As everyone knows, Hillary Clinton’s latest book came out Tuesday, an event which has drawn Clinton back into the spotlight and is serving as perhaps the election night celebration she and her supporters never got to have.
Fans are in full revisionist mode, including Jessica Valenti, who contends Wednesday in Marie Claire that Clinton “is more of a president right now than Donald Trump will ever be.” On that point we agree 100 percent — or would, if the president’s job were solely to shift personal responsibility to every other person (Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, James Comey), place (Wisconsin, middle America), and/or thing (WikiLeaks, sexism) on earth.

I can't put into words how very delusional that headline is. https://t.co/Pf2IUrdqeg

Technically…no. And really that's all that matters. https://t.co/eiDJ3Bxw4x

We’ll let readers click on over to Marie Claire if they want to soak up all five reasons why Hillary Clinton is more president than Trump will ever be, but here’s a spoiler. According to Valenti, Clinton “focuses on helping the victims of natural disasters as opposed to bragging about how big the storms are.”
Never mind that Trump has been on top of the rescue and relief efforts (something Valenti doesn’t mention); his wife wore heels on Marine One before visiting Texas, and his personal $1 million donation to the relief effort probably won’t clear the bank. (No, she didn’t mention the donation either.)
“Clinton, on the other hand, was spreading the word on ways to help victims,” writes Valenti. Spreading the word? So presidential! Who else was taking time from a book launch to do that? What screams leadership like retreating to the woods and emerging only when yet another memoir needed a marketing push?
And look at Clinton signing those books, like she was Obama signing extra-constitutional executive orders and commutations on his way out the door! She IS president!
But she's not president. https://t.co/wLM91xNSe7

Except for one small teeny tiny point.
She isnt. At all. She lost. https://t.co/00UT1cI7au

Except for the pesky facts that he is president, and she lost both times she's run. https://t.co/MSwWJBtStw

Except for that whole part where she's not, you know, the President. FFS, at least my fanfic involves hot people having crazed sex. https://t.co/fi8IcxMz0W

We’ll at least give Peter Daou credit for keeping Verrit separate from his most explicit Hillary fan fiction … so far.
She's hawking autographs like a washed-up ballplayer at a card show, but yeah, run with that. https://t.co/HEwvbq8pBp

Going on a book tour and whining for 8 months straight is presidential as fuck. https://t.co/AulhochlJ9

Yeah, so noble to profit from the story of how you sucked at being likeable so much you handed your country over to a game show host. https://t.co/JPQh8k0yoj

I'm in a library right now, so I cannot literally laugh out loud.
If I could, I'd be like:

What BS. Instead of doing anything for hurricane victims she threw a tantrum about losing the election. Pathetic. https://t.co/XuVVlDIa1i

Apparently her delusion is contagious. Make sure to wear a surgical mask to those signings. https://t.co/CQE0ZowvQ2
