Bombshell About How Hillary Groveled To Obama The Night Of The Election Just Dropped

A new book coming out entitled 'Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign' reveals some behind-the-scenes drama happening on the night of her crushing election defeat. According to the authors, political journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, Clinton was confident going into the election, but as the events unfolded the tension, anxiety and resignation set in.

The book, which was released this month, reveals conversations between former President Barack Obama and the Democratic presidential nominee. According to the authors, Mr. Obama called Clinton on election night as the electoral maps were turning red and he urged her to concede.

Clinton was full of anxiety by then, watching years of hard work go down the drain. With so many polls (many of them biased polls from liberal media sources, that mostly interviewed Democrats), Clinton was sure she would clinch the win. She hadn't caught the scent in the wind, but some had.

Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had warned his wife and the Democratic party not to underestimate 'the significance of Brexit'. A Clinton adviser had passed on a memo telling her that she 'should not underestimate [Donald Trump's] capacity to draw people to the polls who normally do not vote'.

The concession came as a shocking blow to Clinton and her anger welled when she called Trump to offer him congratulations. "I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means your success as president," she reportedly told him.

Later that night, another call from Obama came into console Clinton. She apologized to her fellow Democrat for her defeat, and felt that she had 'let her country down'.

"Obama’s legacy and her dreams of the Presidency lay shattered at Donald Trump’s feet. This was on her. Reluctantly she rose from her seat and took the phone," the book reads. "'Mr. President’, she said softly. ‘I’m sorry’."

The book claims to reveal much of what was going on during the election that has potentially changed the course of America.
