The unfortunate title for Hillary Clinton’s new memoir about her failed 2016 presidential election has caused a tremendous outpouring of Hillar-ity on the Internet. Since emerging from a deep depression in the woods behind her home in upstate New York, Clinton has been on the war path blaming everything and everyone but herself for her November defeat and now it’s in book form, aptly titled, What Happened.
The Simon & Schuster-published book will hit shelves September 12, and promises to give us an unguarded Hillary Clinton.
"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I'm letting my guard down,” Clinton writes in the introduction.
The publisher says the book will detail her experiences as the first woman nominated for president by a major political party coming at a time “marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules." The book also promises to touch on Clinton’s “challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics." And, of course, Clinton will describe what it was like to run against Donald Trump, “the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterwards."
But why waste time reading a book when everybody already knows exactly “what happened:”
