Seemingly everyone has an opinion about Hillary Clinton’s pity party/book What Happened and so, it was Hardball’s turn on Tuesday. Host Chris Matthews proclaimed it to be “a very profound and candid book” by “moderate” Hillary despite the fact that he hasn’t read the whole book yet.

“It's a question mark, What Happened and why — about why she lost the 2016 election and she wants to know why she's such a lightning rod. This is the human question she's asking. Why do all these millions of people not like me? It’s all we're going to talk about that, what she wrote. It’s a very profound and candid book,” Matthews swooned in a tease for the Clinton segment.
