When the title of Hillary Clinton‘s new book debuted last night, it was ripe for roasting. The title,What Happened, sans question mark, comes around as Clinton lecturing America, rife with disdain for the folks she’s seemingly speaking to. But the right is proving precisely why her words are required using a newfound misogynistic assault nearly nine months after the election.
Through the campaign, Hillary Clinton was bashed because of her appearance, her demeanor, her physical health, and her mentalhealth. Plus it’s something that the best can’t get over, despite having bested Clinton for the White House.
The book announcement brought out theworst of misogynistic Twitter, as people continuedto attempt to beat down the candidate that they’d already beaten down.Many of the proposed titles refer to this Seth Rich murder conspiracy,the unsubstantiated theory that the Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered for leaking emails to WikiLeaks.

A whole lot of the proposed titles attacked her mental health using existing book titles.

That’s what happened.
