ and â€œTaking Downâ€ President Trump, thereâ€™s a nagging sense of dÃ©jÃ vu: In twenty-five years, ultimately, all of the â€œNew Hillarysâ€ have been exposed as the same old unappealing Hillary.
