Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is vain, unapproachable, and conniving. Those are just some of the reasons she’s not president today. Now, Clinton thinks it was ‘karma’ that NBC host Matt Lauer was fired for sexual harassment due to being tough on her email scandal in 2016.
From Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton thinks that former NBC host Matt Lauer’s demise is “karma” for how he questioned her about her private email server during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Clinton was in Philadelphia on Thursday promoting her campaign memoir, What Happened, when she was asked about Lauer being fired this week over allegations of sexual misconduct, the Philly Voice reported. Lauer faced a storm of criticism last year when several journalists and commentators deemed his questioning of Clinton at a candidate forum unfair and even sexist.
“Every day I believe more in karma,” Clinton said of Lauer.

“The only way we will get sexism out of politics is to get more women in politics,” she added.
Lauer was fired Wednesday morning after NBC News said it was alerted of a credible accusation of sexual misconduct against Lauer. Since the veteran host’s firing, several more women came forward to allege Lauer sexually assaulted them in incidents dating back to 2001.
Clinton criticized Lauer in “What Happened” for his handling of an NBC News “Commander-in-Chief Forum” just two months before Election Day. During the forum, Lauer frequently interrupted Clinton and pressed her on her email controversy. Critics said Lauer went much easier on now-President Trump during a separate interview.
“I was ticked off,” the former secretary of State wrote. “NBC knew exactly what it was doing here. The network was treating this like an episode of ‘The Apprentice,’ in which Trump stars and ratings soar.”
What a joke. Everything is about Hillary, Hillary, Hillary. As hard as she tried, pandering and bloviating to the uninformed couldn’t get Clinton into the White House.
