That Hillary went into a seething tirade at her campaign watch party after learning she was losing isn’t exactly big news.
But the details concerning how all that went down on election night and what she said immediately upon learning it actually is news.
According to a new tell-all book, Hillary remarked cynically, “They were never going to let me be president.”
Of course, that begs the question who is ‘they’? Bill Clinton speculated that there was a conspiracy between the New York Times and Trump to secure his victory for the purpose of better headlines. Right.
Meanwhile, we’re aboard an alien spaceship in the Bermuda Triangle sipping mint juleps with Big Foot.
Moving right along.
Here’s more from Hotair…
One day, when Americans of stout heart rise up and declare themselves free of it, the 2016 election will be over, but … today is not that day, friends. While the minutiae and meaning of Donald Trump’s campaign continue to get dissected, the other campaign gets some attention in a new book from reporter Amy Chozick titled Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling.
The Daily Beast’s Gideon Resnick excerpts several passages from the book, none of which make Hillary Clinton sympathetic. For example, this recounting of her Election Night notification reminds everyone of both Hillary’s sense of entitlement and paranoia:
“Of all the Brooklyn aides, Jen Palmieri had the most pleasant bedside manner,” Chozick writes. “That made her the designated deliverer of bad news to Hillary. But not this time. She told Robby there was no way she was going to tell Hillary she couldn’t win. That’s when Robby, drained and deflated, watching the results with his team in a room down the hall from Hillary’s suite, labored into the hallway of the Peninsula to break the news. Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’”
