When Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, Hillary Clinton suffered a huge loss. This was the second time that she has sought out the office of the presidency and failed miserably. First, she lost to Barack Obama.

The second time she was still unable to succeed — even when her opponent was someone as ill equipped for the presidency as Donald Trump.

Essentially, Hillary Clinton has had pretty bad luck when it comes to running for president. She served as Secretary of State under the Obama Administration, and as First Lady when her husband Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas, and when he became president of the United States. Based on her previous experience in politics, and the fact that she has a law degree from an Ivy League school, it is puzzling to understand why she wasn’t elected over Donald Trump.

Well, even Hillary herself had to work through the factors and events that led up to her losing the election, so she wrote a book entitled What Happened, which essentially chronicles the reasons why she lost the election.

However, Senator John McCain, a Republican from Arizona, doesn’t approve of Hillary’s most recent memoir. He criticized Hillary, saying that it was too soon after the election for her to release an explanation justifying her loss. Hillary released What Happened only 10 months after she lost to President Trump. McCain commented on Hillary’s new memoir according to Esquire, saying:

‘One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: “I did the right thing! I did!”’

In response to Hillary’s memoir, McCain also said:

‘History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on. This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.’

“The hardest thing to do is to just shut up,” he said.

Hillary recounted the feeling of losing the election in her memoir, saying:

‘Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me and I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down, but I did. I couldn’t get the job done and I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life. In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list.’

While the Mueller investigation trying to expose all of the details of the 2016 election, America may never know exactly “what happened” to cause Donald Trump to win the White House.
