Hillary Clinton is pretty cut up about not being the current US president, and losing to someone like Donald Trump can’t make it any easier.
Her new book, titled ‘What Happened’, is only due for release on September 12. Of course some details have already been leaked, and it’s clear she carries quite a grudge against Bernie Sanders.
Bernie was one of her Democratic rivals, and along the way the two squared off on a number of policies.
As per some leaked pages on Twitter, Hillary was left very frustrated at how many of those played out:
Some more zingers via CNN:
Clinton…said Sanders “had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character” because the two Democrats “agreed on so much.”
…”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.
“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. “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.”
…Clinton noted that the Vermont independent “isn’t a Democrat.”
“That’s not a smear, that’s what he says,” she wrote. “He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.”
After outlining how she disagrees with Sanders’ view of the Democratic Party, Clinton concludes, “I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too.”
I’ve saved the best for last, because who would have thought we would hear a comparison between Bernie and the weird hitchhiker from There’s Something About Mary?
This via the Independent:
…Clinton did not hold back in her book, comparing the senator to the “deranged hitchhiker” in the 1998 Ben Stiller movie…
“A deranged hitchhiker says he’s come up with a brilliant plan,” Ms Clinton wrote, describing a scene in the movie. “Instead of the famous ‘eight-minute abs’ exercise routine, he’s going to market ‘seven minute abs.’ It’s the same, just quicker. Then the driver, played by Ben Stiller, says, ‘Well, why not six-minute abs?’”
She added: “That’s what it was like in policy debates with Bernie. We would propose a bold infrastructure plan or an ambitious new apprenticeship program for young people, and then Bernie would announce basically the same thing, but bigger. On issue after issue, it was like he kept proposing four-minute abs, or even no-minute abs. Magic abs!”
Unleash the fury, Hillary!
For those scratching their heads, HERE’S that clip from the movie.
You know who else is having a good chuckle at Hillary’s book? The Donald, of course.
He couldn’t help himself, retweeting this a few days back:
Donald, I thought we spoke about how you need to stop tweeting stupid memes? It’s not presidential and makes you look like an absolute imbecile.
Yes, even worse than your mom and those shitty videos she shares on Facebook.
