Hillary Clinton announced that she is planning to write a political thriller titled ‘State of Terror’ with author Louise Penny and not surprisingly it was met with eye-rolls on social media.
Axios reported on Tuesday that the three-time presidential candidate loser and ex-Secretary of State’s book ‘State of Terror’ should be published sometime around October by Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press.

Hillary Clinton Being As Repugnant As Ever
‘State of Terror’ will follow a “novice Secretary of State” who “joins the administration of her rival” a president who was inaugurated “after four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage”.
Insert those social media eye-rolls here, at Hillary Clinton’s not-so-thinly-veiled reference to the Trump administration, as it has been characterized by Democrats.
Bet we know who the antagonist is going to be based on????

According to the released ‘State of Terror’ synopsis.
A series of terrorist attacks will throw the “global order into disarray” and the secretary will be tasked with “assembling a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy” designed to take advantage of a US government dangerously “out of power in the places where it counts the most,”
While some dedicated Clinton supporters celebrated the news, along with fans of Penny’s other work, others were less excited.
“The Public is clamoring for a Hillary Clinton thriller,” reacted one Twitter user adding the eye-roll emoji, while another joked, “I bet every agitator in the book will be a Russian spy.”

Twitter Tears Hillary Clinton A New One
“I’d rather she publish the emails she ‘lost’…” another person offered, referencing the Clinton email scandal prompted after thousands of emails stored on a private server were deleted.
Another joked that perhaps the book would feature a “vast right-wing conspiracy” – the phrase Clinton infamously used to describe the later-proven allegations against Bill Clinton of a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
It’s going to feature a vast right wing conspiracy.

Clinton has already published numerous books and memoirs, from a childrens’ book about her pets written during her time as the first lady to her post-election defeat memoir titled ‘What Happened’ – and more recently books for children co-authored with her daughter Chelsea.
Another one of Clinton’s planned projects, the production of a TV series on female Kurdish fighters in Syria, was met with a similar reaction last month.
