"What"s The Fucking Point?" John McCain Says Hillary Clinton Should Stop Talking About Her Election Loss — Read His Sharp Words!

John McCain might not know exactly what happened in the 2016 election, but he doesn't need Hillary Clinton to keep explaining it. In a new interview with Esquire, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee critiqued Clinton's recent campaign memoir What Happened, in which she relives and reflects on her stunning loss to Donald Trump.

In a new interview with Esquire, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee critiqued Clinton's recent campaign memoir What Happened, in which she relives and reflects on her stunning loss to Donald Trump. Related: Susan Sarandon Thinks We'd Be 'At War' If Hillary Was President! Knowing a thing or two about losing to a presidential election, McCain had some sound advice for his fellow unvictorious nominee: to "just shut up" about her loss already! Advising HRC to go against the "irresistible" impulse to justify her campaign strategies and performance, McCain said: "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." OK, but losing to Barack Obama is quite different than losing to an orange toilet. For that reason alone, Hillary has been shamelessly pointing fingers as to who's responsible for President Trump (the Russians and Susan Sarandon, obvi). Related: Bill Clinton About To Face Allegations From Four More Women! However, McCain thinks she should be focused on moving forward instead of rehashing the past. He added: "What's the fucking point? Keep the fight up? You've got to move on." Sure, it's one thing to sit there and feel sorry for yourself, but Clinton voters need some explanation as to why she isn't running the country, right? And you can purchase that explanation on your Kindle for just $14.99! Do YOU think Hillary should move past the election?? [Image via NBC/WENN.].....»»

Hillary Clinton: "I Am Done With Being A Candidate"

Maybe it's not much of a surprise considering her age, but Hillary Clinton is done being a politician.

The would-have-been President of the United States spoke to TV host Jane Pauley on CBS Sunday Morning and confirmed that, yes, it's all over -- at least as an active candidate. Related: Kellyanne Conway Is A Fan Of Hillary Clinton?! On the morning talk show, Pauley jumped right into the question, asking Mrs. Clinton (below): "Is your political career over?" And without hesitating or hedging, Clinton responded: "Yes. As an active politician, it's over. I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake." Of course, this all comes just days before her book, What Happened, is fully released, detailing exactly what went down during the 2016 presidential election. And while Clinton would have undoubtedly made a better President than Donald Trump, here we are... with Clinton now out of politics and Trump firmly fucking everything up from the Oval Office. Sigh. Related: Mike Pence Addresses Claims He's Running For President In 2020 At least Clinton did take one more good shot at Trump during the interview, saying later to Pauley (below): "We have a reality show that leads to the election of a president. He ends up in the Oval Office. He says, 'Boy, it's so much harder than I thought it would be. This is really tough. I had no idea.' Well, yeah, because it's not a show. It's real. It's reality for sure." Love it!! Would've loved to have had you as our leader, Mrs. Clinton... [Image via Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Susan Sarandon Thinks "We Would Be At War" If "Very Dangerous" Hillary Clinton Was President!

Susan Sarandon has been accused of being partly responsible for electing Donald Trump as president — and apparently she doesn't regret it one bit! Because while the actress isn't particularly impressed with our new POTUS' performance in Office, she still doesn't think Trump was necessarily the greater of the two evils in the 2016 presidential election. Related: [...] Susan Sarandon has been accused of being partly responsible for electing Donald Trump as president -- and apparently she doesn't regret it one bit! Because while the actress isn't particularly impressed with our new POTUS' performance in Office, she still doesn't think Trump was necessarily the greater of the two evils in the 2016 presidential election. Related: Trump Declares Himself The 'Favorite' President The 71-year-old admitted she hasn't "exactly" said that Hillary Clinton was more dangerous in the long-run than Trump, but she does believe the former Democratic nominee would have the country at war had she won the election. When asked by The Guardian if she really said that HRC was the more dangerous nominee, Sarandon clarified: "Not exactly, but I don't mind that quote. I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn't be much smoother. Look what happened under Obama that we didn't notice." Huh. We don't think Hillary would try to instigate Kim Jong-Un into launching a nuclear attack via Twitter name calling. But maybe we're just biased? Due to her vocal non-endorsement of Hillary, the actress -- a Bernie Sanders supporter who voted for Jill Stein in the general election -- says she continues to get flack from the left even while standing with them on select issues. Video: Chris Cuomo Couldn't Care LESS About The Royal Engagement! When Sarandon announced she stands with Dreamers earlier this year, she says she received backlash from leftist critics who blamed her for the very predicament she was speaking out against. While she's "flattered" her haters think she single-handedly gave Trump the presidency, the Feud star says that finger-pointing mentality is exactly why the DNC is in the shitter. She added: "That's why we're going to lose again if we depend on the DNC [the Democratic National Committee], because the amount of denial. I mean it's very flattering to think that I, on my own, cost the election. That my little voice was the deciding factor." So what was the deciding factor for Trump winning the election? Well, that's what Sarandon says we need to start examining: "People are really hurting; that's how this guy got in. What we should be discussing is not the election, but how we got to the point where Trump was the answer… you can't judge by the mainstream media what's going on in the country. How did we lose all our journalists and media?" She certainly raises a lot of interesting questions. Head to The Guardian to read Sarandon's full interview, where she talks more about politics and her thoughts on Hollywood's sexual harassment scandal.

Hillary Clinton Draws Comparisons Between Harvey Weinstein & "Admitted Sexual Assaulter" Donald Trump

We're sure Hillary Clinton haters are going to put her on blast for this.

On Friday, the former Secretary of State sat down with BBC's Andrew Marr to promote her book about losing the presidential election, titled What Happened. Unsurprisingly, the interview took a turn away from the contents of the book and towards pressing current topics. Related: Quentin Tarantino Breaks His Silence On Weinstein's Scandal! Specifically, Marr asked the once Presidential hopeful to weigh in on the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal as the disgraced Hollywood heavyweight has donated thousands to her various campaigns. Hillary doubled down on her denouncement of Weinstein as she told Marr: "I was really shocked and appalled because I've known him through politics as many Democrats have. He's been a supporter - he's been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States. So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking. And I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories." Beautifully said. Sadly, Secretary Clinton misspoke as she continued her train of thought: "I think it's important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories about his behavior but that we recognize this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it's in entertainment, politics... after all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office... There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic." So close to being a perfect statement. Obviously, the 69-year-old politician is referring to Donald Trump's Access Hollywood tape scandal. In case you forgot, during the presidential campaign, the Trumpster was heard boasting about grabbing women "by the pussy" in footage from 2005. While POTUS has admitted to participating in "locker room talk," he has never -- on the record, at least -- admitted to committing sexual misconduct. His off-the-record language, however, was still highly disturbing and promoted the idea that sexual assault is all okay in good fun. UGH. Related: Minka Kelly A Gross Story About Weinstein! Hillary laid into Trump once more as, after skillfully dancing around questions about her husband Bill Clinton's own sex scandal, she added: "That was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past. It is something that has to be taken seriously, for anyone not just in entertainment... The really sad part of the campaign was how this horrific tape, what he said about women in the past what he said about women during the campaign, was discounted by a lot of voters." So shady -- and we LOVES it. Nonetheless, Clinton avoided making any additional comparisons between Trump and Weinstein as she refused to answer if the two businessmen were "the same kind of person." She noted: "I'm not a psychologist, I can't draw that conclusion. There are credible reports from women about both that sound very similar." Good save, doll! Unfortunately, Hillary isn't finished with this Weinstein drama as there's some confusion over what she'll do with the money donated to her campaign fund. While the former Senator previously stated that she planned on giving the funds to charity, she recently told Channel 4 that she now plans to give the estimated "$16,000" back to Harvey. Hey, as long as she doesn't keep it, we're cool with whatever she chooses. Be sure to watch Hillary's sit down with Andrew for yourself (below). [Image via WENN/BBC News/YouTube.].....»»

The Five Best Quotes From Hillary Clinton"s New Memoir

Hillary Clinton might be done as a candidate, but she's not going anywhere.

In her new memoir What Happened, the 69-year-old politician opens up about the 2016 election and the factors that contributed to her devastating loss to Donald Trump for the presidency, from her perspective. Related: Kellyanne Conway Actually Had Nice Things To Say About Hillary Here are the best five highlights from the tell-all (below)! 1. On taking responsibility for losing the election: "I go back over my own shortcomings and the mistakes we made. I take responsibility for all of them. You can blame the data, blame the message, blame anything you want -- but I was the candidate." 2. On the controversial debate with Trump, where he was seen lurking behind her: "This is not okay, I thought. It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled ... It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, ‘Well, what would you do?' Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren't repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up, you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me, so back up.'" 3. On the Bernie Sanders wound: "He certainly shared my horror at the thought of Donald Trump becoming President, and I appreciated that he campaigned for me in the general election. But he isn't a Democrat -- that's not a smear, that's what he says. He didn't get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party. He was right that Democrats needed to strengthen our focus on working families and that there's always a danger of spending too much time courting donors because of our insane campaign finance system. He also engaged a lot of young people in the political process for the first time, which is extremely important...I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too." 4. On being disliked by so many people, for seemingly no reason: "What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I'm really asking. I'm at a loss. I think it's partly because I'm a woman." 5. On her controversial marriage to Bill Clinton: "There were times that I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive. But on those days, I asked myself the questions that mattered to me: Do I still love him? And can I still be in this marriage without becoming unrecognizable to myself -- twisted by anger, resentment, or remoteness? The answers were always yes." Will U be picking up a copy??

Bill Clinton Is About To Face Sexual Assault Allegations From Four More Women — Details HERE!

Bill Clinton is facing yet another sexual assault scandal as four women are allegedly prepared to tell their stories about the former President unless they reach substantial payouts. Apparently, four instances occurred after Hillary Clinton's husband left the White House in 2001 when the 71-year-old was hired by playboy billionaire investor, Ron Burkle, to work at his Yucaipa companies. Clinton would fly around the world with a bevy of women on Burkle's private jet, which was nicknamed "Air Fuck One." Details of the women's stories have not yet been released, but they are said to have been low-level employees of Burkle when they were in their late teens. Related: Hillary Clinton Draws Comparisons Between Harvey Weinstein & Donald Trump Legal reps for the women, who have remained anonymous, are considering filing individual lawsuits if the Clinton camp doesn't pay out. According to Clinton author Ed Klein, the former politician is aware of the new accusations with a rep saying: "Obviously, I'm aware of [the allegations] but can't talk about them." A Democratic Party official also said: "Bill is distraught at the thought of having to testify and defend himself against sex charges again. He hopes his legal team can somehow stop the women from filing charges and drag him through the mud." According to DailyMail.com, Hillary and Bill have been living separate lives for years and Bill even has a "love nest" in Little Rock, where he spends most of his time. No details surrounding the actual allegations have actually been released -- so it sounds like we'll just have to see how the Clinton team settles the suits. Honestly, we're not looking for another cover up. And we would appreciate Bill taking accountability for his actions and Hillary speaking out against her husband's behavior once and for all.

On Wednesday morning, Hillary Clinton shared an excerpt from the audiobook for her new memoir What Happened with MSNBC -- and the queen delivered, y'all! In the book published with Simon & Schuster, the first woman Presidential nominee for a major political party tried to make sense of her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Related: Chelsea Clinton Defends Barron Trump's Wardrobe! She penned: "I don't have all the answers and this isn't a comprehensive account of the 2016 race; that's not for me to write. I have too little distance and too great a stake in it. Instead, this is my story. I want to pull back the curtain on an experience that was exhilarating, joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling. Writing this wasn't easy. Every day that I was a candidate for President, I knew that millions of people were counting on me, and I couldn't bear the idea of letting them down, but I did. I couldn't get the job done. And I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life." *Sniff* The longtime politician and activist went on to explain the objective of telling her story: "In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they'd find a long list. I also capture some moments I want to remember forever, like when my tiny granddaughter raced into the room while I was practicing my convention speech, and what it was like hours later to step onstage to deliver that speech as the first woman ever nominated by a major political party for President of the United States." In another section of the book, Hillary remembered feeling uncomfortable when Trump lurked closely behind her during the October debate at Washington University in St. Louis -- just days after his pussy-grabbing comments surfaced. Clinton wrote: "'This is not OK,' I thought. It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now, we were on a small stage, and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck.

I know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me, so back up.'" She added: "I chose Option A. I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of difficult men trying to throw me off. I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard. I wonder, though, whether I should have chosen Option B. It certainly would have been better TV. Maybe I have over-learned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world."

Here"s George Clooney"s Mansplanation For Why Hillary Clinton Lost The 2016 Election

Someone send George Clooney a copy of What Happened, stat! In a new interview with Daily Beast, the 56-year-old actor — who hosted a campaign fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in April of 2016 — said the first woman in U.S. history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party didn't "elevate her game" enough [...] Someone send George Clooney a copy of What Happened, stat! In a new interview with Daily Beast, the 56-year-old actor -- who hosted a campaign fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in April of 2016 -- said the first woman in U.S. history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party didn't "elevate her game" enough to beat Donald Trump. Related: Hillary Claps Back At Trump's Book Criticism! When asked how he thinks Clinton will go down in history, the director responded by saying Hillary is "not as good at communicating things": "Hillary, for years and years and years, has been the presumptive nominee, and quite honestly, she was incredibly qualified for the job. But being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you're the right person to be president. Here's what I mean. She was more qualified than even her husband was when he was elected president, but she's not as good at communicating things. That's simply true. When she got up and gave a speech, it didn't soar. Now, that doesn't mean that she wouldn't have done a great job as president, and I supported her because by the time we did the fundraiser the primary was over at that point and it was time to get on with picking someone to move forward, and she was the right person to side with." He added: "It was frustrating because I never saw her elevate her game. I never saw it. And I had a lot of liberal friends who were like, 'She's not good at this.' And I see that, and I understand it." After four decades in public service and holding the titles of First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State -- we're left wondering what else HRC could have possibly done, other than be born a man? Even with the popular vote, she was beat by a reality star. Perhaps George, who also has zero political experience, would like to mansplain that as well. We will give him the benefit of the doubt and acknowledge his acknowledgement of the role sexism and misogyny played in the election, as weak as it was: "I also think, though, that if it was a guy it wouldn't have been so polarizing. I think the fact that she's a woman made it a much harder uphill battle. They've had the 'Arkansas Project' where for twenty-five years the Clintons have been accused of murdering Vince Foster and accused of tons of stuff, so I thought it was a raw deal. I think that she wasn't particularly good at articulating the things that she wanted to do, and unfortunately we live at a time right now where articulating what you want to do is more potent in the electorate than the other way around, obviously, when Trump only said he was going to 'Make America Great Again.' Don't you think the next Democrat who runs should just run with a blue hat that says, 'Make America Great Again?'" If your argument is that Hillary lost because "she wasn't particularly good at articulating the things that she wanted to do," how in the WORLD do you explain Trump's victory? We can't recall even one instance where POTUS gave an articulate answer regarding policy... ever! GOD, we are so sick of this shit. [Image via CBS/WENN.].....»»

Despite losing to Trump in the election, Clinton attended the inauguration as she’s a former First Lady. “I really tried to get out of going,” Hillary said on The Graham Norton Show, which aired on Friday (October 20). Hillary said that if any of the other former presidents and First Ladies weren’t attending, they could have used that as an excuse. “So we called the Bushes, and the elder Bushes were in the hospital, which I think was legitimate,” Clinton said. “Then we called the younger Bushes and they said, ‘yeah, we’re going,’ we called the Carters, and they said, ‘yeah, we’re going.’ So Bill and I looked at each other and said ‘well we got to go.’” Hillary Clinton Really Tried To Avoid Going to the Inauguration.....»»

Everybody has disappointments, and losses,” Hillary expressed. “You may not lose a presidential election, but you may lose somebody close to you. You may lose a job you want. There’s all kinds of challenges in life, and so I want not only individuals — and so many of them as they’re coming to my events are telling me that it has helped them — but I want our country to understand how resilient we are.” “We are such an extraordinary collection of people, and energy and all sorts of great potential,” Hillary continued. “And I don’t want people to get depressed, and worn out, and tired because they see things they disagree with that are contrary to who we are. There is something for everybody to do.” Hillary Clinton on Kate McKinnon & Alec Baldwin’s “Amazing” SNL Impressions Click inside to watch the rest of Hillary Clinton’s appearance on The Tonight Show… Hillary Clinton on Her Book What Happened and Using Twitter to Get Trump’s Attention Hillary Clinton Is Teaching Kids It Takes a Village with Her Children’s Book.....»»

As we previously reported, Clinton put his former What Not To Wear cohost on blast by revealing she had blocked him on Twitter. And, it seems the social media snub REALLY came out of nowhere for Kelly, as he is vehement that he has ZERO beef with London. Related: Kathy Griffin Releases Damning Letter About Andy Cohen While The Chew cohost already down played the drama by saying that the "tea is old," Clinton elaborated on the drama for Thursday's episode of the chat show. Amid giving backstory about the headline making online dramz, the 48-year-old dished: "It seems juicy, but it really isn't that juicy. It was like getting a little slap in the face – I was like, What is that all about? Why, and how, and when?" However, the thing that shocked Kelly most, was how people got so riled about the apparent falling out between the What Not To Wear alums. He continued: "I come back from the gym and my phone has blown up; I've got interview requests from People magazine, E!, Newsweek, CNN. The tea is, there ain't no tea. I literally don't know if she blocked me yesterday, or a year ago, a month ago … But I've got no beef with Stacy at all."

We mean, it's no secret the two had some tension on set during their tenure working together. Nonetheless, we're proud of Clinton for taking the high road. The ball is in your court, Stacy!

"American Horror Story: Cult" Is Not About Donald Trump Or Hillary Clinton

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is explaining that Cult really is not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, rather, about the aftermath of the election and how that affected people. “Our feeling is that everybody lost their sh*t after the election — Republican, Democrat — and everybody’s still losing their sh*t, and nobody’s really [...] American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is explaining that Cult really is not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, rather, about the aftermath of the election and how that affected people. “Our feeling is that everybody lost their sh*t after the election — Republican, Democrat — and everybody’s still losing their sh*t, and nobody’s really figured out from either side where to put those feelings,” Ryan told THR. “There is no real discussion. Everybody’s still at each other’s throats, you’re either on one side or you’re on the other. The season really is not about Trump, it’s not about Clinton. It’s about somebody who has the wherewithal to put their finger up in the wind and see that that’s what’s happening and is using that to rise up and form power, and using people’s vulnerabilities about how they’re afraid and don’t know where to turn, and they feel like the world is on fire.”  “People have the wrong idea already about what it’s going to be. People in the Rust Belt who have loved the show [are tweeting], ‘I’m out. I can’t believe that you’re tackling this.’ They don’t understand that every side on our show gets it just as much. The white privilege that Sarah and Alison['s characters] deal with is satirical as well,” he continued. “The world we’re living in is ridiculous. So, I think that the show, in some ways, is reflecting the idea that nothing makes sense, and the only way to get through it is to try and have some degree of humor about it.” The new season of American Horror Story debuts tonight on FX......»»

Kellyanne Conway Actually Had Nice Things To Say About Hillary Clinton To Her Three Young Daughters

We imagine it was pretty difficult for Kellyanne Conway to explain to her three young daughters why she wasn't supporting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election — and was instead campaigning for a self-proclaimed pussy grabber. Donald Trump's counselor is very proud of herself for climbing the ranks within the Republican party — even though most [...] We imagine it was pretty difficult for Kellyanne Conway to explain to her three young daughters why she wasn't supporting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election -- and was instead campaigning for a self-proclaimed pussy grabber. Donald Trump's counselor is very proud of herself for climbing the ranks within the Republican party -- even though most of the policies oppress women not in her position. Anyway, the campaign manager is featured in TIME's new Firsts video series profiling groundbreaking women, where she opened up about how she talked to her children about how she opposed but still "respected" the first female presidential nominee for a major party. Related: Mike Pence Addresses Claims He's Running For President In 2020 The mother-of-four explained: "In explaining how I feel about one thing that Donald Trump said or did to my daughters, I would be remiss in not revealing the full conversation, which is also why Mommy, who's a woman, did not support the first female presidential candidate for a major party ... I would tell them that I respect very much that Secretary Clinton was running for president, and it showed that in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it. At the same time, I tried to explain to them that you could be excited for someone with whom you disagree, and share in that moment in history as a proud American." Elsewhere in the interview, the pollster discussed how she made a name for herself in a party dominated by old white guys: "In Republican politics, particularly 20 some years ago, there were few women. There were few women consultants, there were few women candidates, there were certainly few women congressmen and office-holders. I'd walk into the RNC and I'd walk into other Republican political situations, which I have described as walking into the men's locker room at the Elks Club holding a bachelor party. My comfort level came in learning how to think like a man and to behave like a lady." Accepting this "locker room" culture clearly helped her get in Trump's good graces: "I'm so pleased that I have his ear and his trust as campaign manager, and now as I take on this role as counselor to the president — the highest ranking non-relative female in his White House." Sure. But are you on the right side of history?? [Image via TIME.].....»»

On Wednesday, Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos published a shocking blog post about the misuse of social media, specifically regarding alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election between the businessman and Hillary Clinton. After reviewing ad buys from June 2015 to May 2017, the company realized that roughly 3000 ads connected to 470 "inauthentic accounts" bought approximately $100,000 in ads. Related: Donald Trump Brings Us Closer To World War 3 Stamos concludes these fake news pages are "likely" linked to Russia! He wrote: "Our analysis suggests these accounts and Pages were affiliated with one another and likely operated out of Russia." While the fraudulent advertisements "didn't specifically reference the US presidential election, voting or a particular candidate," they "appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages" touching on topics such as LGBT rights, race issues, immigration, and gun control. The corporation also looked at ads that originated in Russia and found that 2,200 ads -- adding up to $50,000 -- were "potentially politically related." Facebook has shared this information with U.S. officials, and "will continue to work with them as necessary." Read the full post HERE! [Image via AEDT/WENN.].....»»
