You love to see it.
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a melancholic trip down memory lane by reading part of the speech she would have given if she was elected president in 2016.
“In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election,” Clinton says in the video released by NBC.
“I’ve never shared this with anybody. I’ve never read this out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in, and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren, and that I want for the world, that I believe in that is America at its best.”
Clinton actually broke down in tears at one point during her bizarre speech.

Her emotional and delusional segment was apparently part of a MasterClass course on the “power of resilience.”
For the first time ever, @HillaryClinton reads parts of her victory speech she hoped to deliver 5 years ago.

Part of the former Secretary of State’s never-was speech is as follows:
My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world,’ she begins, sharing what she would have read to the world. ‘Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, one.
We will not be defined only by our differences. We will not be an us versus them country. The American dream is big enough for everyone. Through a long, hard campaign, we were challenged to choose between two very different visions for America. How we grow together, how we live together, and how we face a world full of peril and promise together.
Fundamentally, this election challenged us to decide what it means to be an American in the 21st century. And for reaching for a unity, decency, and what President Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.’ We met that challenge.
Today, with your children on your shoulders, neighbors at your side, friends old and new standing as one, you renewed our democracy. And because of the honor you have given me, you changed its face forever.
In reality, Clinton refused to face her supporters on election night and didn’t deliver a concession speech following Donald Trump’s victory, instead sending out her campaign manager John Podesta to send the audience home.
