'What Happened' — Clinton's Still in Denial

Clinton's latest "tell-all" book sounds to be nothing more than a repeat of the same excuses she's already given.

Hillary Clinton’s latest book, entitled “What Happened,” is due to hit bookstores in September. Word is that Clinton will explain why she lost the election, as if we haven’t already heard that load of garbage from her every other month since the election. Has Hillary finally come to grips with the fact that she lost because most Americans didn’t trust her and her crime syndicate? Will she finally concede that she was selling something Americans weren’t buying? No, from the sound of it, Hillary has yet to get off the blame train.

The Hill describes Clinton’s upcoming book as follows:

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book will double down on Russia’s interference and James Comey’s involvement in her stunning election defeat, according to sources familiar with the memoir.

Privately, Clinton has told friends and longtime associates that she “wants the whole story out there” as she rushes to tweak and put the finishing touches on the book due out in September.

“She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no uncertain terms,” one longtime ally said, “She wants the whole story out there from her own perspective. I think a lot of people are going to be really surprised by how much she reveals.”

Surprised that she would shift blame anywhere and everywhere but her own severe likability deficit, criminal behavior and bad campaign decisions? Don’t be. Indeed, the only real question remaining is whether the sales of this book will improve upon her previous flop, “Hard Choices.” If not, one wonders if Clinton will again lay the blame on Comey and the Russians.
