Readers plowing their way through Hillary Clinton’s book, “What Happened,” have been generous in posting some of the best bits on social media. Though some details, like Clinton’s alternate-nostril breathing technique, need to be seen to be believed, others are shocking enough in print.
As Twitchy reported, one passage highlighted by readers told the story of dozens of women who have approached Clinton since November to apologize for not voting … women “looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give.” No, Clinton cannot and will not absolve them of their guilt; everyone has to live with the consequences of their actions, she concludes.
Seeing as she’s still walking free, there’s a lot Clinton doesn’t know about facing consequences for one’s actions, but if anyone thought that passage was maybe just a quick burst of anger that made it past the editing phase, Clinton was ready and willing to repeat it in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Wednesday night.
No absolution from Hillary Clinton for voters who regret not voting in 2016 presidential election https://t.co/0NVhtcXr1i

If you didn't vote. You don't deserve forgiveness. https://t.co/PS91j3FQAA

Me either. I'm not forgiving anyone. I get angrier every day at the way she was railroaded. https://t.co/u8LILSW5WC

Damned right! Given the oft-repeated, clearly-high stakes, EVERY voter who threw a tantrum or "sent a msg" deserves to feel like shit https://t.co/lJas0qThBt

We wonder if anyone who lives on Clinton’s little planet with her has tried telling her that there are people who didn’t want her to president, voted against her, and aren’t looking for “absolution” from the losing candidate? Rumor has it some people are downright giddy she lost.
Anderson Cooper asked Clinton if she gives "absolution" to women who didn't vote for her, she replies "no."

She should ask for absolution from the parents of the men killed in Benghazi

1. Didn't know women needed absolution for voting their conscience
2. Didn't know Clinton had the power to absolve sins even if #1 were true https://t.co/vLuNBgWMHZ

She's not God; she cannot give absolution. Although with her narcissism, she may think she can.

So because I sit to pee I had to vote for her?
Fuck you lady. https://t.co/HywvOJDMEd

If I had a time machine, I'd go back and not vote for her all over again. https://t.co/fN4QpDKDKm

And the mic drop:
Thinking any voter needs her absolution is the best example she was the worst candidate possible. https://t.co/8ctwxscS2I
