Hillary Clinton recently had a party to thank her top donors. As you can probably imagine, people were not in high spirits. In fact, the event was rather somber.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports:
Hillary Clinton’s holiday party ‘like a wake’
“It was like a wake with a band,” quipped one guest who was at the Plaza on Thursday for Hillary Clinton’s holiday party to thank top-tier donors, VIP boosters and campaign advisers.
The source said, “It was a little bit of group therapy and a lot of love” among the losing Democratic rainmakers.
Spotted in the crowd were Clinton advisers Huma Abedin, John Podesta and Robby Mook, donors Alan Patricof, Bernard Schwartz, Marc Lasry, Jay Snyder and Robert Zimmerman, designers Vera Wang and Tory Burch, plus Anna Wintour, Harvey Weinstein and restaurateur Danny Meyer.
These folks have good reasons to be depressed. Not only did their candidate lose, many of them were planning to cash in on their relationship to President Hillary. Now that’s not going to happen.
Her staffers were planning on careers in the White House. Now they have to go out and get real jobs.
Imagine how depressing that thought must be for them.
