The Knives are out in politics apparently, and they are sticking in Hillary Clinton’s back.
After Donna Brazile’s revelations about the stacked deck that outdid Bernie Sanders’ chances at the Democratic nominations, after 2020 possible contender Senator Elizabeth Warren admission that Ms Clinton shouldn’t return to the forefront of the Democratic party in 2020, and after the current President teasing her in a tweet last week that he hoped she would compete against him in 2020, today another major politician asked Hillary to get over her loss of 2016 and just live her life again.
His name is John McCain and though we here are not usually fans of the man as he is for our taste a bit too critical of our current President Trump, we feel we couldn’t let this beauty slide.
In a long readout interview with Esquire magazine over the weekend, in which he discussed a wide range of details from his past over to his family life and, of course, his current health status, the interviewer arrived at Hillary Clinton at a certain point, and enquired Mr McCain about her book ‘What Happened’, in which she tried to explain why she lost the election in 2016, just like McCain lost an election in 2008.
John McCain: “You’ve got to understand that you can’t rewrite history. One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ‘I did the right thing! I did!’ The hardest thing to do is to just shut up.”
“Listen, my own campaign manager was part of a book that trashed me. Steve Schmidt was one of the big contributors to Game Change.”
According to Mr McCain, Hillary’s biggest mistake was writing the memoir so quickly instead of reflecting a bit at first: “What’s the fucking point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on. This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”
