Two-time loser Hillary Clinton just issued a major threat to we the people of the United States by telling us all that she doesn’t intend to shut up and go away but will, instead, keep sticking her nose into contemporary politics and will also continue to blather about current events.
Yeah, just what we need.
Hillary continues to pop up all over the place despite the fact that she was rejected (again) for president of the United States. Despite being a two-time loser, she keeps showing up on late night TV shows (she just appeared with Jimmy Fallon last week) and in the news.
Apparently, she has heard enough from people who want her to just go away, too, as she is now out there saying she ain’t goin’ nowhere, according to the Washington Examiner.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she still plans to make her voice heard on issues related to the future and isn’t “going anywhere.”
“There is too much at stake not to speak out about the things that matter most,” Clinton said Monday night at the University of California-Davis.
“Some of those people online and elsewhere who were saying like ‘You know, we kind of wish she’d just wouldn’t say anything anymore’ and ‘we kinda just hopes she disappears’ have not been following me for the last 40 years, I can tell you that much. I am not going anywhere other than right into the middle of the debate about the future.”
Here is a little bit of Hillary on with Jimmy Fallon, if you can take it…
Clinton has been fond of joking that she downed a lot of chardonnay as she tried to cope with losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
But she also started a new organization to push her ideas…
“Now I also started a new organization called Onward Together, which I write about at the end of the book, and it is designed to do a couple of things to encourage the outpouring of activism and engagement that we’re seeing across America now.
“I still yell at my TV, I admit that, but it helps a lot to be able to channel the worry and the pent up emotion into something constructive. And I hope that many of you here tonight will come to that same conclusion about how important it is to stay engaged, stay active, fight for causes and candidates you believe will make a difference.”
Of course, all this has been geared to sell her rendition of why she lost the election, her new book, “What Happened.”
The book has surprised me, anyway. I assumed it would be another millstone around her neck with dismal sales. However, according to Time Magazine, her book did well right out of the gate selling over 300,000 copies in its first week. That is a very good amount for a political book!
…Hillary Clinton’s new book, which may have only hit shelves a week ago, but has already sold more than 300,000 copies, according to publisher Simon & Schuster, breaking some records along the way.
NPD Bookscan says What Happened sold 168,000 hardcover copies ($17.99) in its first week on sale, with sales of e-books ($14.99), CD ($25.94) and digital audio ($23.95, or free with Audible subscription) versions making up the remainder.
Simon & Schuster ticked off some other impressive-sounding sales stats in a release. What Happened accounted for the best week of digital audio sales — ever — for the company. It also sold more ebooks in a week than any nonfiction Simon & Schuster title since the 2011 publication of Steve Jobs’ biography.
The book did well on Amazon.com, too. Fox Business took note of this in September:
An Amazon spokesperson told FOX Business that results for their best-seller list update every hour and declined to give exact sales numbers regarding Clinton’s “What Happened.” A spokesperson for Simon & Schuster, Clinton’s publisher, also declined FOX Business’ request for sales numbers.
So, color me surprised. None of her other books were commercial successes. They all had dismal sales. But this one has done quite well.
