Piers Morgan isn’t holding back when it comes to Hillary Clinton’s new memoir “What Happened,” which hit shelves Tuesday, calling it a “whiny, self-pitying, deluded load of literary claptrap.”

The former CNN host penned a blistering column for The Daily Mail on Wednesday, saying reading Mrs. Clinton’s “self-indulgent” book left him feeling like he had just been lowered into “a large vat of violently indignant, furiously self-justifying, boiling mad spittle.”

Mr. Morgan said the twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate managed to fill 469 pages about the 2016 election, despite there being nothing left to say.

“It’s not so much a book as an elongated case for the defense of abject failure, presented by a lawyer who’s just lost a slam-dunk court battle that no good lawyer should ever have lost,” he wrote.

Mr. Morgan said Mrs. Clinton’s list of people to blame for her loss to President Trump, including everybody but herself, is “so long, it’s frankly laughable.”

Mrs. Clinton points the finger at James Comey, Vladimir Putin, Julian Assange, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jill Stein, Anthony Weiner, Mitch McConnell, Bernie Sanders and his supporters, the mainstream media, sexism, white people, Black Lives Matter protestors, the Electoral College, and history itself, Mr. Morgan wrote.

He said that what Mrs. Clinton failed to do was blame herself for running a “diabolically elitist and blinkered campaign” with no coherent message except that Mr. Trump is terrible.

“America didn’t vote for Hillary because they didn’t like what she represents and rejected her vague, unimaginative vision for the country,” he wrote.

Mr. Morgan said Mrs. Clinton is only causing damage to the Democratic Party with this “prolonged, agonizing Loser tour.”

Hillary has become a walking, whining by-word for political disaster and carries with her an overpowering stench of electoral death,” he wrote. “This book is thus utterly pointless. Nobody wants to hear any more about ‘what happened.’ It happened, and we all know why. End.

“Now please Hillary, for the love of God, just accept you blew it and shut up, before you take your party down with you,” he concluded.
