Hillary Clinton’s Best-Selling Book Smashes Bill O’Reilly’s Streak Of #1 Debuts

Disgraced ex-Fox News star Bill O’Reilly may have spent a career trying to take down people like Hillary Clinton, but this week the 2016 popular vote winner had the last laugh.

For the first time in seven years, O’Reilly did not immediately debut at #1 on the bestsellers list after releasing his new book, “Killing England.” Why? Because Clinton’s book, “What Happened,” sold tens of thousands more copies this week – ending the right-wing propagandist’s streak.

As the Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday, Clinton’s book was in its second week, but it still managed to outdo O’Reilly in sales – by quite a bit.

More from the report:

“Killing England,” the latest in O’Reilly’s blockbuster series of history books, sold 65,000 copies in hardcover. According to NPD BookScan, only one nonfiction book sold better, although its author has long been a political foe of the conservative commentator. Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” sold 93,000 copies in its second week, a drop from its opening sales of 168,000 copies, when pre-orders also were included. First week numbers for “What Happened” were the highest for any nonfiction book in five years.

As Clinton’s book is enjoying high sales and critical acclaim, O’Reilly seems to be heading in the opposite direction with “Killing England.”

As the LA Times also noted, the Fox News commentator’s previous book, released last year, sold 145,000 copies in its first week. That’s a stunning decline in sales compared to this year.

With the help of his former colleague Sean Hannity, O’Reilly tried to drive up sales by stopping by his show this week, but it appears to have failed miserably.

Even Trump seems irked that Clinton’s book is beating O’Reilly’s. On Thursday, the president retweeted a Twitter post by O’Reilly promoting his book and calling it a “huge bestseller.”

It’s a seller, sure, but it’s not quite the best seller, Mr. O’Reilly.

Not only did the former Fox star lose his job due to an avalanche of sexual harassment claims, but thanks to Hillary Clinton, he no longer has his bestselling streak to hold onto either.
