People Are Obsessed With The Tea Hillary Clinton Spilled In Her New Book

"Ted Cruz is the only man in politics wishing we were talking about Hillary Clinton's book."

Posted on

Hillary Clinton's book — "What Happened" — on the 2016 presidential campaign was released Tuesday to much anticipation.

People have been lining up outside the Union Square Barnes & Noble since 4:00 pm yesterday to see Hillary Clinton f… https://t.co/qHojI1jK4j

The book promises to reveal Clinton's "intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules." PHEW.

These 5 people have been waiting in line to see Hillary Clinton for about 15 hours. Brian, the first in line, arriv… https://t.co/eypgCWxU11

So naturally people were excited to read it, and those who did, had some ~ thoughts ~.

I really want to read Hillary's book, but I think it would make me ugly cry like on election night. Should I -->

Some were thrilled about all the tea Clinton was spilling in her book.

Republican critics and trump people going ham as Hillary pours the tea

Like the time she mistook former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz for former White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus.

Folks.......the Hillary book.........it's good

And when she dragged former Democratic senator and presidential candidate John Edwards for calling her weak.

Favorite part of Hillary Clinton's book so far is her dunking on John Edwards.

She also took on Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, describing him in less than flattering terms.

Hillary's fighting words on @JulianAssange : "Odious" "Hypocrite" "Reckless" "Wrong" "America-bashing misogynist"

Some people got so carried away by the tea spillage, they even believed this violent parody of the book.

I'm reading Hillary's book and it gives me a new appreciation of how hard she fought to win the election:

Some appreciated the pop culture references Clinton threw in.

See, people tell me to hate Hillary, but did Bernie's book reference Game of Thrones, @wmarybeard & Margaret Atwood… https://t.co/xZsFx7o9ZH

Others not so much.

The epigraph in Hillary Clinton’s new book is basically the cover of a high schooler’s trapper keeper.

Not everyone was delighted by the book.

Also, here are dudes today mad that Hillary Clinton has a book out —

Except perhaps Ted Cruz, whose Twitter account mysteriously liked a porn video on social media platform on the eve of Clinton's book release.

Ted Cruz is the only man in politics wishing we were talking about Hillary Clinton's book.

Some critics picked on the book's cover design.

Hillary's graphic designer put as much work into creating the cover for her book as her campaign did visiting Wisco… https://t.co/rPofzMrAp5

This Trump supporter made his own version of the book.

People's reactions to her book were reminiscent of reactions to her candidacy, one person observed.

hillary clinton in a nutshell is everyone shrieking about her book being awful until they actually read it and realize its good

But whatever the reaction, people could not stop talking about it.

The one certainty about Hillary's book is that peoples' reaction to it will say more about them than Hillary.

what it's taking to keep me reading Hillary's book RN

Whatever else my thoughts on Hillary's book (and I have many), I have to thank her for giving me "Wannabe Javerts"… https://t.co/FVfRrOss1D
