Watch Hillary Clinton Cry As She Reads Her Would-Be 2016 Victory Speech


Hillary is still bitter.

Hillary is teaching a “MasterClass” online.

Apparently, she is teaching us the “power of resilience.”

There is only one problem.

She doesn’t appear to be resilient.

In fact, Hillary appears to be the opposite: bitter.

Very, very bitter that she lost to Donald Trump.

During the MasterClass, she read her would-be 2016 victory speech that she never gave.

And halfway through, she began crying.

Her voice got high pitched…

And she had to grab her chest.

Watch below:

Here’s the oddest part.

Hillary appears to be proud that she cried.

In fact, she appeared on NBC after the fact to talk about how she cried.

This has led people to question whether she was crying for real…

Or whether she was faking it with crocodile tears.

Here’s her promo on NBC:

Hillary is now promoting it on her own verified Twitter account:

The Daily Mail described it as a “break down”:

Not bitter then, Hillary? Clinton breaks down in TEARS as she gives cringeworthy reading of the 2016 victory speech she wrote about becoming the first female president.

Hillary Clinton has for the first time revealed the victory speech she would have given had she won in 2016, and admitted she did not even bother to write a concession speech.

Democrats were blindsided by former President Trump’s win that year and Clinton spent much time blaming Russian interference for her loss.

The former nominee, who earlier this year boldly declared she would ‘never get out of the game of politics,’ proved she has not gotten over her loss as she shared the speech with NBC’s new Masterclass streaming platform, which features lessons from ‘luminaries from all walks of life.’

‘In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election,’ Clinton says in the video before launching into the speech.

‘I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.’

‘My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world,’ she begins, sharing what she would have read to the world. ‘Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, one.’

‘We will not be defined only by our differences,’ Clinton continues in the speech. ‘We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone. Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.’

‘Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century. And for reaching for a unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.’ We met that challenge.’

On November 13, 2016, Clinton’s public concession occurred more than 9 hours after the results of the election were known. Her staff at the time never replied to queries about why she didn’t come out Tuesday night, when supporters were already gathered for an election watch party.

‘I didn’t, as you know, write a concession speech,’ Clinton said to NBC’s Willie Geist. ‘Even though we had a lot of bumps these last 10 days I thought we could pull it out.’

Clinton expressed disappointment when she finally addressed the loss to a crowd of supporters from a New York City hotel.

We can’t imagine President Trump crying.

First of all, because he is a WINNER.

Second of all, because he is strong.

And he knows that if he cried publicly, people would mock him and foreign leaders would see him as weak.

The fact that Hillary stooped so low appears to suggest that she will never run for president again.

Because she knows that her reputation and worldwide respect is permanently damaged.

Perhaps Hillary’s masterclass should have been on crying!

Below is a transcript courtesy of The Hill:

“My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world: Our values endure, our democracy stands strong and our motto remains ‘e pluribus unum,’ out of many one,” Clinton, 74, says.

“You will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an ‘us versus them’ country. The American dream is big enough for everyone,”

“Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century and by reaching for unity, decency and what President Lincoln called the better angels of our nature, we met that challenge,” Clinton says, reading the never-was speech from an armchair.

She notes the historic nature of a scenario in which she had won and become the country’s first woman president: “Today, with your children on your shoulders, neighbors at your side, friends old and new standing as one, you renewed our democracy. And because of the honor you have given me, you changed its face forever.”

Clinton chokes up while speaking of her mother, and the hardships she endured. The former first lady and secretary of State says her mother, Dorothy Rodham, was abandoned by her parents and put on a train to California when she was 8 years old.

“I think about my mother every day,” says before her voice cracks, and she pauses before continuing in tears. “I wish I could walk down the aisle and find the little wooden seats where she sat, holding tight to her even younger sister, alone, terrified. She doesn’t yet know how much she will suffer. She doesn’t yet know she will find the strength to escape that suffering — that is still a long way off.”

Rodham died in 2011.

“In a country divided by race and religion, class and culture, and often paralyzing partisanship, a broad coalition of Americans embraced a shared vision of a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America,” Clinton says.

“An America where women are respected and immigrants are welcomed, where veterans are honored, parents are supported, and workers are paid fairly. An America where we believe in science, where we look beyond people’s disabilities and see their possibilities, where marriage is a right and discrimination is wrong no matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, or who you love.”

“We all have a role to play in our great American story,” Clinton says. “And yes, that absolutely includes everyone who voted for other candidates or who didn’t vote at all.”
