Clinton’s ‘novel,’ a mix of self-worship & cringe attacks on Trump, is proof politicians should keep their fiction off the page

The debut novel from Hillary Clinton, ‘State of Terror,’ includes not-so-veiled attacks on Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and others, in what may be the worst piece of fiction yet from a politician.

Politicians using book deals to keep their profile relevant is nothing new. Considering the amount of memoirs that have been written by former Trump White House staffers, we should be expecting one from the janitorial staff before the year is up.

Some, however, cannot settle for just spilling their political views onto the page, so they try their hands at fiction. Typically, politicians are pretty good at fiction, especially the longer they have held office, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a novel with a senator or congressman’s name on it that is worth reading. ‘State of Terror’ by Hillary Clinton and Canadian author Louise Penny doesn’t change this.

The book, out today, follows Ellen Adams, a newly-appointed secretary of state forced to step down from her media empire for her new assignment. As the president addresses Congress for the first time, bombings are reported in major cities around the world. Adams begins her globe-trotting adventure to discover who is behind the chaos and stop future bombings.
