That's the title of the book due out next week that purports to be the "inside scoop" on happenings during the Pantsuit campaign for president. Her legendary tantrums and meltdowns are among the featured depictions; evidently she was particularly upset by her loss to Grandpa Marx in Michigan.
Political journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes tell the hour by hour drama of how Clinton’s confidence at her victory was replaced by anxiety and resignation as Trump won the biggest upset in modern political history on November 9 last year.
The book says that as the results rolled in for states like Pennsylvania, the clear tipping point for the race for the White House, Obama called Clinton and said: ‘You need to concede’.
Bill, they report, had a bad feeling about things after the Brexit vote, correctly guessing that the peons might have decided that they'd had just about enough of the existing political machinery. A memo to Pantsuit's campaign warning that Trump just might be able to attract sufficient numbers of disaffected voters to put him over the top went unheeded. Certainly, there were clues that the Pantsuit campaign was in trouble:
A few days before the election she was doing a rally in Florida with a backdrop of boxes in what looked like a junior high storage room while Trump was in front of 10,000. But the alarm bells should have been going off long before then.
And the Regressive elements abandoned all pretense when the results came in. Today, they don't bother with trying to hide their loathing and hatred; they revel in it. Here in Little Beirut alone, they caused over a million dollars in damages during multiple nights of rioting. It's almost as though there's a contest between Portland and Berkeley to determine who can field the biggest and most destructive crowds of jerks.
Even the older folks get into the spirit of it all here: my 90 year-old father-in-law (who came from the U.K., a country which at the beginning of WW II was importing over 70% of its food and other goods - which was why German subs targeted merchant ships) is a staunch Democratic; hates Trump. I'm not especially enamored of Trump, but Pantsuit was out of the question as far as I was concerned. Fortunately, since the election's already decided before they even count our votes, it's not an issue. I've learned not to take presidential politics very seriously, because our votes have no impact upon the outcome. A lot of the newcomers here don't seem to understand that. But how deep does Trump-hate run here? Try this:
PORTLAND, Ore. — An Oregon man died peacefully earlier this month, after his ex-wife falsely told him President Donald Trump was impeached.
According to the obituary in the Oregonian - which is now going viral - Michael Garland Elliott's health had been deteriorating for the past decade. "He honestly didn't know" which year he was born in, either 1940 or 1941, in Charlottesville, Va. and eventually moved to the west coast. Elliott was "the sharpest dresser in town, single-handedly keeping Nike's apparel wing in the black."
His ex-wife was by his side before he passed away, and the last thing she said to him was, "Donald Trump has been impeached."
"Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded," the obituary reads.
