Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is attempting to market off her failure by penning a book.
Her work, What Happened, is an autobiographical account of the election, and supposedly gives her side of the story as to why the Democratic Party was laid to waste in 2016.
But unsurprisingly, a section of the book was devoted to trashing now President Trump– and Hillary Clinton may have gone too far with her outrageous allegation.
Excerpts from the book revealed Hillary Clinton not-so-subtly called Trump a “creep”, among other accusations.
Clinton attempted to explain away her “discomfort” by referring to fake news stories claiming Trump made unwanted sexual advances against women before his political career.
Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is resorting to familiar tactics in her upcoming book, in which she attacks President Trump for allegedly standing too close to her, and calls him a “creep” — according to excerpts from the book released.
But from excerpts released to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, she also takes issue with where Trump stood at the second presidential debate — accusing him of getting too close to her.
“In one excerpt, Clinton writes of Trump standing behind her during the October 9, 2016 debate, “‘This is not okay,’ I thought. It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage, and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, ‘Well, what would you do?’ Do you stay calm, keep smiling, and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me. So back up.’ I chose option A. I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with difficult men trying to throw me off. I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard. I wonder, though, whether I should have chosen option B. It certainly would have been better TV. Maybe I have overlearned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world.”
“I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with men trying to throw me off,” added Clinton.
Despite her allegations in the book, Clinton insisted she wanted to put the “uncomfortable situation” behind her, and “move on”– even from her devastating loss in the election.
“I want to pull back the curtain on an experience that was exhilarating, joyful, infuriating, and just plain humbling. Every day I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me,” she said. “And I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down. But I did. I couldn’t get the job done. And I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”
Hillary Clinton’s writing career- much like her political career- seems to be headed for disaster with her allegations against the president.
Though she has been a verbal opponent of the president for some time, what she was insinuating in her book crossed a line, even for a Democratic politician.
Do you believe Hillary Clinton was accusing President Trump of unseemly behaviors?
