John McCain thinks that Hillary Clinton doesn’t have enough to do, and that’s why she’s so fixated on the 2016 election.
In an interview with Esquire magazine published on Sunday, McCain said that Clinton hadn’t waited long enough before publishing her memoir of the campaign.
“One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ‘I did the right thing! I did!’ The hardest thing to do is to just shut up,” said McCain, who lost his own bid for the White House against Barack Obama’s historic 2008 campaign.
“What’s the f–king point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on,” he said in the interview. “This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”
It seems McCain feels that history has had enough time to judge his own campaign, as he plans to release his memoir, “The Restless Wave,” in April. His 2008 campaign will be covered in that book.
McCain’s criticism comes against the release of “What Happened,” Clinton’s own memoir about the most recent presidential campaign, which discusses her own failings as well as the way people like Bernie Sanders and James Comey contributed to her ultimate defeat.
