What Happened To “What Happened”: Amazon Slashes Hillary's Book Price 40% Before It Hits Shelves
Last Friday, in an attempt at humor, we shared a satirical note from The Onion suggesting that Hillary had already begun work on a follow-up book, entitled “What Also Happened,” intended to define precisely who was to blame for the failure of her first book, “What Happened.”
Alas, if prices are any indicator of demand, which they’re pretty much universally accepted to be unless you’re discussing minimum wages with Bernie Sanders, then Hillary may want to double down on efforts to rush out the sequel as both Amazon and Walmart have decided to slash prices of “What Happened” by 40% before the books even hit shelves.
After Hillary’s publisher Simon and Schuster suggested a price of $30, Amazon slashed prices to $17.99 earlier today…
…and Walmart quickly matched…
Of course, the reviews have already started to pour into Amazon even though no one has a copy of the book yet. Isaac apparently hated the book because he’s tired of hearing Hillary “blame her failure on sexism.”
“What happened is she can not take responsibility for many of her own actions and blames her failure on sexism.
Ironically, it’s things like this that cause people on the fence go to the other side just to spite her.”
Meanwhile, DirtBird thought the book was great…at balancing out his uneven table…
Finally, for those who are interested in what Hillary has to say in “What Happened” but just don’t have time to read a book right now, we found this summary to be a fairly accurate portrayal:

For those who missed it, here is The Onion’s uncanny prediction of Hillary’s latest failure from last Friday…
Fact or Fiction:
CHAPPAQUA, NY – Saying it would provide a candid account of her experiences writing an unsuccessful tell-all, sources confirmed Thursday that Hillary Clinton is already working on a follow-up book casting blame for the failures of her previous memoir What Happened.
“From my agent negotiating that underwhelming deal with Simon & Schuster, to the graphic designer’s lackluster cover art, to my so-called supporters who couldn’t be bothered to drop $17.99 for the hardcover copy – everyone had a hand in undermining my last book’s success,” reads a passage from the introduction to Clinton’s What Also Happened, which repeatedly decries her prior book’s “indecipherable” font and dedicates an entire chapter to lashing out at her copy editor for making her look like “an idiot third-grader.”
“I’ll never forget how Amazon buried me and how Barnes & Noble completely sabotaged me by displaying my book way in the back in that no man’s land by the CDs. Frankly, it’s obvious I got screwed on all sides.”
Accusing them of stealing her spotlight, the book reportedly concludes with a long list of every other celebrity who published a memoir in the past year.
