Hillary Clinton Told Campaign Aides That She Was Tired of Hearing About How ‘Nobody Likes’ Her

The main reason that Trump is now President is Hillary Clinton and her infamous “pied piper” strategy. They knew through polling that “nobody likes Hillary Clinton” so they tried to find SOMEONE she could beat. They coordinated with their MSM partners and others to elevate Trump, Cruz and Ben Carson and we all know what happened next.
I Googled to see what comes up when you search “Nobody Like Hillary” (intentionally without the “s”) – 5.8 million results starting with “Oprah Admits Nobody Likes Hillary Clinton.” But more to the motivation of today’s insane rantings from the bitter woman in yet another appropriately reptilian looking jacket:
Hillary Clinton was aware that she was having trouble connecting with voters. One of the biggest concerns was that Clinton just wasn’t a likable candidate. But according to a new book, around July 2016, right as President Donald Trump became the Republican nominee, Clinton stopped caring that people didn’t like her.
“A week earlier, she’d cut off [pollster] Joel [Benenson] and the pollster John Anzalone, as they walked her through the almost daily reminder that half the country disliked her,” Amy Chozick wrote in her new book on the Clinton campaign, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling, according to the Daily Beast, noting that the conversation had happened around the time of the Republican National Convention. “’You know, I am getting pretty tired of hearing about how nobody likes me,’ she said.”
Chozick noted that donors routinely asked how Clinton’s campaign “planned … to pull Hillary’s trust numbers out of the toilet,” writing that “the answer was always the same: nothing. [Clinton campaign Chairman John] Podesta would explain ‘I remember no one trusted Bill Clinton and he won twice.’”

half the country disliked her,
A lot of that half lived in Pennsylvania. I really don’t think that her visiting western PA would have made a difference.

That seems a bit generous. Half the people hated her and another 20% merely disliked her.

Even many of the people that voted for her in the general election disliked her.
Obama didn’t have a lot of third party voters during his elections but Trump & Clinton did which should be a clue instead of hating green party voters.

But that doesn’t matter, see? Chuck Schumer said the Dems would replace all those voters with moderate republicans! And you could repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.

This type of comment from Hillary is what I call the ‘reflexive insult.’ I have observed in many people that the most instinctive phrases they used to try to hurt others are the things that THEY found most hurtful when directed at them.

which makes me feel bad for her, to be in pain that won’t quit
if she’d only take some time off for reflection, but she just keeps doubling down & thus making people dislike her more. my image of her is of some comic book villain, brooding on her losses and scheming in her isolated tower
even W knew better. I still don’t like him, but he’s not a constant irritant & i actually liked some of his pictures. he got an honest hobby & is probably happier than he was before
I hope she will find real peace & join in actually making the world a better place

Nobody likes Hillary. Not even her husband….
I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

Bill while not trustworthy around women not his wife, *he was still at least likeable.
*at that time. Hindsight is 20/20. He was pretty sick and corrupt. But at least he didn’t start any major wars.

Bill was likeable only to those who had never met a con man before.

As cynical as I am I admit I was taken in by both Bill and Barack. At the time of there entering the scene they were both young, new, and different kind of presidential candidates. Bill did not look like a deer in the headlights when surrounded by Black people in a Black church. He could actually clap in time and play saxophone. Barack was smooth, hip, and intelligent. His oratory skills were top notch.
Compared to the Bob Doles and John McCains of that era who were the standard style politician of that time they were quite revolutionary.

She wasn’t just an unlikable candidate. She is an unlikable human being. A despicable, spiteful, hateful, nasty BITCH.
She’s just unlikable. Period. She has no redeeming qualities. None.
It’s hard to believe that I use to like her and her pervert husband. I wasted weeks of my life phone banking for that man. Turns my stomach to think about it.
I will never be bamboozled or Hoodwinked again.

Bernie Sanders’s Hard Fight for Hillary Clinton
That addendum, about Trump’s depiction of Mexicans and Muslims, is a reminder of why Sanders really isn’t joking; nor does he think that Trump is. One thing that Sanders saw, perhaps earlier than most people, is that Trump is both serious and dangerous. And he knows, from time spent with his own crowds, the strengths of the passions that Trump exploits when he talks about political corruption. Sanders is clearly outraged that a billionaire would try to be the spokesman for those grievances. It may also be that his historical perspective, which may give him too narrow a view in some areas, has left him distinctly well prepared to recognize the threat that Trump poses. Sanders does not treat a wealthy bully sowing divisions among the working class as a phenomenon entirely outside the tradition of our country’s politics—as the freak appearance of a buffoon. He does not look at Trump and wonder how someone so crass and demagogic could ever have disrupted the pageant of American society, which is and has always been great.
“I disagree with Donald Trump on virtually all of his policy positions,” Sanders said. “But what upsets me the most—what upsets me, it’s beyond disagreement—is we have struggled for so many years to overcome discrimination, and he is running his campaign, the cornerstone of which is bigotry. Now, as Americans we can disagree on many issues. But we have come too far—too many people have gone to jail, and too many have died in the struggle for equal rights. We are not going back to a bigoted society.”
Since conceding defeat in the primaries, Sanders has been one of the real champions of this campaign. He let his supporters yell at him and deride him as a sellout in bleak delegate breakfasts at the Democratic National Convention, in Philadelphia, as he endorsed Clinton and explained why they needed to do the same. He made getting support for her his priority, putting aside any subtle, undermining gestures that might have better preserved his rebel-rock-star status. He has kept doing so despite other revelations in the Podesta e-mails, ones that are not about him personally but about issues that he believes in—for example, about money in politics, as exemplified by the Clinton team’s nurturing of donors. And he has earned the right to negotiate hard on such issues in the future.
As Sanders finished his speech in Raleigh—“We have to do everything that we can to elect Secretary Clinton!”—Clinton and Pharrell were on their feet, cheering. “Wow!” Clinton said, when she took to the rostrum. “Whew! I gotta say, after hearing from these two extraordinary men, I feel all fired up and ready to go for the next five days!” She knew what it was like to run against Sanders. Having him on her side was “a lot more fun.” A few hours later, Sanders was off on his own to Iowa. Trump is ahead in that state, in the latest average of polls, by about two and a half points. Sanders had three events scheduled for Friday—Cedar Falls, Iowa City, Davenport. On Saturday, there would be more.

More and more, I’m thinking that we actually dodged a bullet by getting Trump for a president instead of her. Weird, huh?
