Inquiring minds wanna know: What prompted Hillary’s change of heart on TPP? Well, initially, this is what she went with:
“What I know about it, as of today, I am not in favor of what I have learned about it,” the former secretary of state said in an interview with PBS News Hour. “I don’t believe it’s going to meet the high bar I have set.”
But let’s face it: That’s a B.S. explanation. We know it, and she knows it. So she ultimately went with something much more solid:
Hillary Clinton clarifies that she can't support the Pacific trade deal because the Republicans "have weakened U.S. competitiveness."

We have to laugh so we don’t punch our fists through the wall.
@NKingofDC Huhhhhhh? How did the Republicans, who don't control the WH, managed to do that? And how would it affect her opinion of TPP?

@NKingofDC Um, yeah… who is in the white house and controlled Congress again?

@NKingofDC She should just admit that she can't remember what her position was. She gets confused. I get it.

@NKingofDC Huh? My neck is sore with whiplash from watching her dance on this issue.

Join the club. Hillary is absolutely — and painfully — exhausting.
