Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton revealed for the first-time Wednesday elements of her “victory speech” prepared for Election Night 2016; tearing-up while reading passages for her upcoming ‘Masterclass’ series.
“In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election,” Clinton says in the video.
“I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.”
“My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world,” she says. “Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, one.

“We will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone. Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.
“Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century. And for reaching for a unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.’ We met that challenge.”

HERE WE GO AGAIN: Hillary Blames ‘SEXIST’ and 'FRIGHTENED' Trump Voters for 2016 DEFEAT
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her non-stop excuses tour Monday night, telling a packed crowd that “sexism” and “misogyny” ultimately cost her the 2016 race for the White House.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at a Human Rights event in the nation’s capital when she lashed out at Trump supporters for “going backwards,” saying GOP voters were “frightened” and “feeling insecure” about the future of the country.
“I see [the election] as a reaction that is driven by lots of different motives, some of them having to do with people feeling insecure, frightened, disappointed, discouraged […] about their lives and the ongoing globalization of the economy.”
“Any of you who’ve read my book about what happened know that I think misogyny and sexism was part of that campaign, it was one of the contributing factors,” said Clinton.
“Some of it was old-fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women -and certainly the equality of women’s leadership- and some of it as an outgrowth of all of this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats,” she added.

KNIVES OUT: Hillary Blasts Joe Biden in New Book
Another excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir surfaced on social media Wednesday, showing the doomed Presidential nominee lashing-out at Joe Biden; blasting the former Vice President for saying her campaign didn’t focus on the middle class.
Clinton set her sights on Biden for his harsh criticism of her campaign in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, saying she lacked a central economic message that appealed to the American middle class.
“Joe Biden said the Democratic Party in 2016 ‘did not talk about what it always stood for — and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class,'” Clinton writes.
“I find this fairly remarkable, considering that Joe himself campaigned for me all over the Midwest and talked plenty about the middle class,” she adds.
Earlier this year, Biden slammed Clinton for her lackluster campaign, asking, “How much did we hear about that guy making 50,000 bucks on an assembly line, the woman […] making $28,000 as a hostess?”
Biden isn’t the only prominent democrat attacked by Clinton. Other excerpts from “What Happened” show the former Secretary of State lashing-out at Sen. Bernie Sanders, calling his supporters “sexist” and claiming he helped “pave the way” for Trump’s surprise victory.
