Shattered: A Portrait of Clinton’s Failed Candidacy

Unless you’ve been living in a spider hole for the past eight months, you know that Hillary Clinton only narrowly lost her bid for the presidency by a slender margin to an unhinged tycoon with an itchy nuclear finger who colluded with the KGB to hack the election and steal the throne.

At least, that’s what you’d believe if you took CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times at their word. That tiresome screed, however, has been contradicted by a new book entitled, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.”

In its pages, a series of inside scoops from the DNC portray the failed candidate as a deceptive, aloof, cruel, and condescending psychopath who believed the world owed her a place in the White House.

The book opens; “[…] no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Hillary’s campaign–the candidate herself.”

The first story in Shattered portrays a candidate as a tyrant with a terrifying and hair-trigger temper that she simply could not control.

“We got an ass-chewing. Hillary was so mad she couldn’t think straight.”

The book describes her having been humiliated in the Michigan primary. Hillary had been up late into the night after her loss, thinking, go over thing again and again, and drinking. Hillary blamed her team for making bad decisions about where to take the campaign. She sent out emails saying it had been a mistake to go to Detroit- a crumbling city under decades of Democratic leadership.

Sensing her agitation, one of her leading aides set up a morning meeting which would allow Clinton to vent. But it didn’t help. Hillary only became more apoplectic, and more incoherent. According to Hillary; “Mook, (a leading aide) had pinched pennies and failed to put organizers on the ground; the polling and analytics were a touch too rosy, meaning the campaign didn’t know Bernie was ahead; she had set up an ambiguous decision-making structure on the campaign; and she’d focused too heavily on black and brown voters at the expense of competing for the whites who had formed her base in 2008.”

What her aides all knew, but were afraid to say was that the one person responsible for the constant failings on the campaign trail was Hilary Clinton herself. But she could never admit her mistakes, and she blamed everyone around her- everyone she could get a hold of. And she expressed her disappointment in the most abusive terms imaginable.

Meanwhile, her entire campaign staff labored tirelessly to conceal Hilary’s tirades from the public, and from her dwindling support base.

But it wasn’t just a poorly run campaign that made all of the DNC’s dirty dealing a complete waste of time and money. It was the fact that Hilary had broken so many laws, expressed disdain for her fellow political leaders, called more than half of the nation ‘deplorable,’ and utterly failed to cover her attempts to steal the election.

“In her ear the whole time, spurring her on to cast blame on others and never admit to anything, was her husband. Neither Clinton could accept the simple fact that Hillary had hamstrung her own campaign and dealt the most serious blow to her own presidential aspirations.”

It’s interesting that Hillary seemed to take her entire personality from Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, which admonishes adherents to, “Admit nothing. Deny everything, and make counter-accusations.”

What’s sad is that these leading liberal representatives of our republic would use this venomous and underhanded tack with their own team, their own aides, and the very people who are most invested in their success.

It’s a tactic that we’re continuing to see play out during the infancy of the Trump administration as we continually learn that everything the Clintons accuse their opponents of turns out to have a place on their own list of misdeeds.

Not mentioned in the book, however, is a grossly underreported incident at NBC after an interview with Matt Lauer. The reporter laid into Clinton about her emails, and about Benghazi.

Apparently, her aides and Donna Brazil had failed to properly instruct the anchor. Hillary laid into staffers in the dressing room. She is quoted as having said, “If that son of a bitch (Trump) wins, we will all hang from nooses.”

In the end analysis, it’s a happy story. Happy because the nation avoided falling under the jurisdiction of a crazed and violent president who did everything in her power to lie cheat and steal the election- and still managed to lose dramatically.
