Hillary Clinton appeared on ABC News this week to promote her new book, a work of fiction called State of Terror, that could as easily have described her real life leadership as Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate.
There was one bit of good news for Americans. Though Clinton says she’ll never be out of politics, she’s not planning to run for office again.
“I will never be out of the game of politics – I’m not going to be running for anything,” Hillary said during the interview.
But she doesn’t have to be in office to cause problems with her mainstream media buddies. When asked about social media, Clinton said, “I’m hoping… we can come up with appropriate regulations and changes that will rein in this overwhelming power that a company like Facebook has.”
Of course, government has to get involved to crack down on freedoms she calls “behaviors that undermine institutions.”
“…But try to require them [social media companies] or prohibit if necessary, behaviors that undermine institutions and other important matters,” she added.
It would have been nice to see Clinton retire into the sunset, but her new novel has given her another reason to appear before the public to spew additional fiction for those willing to listen.
It’s unclear how involved Clinton was in writing her new novel. That didn’t bother the New York Times though, they’ve already proclaimed its greatness.
She’ll have the help of the left to push it to bestseller status, but it will be interesting how many Americans are actually willing to pay their hard-earned dollars to read any more of Clinton’s made-up storylines.
Most Americans had enough of that after Benghazi. Or after her made up Russian collusion story to damage Donald Trump in her effort to become president. Or after her Clinton Foundation was exposed as a shady pay to play outfit.
Clinton remains strong at fiction, regardless. It wasn’t until this September that the truth was revealed that she funded the Alfa Bank media scam, according to Eric Trump.
“I didn’t know until Durham indicted Michael (Sussman) two days ago that this whole thing was actually done by the Clinton campaign. We had no idea where it came from. We worked with the FBI for a year, year-and-a-half, all of our IT vendors worked with the FBI. They wanted one thing, Maria. They wanted a headline in The New York Times or Washington Post saying, Donald Trump or the Trump organization under investigation by the FBI for ties with Russia which is exactly what they got,” he said during a Fox News interview.
That’s a long time to keep something secret. She certainly has had a way to spin a story, going back far longer than many have known.
