When we look back at the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, it’s tough to not remember all the controversies, leaks, missteps, insults, lies, half-truths and skeletons flying out of closets. It certainly wasn’t pretty, but when the dust settled, Republican candidate Donald Trump won the presidency. Thus, democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and her supporters were left to ponder what happened.
Clinton will attempt to explain what went wrong in her forthcoming book, “What Happened,” along with an accompanying speaking tour. Clinton will appear in Toronto (September 28), Montreal (October 23), Vancouver (December 13) and various cities across America.
“‘What Happened’ is Hillary Clinton’s most personal memoir yet. For the first time, Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history,” read an official description of the book.
It continued: “Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. She describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterwards.”
“What Happened” made headlines recently, as an excerpt from the book showed Clinton referring to Trump as a “creep” for standing closely behind her at the second Presidential debate.
The Trump presidency has left many wondering what’s next. The implications for Canada are enormous. What will this mean for NAFTA? Immigration? Climate Change? Host Marissa Semkiw and “theZoomer” panel recently debated the outcome of the U.S. Presidential Election. You can watch this episode below.
