The Destruction Of Hillary Clinton

Jan 9, 2018

The new book, "The Destruction of Hillary Clinton" looks to answer the question many have been asking: How did an extraordinarily well-qualified, experienced, and admired candidate - whose victory would have been as historic as Barack Obama's - come to be seen as a tool of the establishment, a chronic liar, and a talentless politician?

In her narrative of the 2016 campaign year and the events that led up to it, Susan Bordo unpacks the Rights' assault on Clinton and her reputation, the way the left provoked suspicion and indifference among the youth vote, the inescapable presence of James Comey, questions about Russian influence, and the media's malpractice in covering the candidate.

Susan Bordo is a media critic, cultural historian, and feminist scholar. She is Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Kentucky.
