Hillary Clinton gets attention when she sneezes, so with a book coming out — and one that attempts to explain “What Happened” in the astounding 2016 presidential election — Clinton’s gonna get some feedback.
So far the top two candidates for best “chime in” on Clinton’s book are late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel and Clinton’s erstwhile rival Bernie Sanders. Here are the two succinct comments that together seem to sum up what a lot of people think about Clinton’s book.
Sanders, accused in the book of doing “lasting damage” to Clinton during a long primary campaign, told Stephen Colbert: “Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country and she lost and she was upset about it and I understand that,” the senator said. “But our job is really not to go backwards. It is to go forwards.”
Kimmel struck the same note about not wanting to go back when he said: “I was just thinking to myself this morning, ‘I would love to relive that magical election of 2016. It’s like reading a book about why the Titanic sank while you’re sitting at the bottom of the ocean.”
