How to Tell that Hillary Clinton Loves Money Above All Else

What Happened 3In a recent HardWired News article (Hillary’s Blame Game – September 8) we opined she was writing her latest and most personally embarrassing book, What Happened, not to exonerate herself, but simply to make money.  But how can we really know if she cares more about money than her reputation?

Well, HardWired News has figured it out.  Here are the…

Top Ten Ways to Know That Hillary Clinton Cares More About Money Than Her Reputation, Public Service, or Just About Anything Else

Hillary’s Blame Game

What Happened 2Hillary Clinton’s new book of excuses for losing the election, What Happened, will soon be available to readers.  That hasn’t stopped commentary on leaked—intentionally or otherwise—passages from making it into the news.

The coverage has been intense and will likely increase upon the book’s actual release on September 12.  So HardWired News won’t repeat all of what has already been reported or is likely to be in the days ahead.  From what we’ve seen, the amazing thing is simply that Hillary continues to blame everyone but herself.  Oh, there’s the soft disclaimer along the lines of sure, I guess I share some of the blame.  But most of the recrimination is directed at others.  That alone is not surprising, given Mrs. Clinton’s penchant for finger pointing and denial.  But what I found amazing is that she blames Democrats, women and the Washington establishment more than she does Donald Trump or the Republicans.  Here are a few gems taken from Fox News coverage of the pre-release.

Bernie Sanders for running a spirited campaign

“resorting to innuendo and impugning my character” and comparing him to a “deranged hitchhiker”

Sanders’ goal was not “to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.”

President Obama for protecting Sanders

“(Obama) warned…not to ‘hit back against Bernie’s attacks’ because they ‘didn’t want to alienate Bernie’s supporters’ “

Joe Biden

For saying Hillary’s message “did not talk about what (Democrats) always stood for — and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class”

FBI Director James Comey on the email scandal investigation

“…Comey had badly overstepped his bounds…”

Her own campaign staff

“My team raised concerns (about confronting Comey publicly)…In the end, we decided it would be better to just let it go and try to move on. Looking back, that (her team’s advice) was a mistake.”

Vladimir Putin

Saying he was on a “personal vendetta” against her

The pollsters

Claiming she was a “victim” of being considered a “sure-thing”, thereby keeping many of her supporters from turning out

Perhaps most amazing of all, WOMEN

“One would think that the first female presidential nominee would keep solidarity with her fellow women, especially after thousands of them marched in opposition to Trump shortly after his inauguration…where (were) those feelings of solidarity, outrage and passion during the election?”

And finally, uber-liberal NBC personality and lapdog interviewer Matt Lauer

“Lauer was supposed to focus his questioning on my (Clinton’s) stances on foreign policy, but instead immediately brought up the email scandal…’Now I was ticked off. NBC knew exactly what it was doing here. The network was treating this like an episode of The Apprentice in which…Trump stars and ratings soar…Lauer turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush.’”

Yep, there’s barely a mention of Trump or the Republicans.  The tell-all book Shattered, Shatteredan inside look at her doomed campaign, paints a much different picture of an unlikable candidate with no resonating message and a well-earned reputation for sleaziness.  And leaders of her own party are growing weary of her bawling tantrum over her loss.  Recently Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was quoted as saying

“When you lose to somebody who has 40% popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself.”

Monopoly Money Man
Clinton

My own view is she doesn’t care as much about exonerating herself as she does about making money on this book, a thing at which she has proven very good in the past.  Afterall, the money chase is what the Clintons have always been about.  If you voted for somebody other than Hillary last November, congratulate yourself.  Nobody wants a crybaby loser for a president.  Personally, I’m happier with Donald Trump, warts and all.
