Hillary Clinton: Nobody Likes Bernie

One of the most curious things to watch after the 2016 election was the unrelenting reclamation project called Hillary Clinton. It seems the unending work of powerful figures in the Washington and Hollywood establishment. The project now has a name: “Hillary.” It is the latest documentary on Hulu that seeks to show how Hillary was a victim of sexism but remains the oracle of our age. The work was the brainchild of producer Howard T. Owens and Washington power broker Robert Barnett who represents Clinton. Barnett offered undisclosed footage as an enticement for another effort to repackage Clinton’s historic loss to Trump. The film by Nanette Burstein apparently will be largely devoid of critical voices, except Hillary’s of course. Lashing out at her critics, she takes particular aim at Bernie Sanders who she seems to blame for ruining her coronation but making the 2016 Democratic primary competitive. In an ironic projection, she declares that “no one likes Bernie” — a curious view since it took the help of the DNC to rig the primary against his surging support in 2016.  Clinton also pointedly declined to promise that she would support Sanders if he won the primary. Update:  Clinton received overwhelming criticism and later backtracked to say she would support the nominee while adding “I thought everyone wanted my authentic, unvarnished views!”  It was a reminder to many why Clinton remains an unpopular figure with many voters. Update:  Clinton received overwhelming criticism and later backtracked to say she would support the nominee while adding “I thought everyone wanted my authentic, unvarnished views!”  It was a reminder to many why Clinton remains an unpopular figure with many voters.

The interview is classic Clinton. She feigns reluctance to criticize Sanders during the primary. She insists “I am not going to go there yet” and then goes there. Her attack on Sanders is read to her and then she strongly eludes to his sexism and his cabal of supporters.

After the election, Clinton alternatively blamed sexismracismself-hating womendomineering boyfriendsRussian hackersBernie Sanders, and of course, James Comey.  The most obvious reason is that Clinton remains a highly unpopular figure and was viewed as inauthentic on the campaign by many.  Many of us were critical when the Democratic establishment (and virtually every Democratic member of Congress) all but guaranteed the nomination of Clinton despite every poll showing her to be unpopular and the voters seeking an anti-establishment choice.

Now her ire appears directed at Sanders. In an embarrassingly one sided interview on documentary, Lacey Rose quotes Clinton in saying “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.” She goes to say that “people got sucked into” his campaign and strongly suggests that he is himself sexist. (“I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women.”)

It seems like powerful figures will not stop in this reclamation project until people relent and agree that Hillary lost because of sexism, Comey, Sanders, self-loathing women, a conservative cabal, and other late additions to the Clinton black list. The recurring suggestion that that there was no reason why the voters would oppose Hillary so it must have just been sexism.  It simply cannot be that she was universally viewed as inauthentic due to her refusal to answer questions directly or her changing her positions on core issues from gay marriage to war powers to suit the polls. It cannot be that she remained one of the biggest war hawks in Washington or that she and her husband cashed in on speeches and deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

The problem is that it has not worked. She remains highly unpopular with voters so the public is being called to yet another reeducation on the life and continuing times of Hillary Clinton. The question is whether a general statement of concession will end this never ending reclamation project.  Even Sanders might be willing to sign on to such a collective capitulation in the interest of just moving on.

  1. Hawt Tulsi’s revenge! Sues Lady MacBeth for a cool 50 mil. Go Tulsi go! Could this Be HIllary’s Act V?

    “She should have died hereafter;
    There would have been a time for such a word.
    — To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
    Signifying nothing.”

    1. Of course Mespo would like making free political speech subject to law suits, he’s a lawyer. Hubbard is a public figure and an “asset” is an unknowing dupe, like our president. Misery loves company. Take odds on Tulsa collecting.

        I bet you’ve seen lots of these trials on Matlock, huh? You can argue that crapola to the jury all you want. They know what was said and what was meant by it. I see a big verdict coming and I bet so does HIllary.

        1. mespo – the first book, and a surefiire best-seller, is “Best Alleys to Puke in the Mid – Atlantic: A College Primer.”

    2. If Tulsi doesn’t commit Clinticide and the suit moves forward then one might expect depositions. How nice to place Hillary’s mouth on display. That is something I don’t think Hillary would want. That would be fun to follow at least until they consider an out of court settlement.

    Can you ‘authentically’ tell us why you flew on Epstein’s plane 2x Bill 26x, stayed at his compound in New Mexico and had Ghislaine Maxwell attend your daughter’s wedding two years after she settled out of court for being a pedophile sex trafficker?

    Between Harvey, Epstein and Ghislean Maxwell it must be hard to keep track of all the rapists and sex trafficking pedophiles in your life.

  3. Do you see Anonymous the Stupid. You again had to open your mouth to insult me and made yourself look stupid again. I’m trying to help you, but it appears you don’t learn.

    1. Turley: “The most obvious reason is that Clinton remains a highly unpopular figure and was viewed as inauthentic on the campaign by many.”

      Clinton was Americans’ choice as the most popular living woman 22 times, including every year from 2002 though 2017. Nancy Reagan was only so picked three times; Michelle Obama and Barbara Bush were Americans’ choice just twice, and Laura Bush received that honor but once.

      1. How did we get this?
        Hillary Clinton is more unpopular than Donald Trump. Let that sink in
        Donald Trump is one of the least popular politicians in the history of the United States. Yet, Trump is still more popular than Hillary Clinton. Let that sink in.
        According to the latest Bloomberg National Poll, Trump has a net favorability of 41% whereas Clinton has a net favorability of 39%.

    2. That’s after she was allowed to skate on willfull mishandling of classified information and she and her retainers were allowed to skate on charges of spoilation of evidence. The entitlement mentality of partisan Democrats is pretty amusing.

        1. Hillary Clinton lost to a game show host

          Hillary Clinton ignored Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania and didn’t figure out the electoral college system?

          Brilliant!

      1. She wasn’t allowed to skate. The Dept. of Justice I.G. looked into the FBI’s handling of both the Clinton Foundation and Clinton email investigations and found no wrongdoing.

    3. How did Clinton’s escape the Epstein child trafficking sex scandal?
      ‘We Had It All’: ABC Anchor Reveals Network Killed Her Epstein Story in Leaked Video
      She had pictures. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. We had Clinton, we had everything,” Robach noted.

    4. I didn’t read the link you provided. How does Silver isolate the impact one variable had on the 130 million people who voted?

      For example, on October 7, 2016 – about four weeks before the election – NBC and the Washington Post conspired to try to take down Trump when someone at NBC leaked the Access Hollywood tape to Jeff Bezos blog.

      Does Silver think the disclosure that Carlos Danger – the convicted sexual predator married to the wife of the Democrat nominee – had emails on his laptop he was not authorized to have impacted the election, but the Washington Post conspiring with NBC to publish a video seen around the world ad nauseum had no impact?

  4. Hillary is consistent with being a needy woman whose husband didn’t give her what she needed: a proper beating

    Curtains for the Clintons

    Nothing they have done lately suggests that they have learned anything… The Clintons are still unable to hold themselves accountable.

    Their pathological need to be relevantin America is belied by a Canadian arena, where stretches of empty seats bear witness to the passing of their relevance.

    1. Estovir, it scarcely surprises me that you would think women need a ‘proper beating’ now and then. However sarcastically you meant that, it conforms to your image as a caveman on these threads.

          I don’t care, I love the smell of it
          Sticks and stones may break my bones
          But chains and whips excite me
          ‘Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it

          But chains and whips excite me

    2. So many caterwauling dissatisfied people, it’s a shame.

      “In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all-important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency.”

      Don’t worry, be happy, go home, don’t let the door hit your — on the way out.

      “If all earthly power were given me,” said Lincoln in a speech delivered in Peoria, Illinois, on October 16, 1854, “I should not know what to do, as to the existing institution [of slavery]. My first impulse would be to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia, to their own native land.” “…he asked whether freed blacks should be made “politically and socially our equals?” “My own feelings will not admit of this,” he said, “and [even] if mine would, we well know that those of the great mass of white people will not … We can not, then, make them equals.”

      – Abraham Lincoln

  5. How can President Trump be impeached and a member of the criminal Clinton family, Hillary, not be in prison (Bill took care of his latest vulnerability with thugs and ligatures in the Metropolitan Correctional Center)?

    There was and is overwhelming evidence of crimes committed by Hillary, beginning with the bribe she took from Tyson Chicken over 40 years ago as the Arkansas governor’s wife. More recently, the Director of the FBI, James Comey, delineated and did not dispute the voluminous evidence against her, he simply lied and said that no prosecutor would take the case (Comey should have put it up for bid on E-Bay). Additionally, forensic accountants would ravage, decimate and totally annihilate the Clinton Foundation by simply auditing its books since inception. America would need an army division of accountants to “follow the money,” Secretary of State Hillary’s “pay-to-play,” and prosecute crimes globally related to that criminal Clinton enterprise.

    Omnipresent and ubiquitous corruption (how could the 7th Floor be expunged and Christopher Wray, denizen of the 7th Floor, be appointed Director) has contaminated the Founders’ America in the name of the communist principle of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” in stark contrast and diametric opposition to the American thesis of “freedom through self-reliance” facilitated by severely limited and restricted, infinitesimal government having the sole mission and charge of merely providing security and infrastructure as the “general Welfare.”

  6. Typical illiterate snowflake leftist. If Nobody likes Bernie so what. Nobody means the absence of anybody or somebody or everybody. Therefore we should put things in proper context.

    If nobody likes Bernie then – somebody an unproven quantity unlike nobody – or anybody could like Bernie but probably not the predicament of Clinton where everybody not liking Hillary is possible but not likely,

    But it was a quote that in essence makes it unlikely that illiterate Clinton is liked at all although there is always Schiff, Pelosi and Schumer. Why is that important. Can you think of three more likely nobodies besides Clinton?

    Start with The Squat. the four nobodies who became Representatives without qualifying.

    1. “Typical illiterate snowflake leftist.” writes the idiot who is unaware that a sentence requires a verb. The term leftist is a dead give-away, comrade, please report to remedial slurring.

      1. Tony – you fail to realize that “snowflake leftist” is redundant. Also, “typical illiterate snowflake leftist” is a descriptor and does not need to be part of a complete sentence. You use the same thing every day. “Stop sign!” falls into the same category.
