Hillary endorses online platform for her voters, because she won’t just go away.
Karl Marx had Hillary ppegged: History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.
The Hillary tragedy was decades in the making (Bill philandering, Obama crushing her), culminating in the tragedy of the 2016 election where she lost despite having more votes and despite the entire mainstream media pushing for her. She also lost to the guy who had no chance of winning.
Now Hillary is repeating her humiliation. No, not the book, which is so mocked that even Trump retweeted this image:
The farce of the day is Hillary’s endorsement of the new website Verrit, billed as the website for the 65 million Hillary voters:
What is Verrit (as opposed to Ferret)?
Gizmodo explains, No One Asked for Verrit, but Here We Are:
On Sunday evening, former secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton endorsed Verrit, a “media platform for the 65.8 million” who supported her candidacy, immediately creating a minor Twitter firestorm.
Clinton’s decision to hawk Verrit is regrettable for a number of reasons, including that this site looks like a terrible bet in an already over-saturated media economy which is shedding platforms and publishers left and right.
Verrit’s underlying concept is simple: Users are able to package quotes, factoids and other bits of text into easily shareable social media cards. The cards come with a seven-digit authentication code which can be verified on the website, supposedly ensuring social media users will be able to check to see the information contained within is accurate.
Wow, that sounds exciting. Almost as exciting as Hillary’s frequent Wisconsin rallies.
Who is behind Verrit? A die-hard Hillary booster, Peter Daou. Mediaite explains:
First off, the 65.8 million is a reference to how many votes Clinton received in the 2016 election.
The Verrit Twitter account describes the site as “media for the 65.8 million” as well.
Verrit was set up by Peter and Leela Daou. Peter Daou is a former Clinton adviser who has been incredibly vocal on Twitter since the election. After Clinton’s endorsement, Daou explained what Verrit is and who its audience is, saying that “Hillary Clinton’s voters… are unrepresented in the media” ….
Hillary supporters were unrepresented in the media? HILLARY SUPPORTERS WERE THE MEDIA:
Verrit seems like farce. Because tragedy already happened. The only thing that could make this better is if Hillary ran again.DONATE
