    Well, I can't say that that is fake news because it's true. However, it is a great example of slanted reporting. A more fair and balanced way of stating that would be to say, "Hillary Clinton's new book, 'What happened' is outselling Stephen's book , 'It' which was first published 31 years ago and has sold untold millions of copies." Doesn't seem quite as impressive now, does it?

    lol - the phrase "grasping for straws" does come to mind. I'm waiting for the Cliff Notes version or her book, which, I'm told, will just have a picture of Donald. ;)

    I looked at reviews of "What Happened" on Amazon. Some people are saying that Amazon is deleting any negative reviews to make it look better. I can't say for sure but almost all I saw were rave reviews.

    It was reported in the news that Amazon had removed a large number of 1-star reviews and negative comments. I think the news report gave a number but I don't remember how many. In their defense, I am sure that the bulk of them were joke reviews from people who have never read the book, and never intend to. Still, they probably wouldn't have removed them for someone else.

    Reading her book would be akin to stirring the "dregs", an act which invariably releases more stink than was present while the vomitus lay dormant.

    I can say without a doubt that I would not spend our hard earned money on any book written by Hillary or Bill Clinton. Nor do I think I would even have much interest in reading them even if our Library stocks them. To many lies have come out of their mouths orally....I really don't think to much truth would come out in their written words either. Though I don't hate either of them...I do think they both have a problem with telling the truth and I'm just not interested in wading through any more of their lies orally or written in books.

    Being a limey I don't know much about Hillary, is this set of pictures a fair representation ?

    OMG you guys are bad! :)

    I did enjoy seeing Hillary Clinton on BookTV. I'm considering getting the book but I have another coming in from Amazon I want to read first.

    One of the KGO San Francisco talk show hosts (left leaning) stated he wasn't going to read it but decided to and it's better and different than what he expected.

    I did see several complaints that reviews were deleted on Amazon. I didn't look close enough to see if they were a "verified purchase"

    I don't hate her but I'm just not interested in her at all. I also don't hate Obama, just didn't vote for him and accepted that he was the President at the time...unlike those that constantly say Trump is not their president...yes he is wether you like it or not. :)

    I did check the book on Amazon and every 1 star review or reviewer that stated their 1 star review was deleted was a verified purchase. At least at the ones I looked at. I didn't go through them all. 6% are 1 star at this point.
