Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts ‘reckless attacks’ in Clinton book
Sarah Huckabee Sanders threw the book at Hillary Clinton’s new memoir.
“I think it’s sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost, the last chapter of her public life is going to be defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks,” the White House Press Secretary said of Clinton’s book, “What Happened.”
Huckabee Sanders added she’s “not sure” whether President Trump intended to read Clinton’s tell-all on her failed 2016 campaign, but told reporters during a briefing Tuesday that he has very little need to do so.
“I would think that he is pretty well versed on what happened, and I think it’s pretty clear to all of America,” she said.
In “What Happened,” which hit bookshelves Tuesday, Clinton remembers how her “skin crawled” while Trump loomed over her during the second presidential debate and shares other anecdotes from the campaign trail to the fateful night she learned she lost the election.
She also places blame on those who she feels stymied her White House bid, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, former FBI Director James Comey and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

By late Tuesday afternoon, the memoir had already nabbed a top spot on Amazon’s best seller list.
