Are the Dems ever going to stop whining about the most devastatingly horrible event of the 21st century, er, Hillary’s election loss?
But I think I will watch the HBO special on this. Popcorn time 🙂
Via Free Beacon.
Samantha Power threw a 2016 election-night party for the other 37 female United Nations ambassadors expecting to see Hillary Clinton elected the first female U.S. president, only for the bash to end in despair, she revealed in a new interview.
“I’ve had a lot of bad ideas in my life, but none as immortalized as this one,” Power told Politico‘s Susan Glasser in a joint interviewwith former top Barack Obama aide Ben Rhodes.
HBO captured the party’s evolution from glee to sadness as part of its new documentary from Greg Barker, “The Final Year.” Rhodes and Power are two of the stars of the film’s behind-the-scenes access to Obama’s last year in office….
“I thought what an amazing night for them. I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates a whole new sense of possibility for people everywhere,” she said.
Among the invitees were also feminist writer Gloria Steinem and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. So confident was Power, she said she was afraid Clinton’s victory would be called too early in the night….
Power said she’s haunted by the film catching her then-four-year-old daughter lying like a statue in her mother’s arms as the election is called for Trump.
“I think that scene moves viewers the most because it triggers, I think, a kind of post-traumatic stress about their own election night experience, which mirrored mine,” Power said.
