The release of Hillary Clinton’s book, “What Happened” where she blames everyone but herself for the loss of the 2016 Presidential election is embroiled in controversy once again. After the release of the book, the reviews people were leaving on Amazon were brutal, so the folks at Amazon decided to remove almost all the negative reviews for Hillary Clinton’s new book.
The folks at Amazon have said the publisher, Simon and Schuster had Amazon remove the reviews, 900 in total, because Simon and Schuster said those people supposedly did not buy “What Happened.” The problem is, Simon and Schuster have no conclusive way to prove these 900 people did not buy the book. The more likely explanation is that these negative reviews will significantly impact future sales, and the publisher was playing games with the reviews customers were leaving. Jonathan Karp, a representative from Simon and Schuster ignorantly stated, “It’s highly unlikely that approximately 1,500 people read Hillary Clinton’s book overnight and came to the stark conclusion that it is either brilliant or awful.” Going by this statement, it seems the publisher does not think much of their customers.
According to the numbers, approximately 581 reviews were left on Amazon, with 95% of the reviews being 5 stars. In response to these 900 reviews being removed, Amazon released a statement saying, “We have mechanisms in place to ensure that the voices of many do not drown out the voices of a few. … We remove customer reviews that violate our Community Guidelines.” Adding fuel to the fake fire Amazon is creating to make “What Happened” seem like a success, they have the book listed as a top seller with an average customer rating of 4.8 stars.
The removal of these reviews and the seemingly biased behavior displayed by Amazon to prop up Hillary Clinton’s book comes after her spiritual advisor during the 2016 Presidential election was busted for plagiarizing his book about his communications with Hillary Clinton. The Reverend Bill Shillady plagiarized parts of his book entitled “Strong for a Moment Like This,” detailing daily devotionals and prayers he sent to Hillary Clinton. The only issue was that the good Reverend plagiarized a well-known Pastor in Indiana by the name of Matt Deuel. Reverend Bill Shillady gave some poor excuse for his theft, basically saying he was shocked, and that it was an accident. Well, his publisher was not buying it, and had the book completely removed from shelves. Chelsea Clinton has also been accused of plagiarizing her book as well. A writer is suing the former first daughter for $150,000 claiming she stole his idea for the book. It seems that no matter where Hillary Clinton goes, dishonesty and corruption follows her, yet she is not to blame for losing the 2016 Presidential election.
“What Happened” by Hillary Clinton has not been received well, and it is entirely plausible the glowing five-star reviews on Amazon are the fake ones. It is well established that Hillary Clinton has a history of lying and presenting her version of the truth. Everything from her claiming she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured server, to her saying she has been consistent on issues, and even her statements regarding the motive behind the attack on the Embassy in Benghazi, are all lies. Hillary Clinton lost the election because she was careless, compromised national security lied, and was under FBI investigation.
Hillary Clinton lost the election because of Hillary Clinton and her sordid past. She has condoned the way her husband Bill Clinton has accosted women; she has defended a child rapist, and during the 2016 Presidential election insulted a whole group of Donald Trump supporters by calling them deplorable. What is deplorable is the fact that Hillary Clinton is not in jail alongside her husband.
Amazon and the book’s publisher, Simon and Schuster have not made any additional statements past what they have released, but plenty of folks are skeptical of the explanations given for the removal of these negative reviews. If Hillary Clinton wants to know why she lost the election, she should look in the mirror. The American people saw her for what she is and chose a true leader rather than a morally bankrupt politician who would have sold America down the river to the highest bidder.
