Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened, is turning out to be a litany of excuses for her November electoral loss. But Clinton isn’t limiting her blame just to those around her before and during her abortive Presidential campaign.
According to snippets of the book released over the weekend, Clinton says he loss was due partially to – *shakes magic 8-ball* – the pussy-hatted Women’s March protesters who took to DC in droves just one week after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, but Clinton claims weren’t dedicated enough to show up at the polls.
“I couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage, and passion had been during the election,” Clinton says in a teaser from the book.
For all Clinton knows, they might have been right there – but the millions who showed up to march in 15 major cities as part of an organized “resistance” to a Trump agenda that had yet to materialize, only looked like a big group when they were all together, sporting their pink hats and witty signs in specific places.
When they went home from their marches and demonstrations, they went back to solidly blue areas, the kind that voted reliably for Hillary Clinton – not from places like Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, where Clinton failed to focus her efforts.
