Looks like Hillary Clinton’s new book, entitled “What Happened,” is going to be, unsurprisingly, a collection of finger-pointing at anyone and everyone who she believes cost her the election.
Bernie-loving millennials aren’t going to like the latest excerpts to be released ahead of publication.
In the revelations posted by Clinton supporters, the woman who had the party nomination rigged in her favor blasted President Obama for not allowing her to go after Bernie, labeled his supporters as sexist, and called out the Vermont senator himself for causing “lasting damage” to her presidential aspirations.
Hillary said being restrained by President Obama – which is totally not sexist by the way – made her feel “like I was in a straitjacket.”

The rest of the nation, incidentally, thought you belonged in a straitjacket, Hillary. But that’s neither here nor there.
Clinton then turned her venom on Sanders’s supporters:
“Some of his supporters, the so-called Bernie Bros, took to harassing my supporters online. It got ugly and more than a little sexist,” she wrote.
Poor Bernie Bros … It’s tough when you finally realize that Clinton believes anybody – ANYBODY – who opposed her is a misogynist. Welcome to the club, gents.
The former Democrat candidate then turned her venom towards Bernie himself.
“When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution, he couldn’t come up with anything,” Clinton wrote in one excerpt. “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.”
First off, finding a Hillary flip-flop is like finding a lollipop in a candy store. They’re all stocked up. Here’s one that comes to mind, relevant with today’s news on DACA, which Clinton strongly supports.
Audio that surfaced in 2015 showed Hillary was once “adamantly against illegal immigrants.”
“I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants,” Clinton said in a 2003 radio interview.
And here she is in 2017 regarding illegal immigrants:

There are a plethora of other examples.
That said, blaming Bernie for the ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign should be reason enough to put this woman in the aforementioned straitjacket. It wasn’t Sanders’s fault that the moniker stuck … It was the person who repeatedly lied, deceived, stole, and cheated her way to the nomination.
Hillary put the ‘Crooked’ in ‘Crooked Hillary.’
So, Hillary blames Bernie 4 Trump’s “Crooked Hillary”, blames Obama 4 “lay off Bernie”, blames Bernie Bros 4 sexism. https://t.co/6MjMmc3q8m

The bottom line here is that, as per usual, everyone is to blame for Hillary’s loss. Everyone that is, except the person she sees every day in the mirror.
This week it’s Bernie. Next week, when the book is finally released and all 12 people scoop up their much anticipated copies, we’ll see who else gets the blame. It’ll be somebody new, page by page, chapter by chapter.
