Hulu drops Hillary Clinton series after two years of development

Disney-owned Hulu has finally realized what all of America has known for years — Hillary Clinton is unpopular because she’s repugnant — and has dropped its planned series Rodham¬†that focused on her life.

The series’ producer, 20th Television, is reportedly shopping it to other streaming services after the Hulu diss.

It’s surprising that Hulu didn’t run with the series, which is set to feature Claire Danes and Dakota Fanning playing Hillary at different ages, since it is already home to Hillary, a four-part sit-down with the twice-failed presidential candidate and former first lady and secretary of state.

Rodham, on the other hand, imagines that Hillary had never married Bill Clinton and had instead pursued power on her own. It is based on a Curtis Sittenfeld novel published in 2020.

Unlikeable

In the series, Clinton becomes a college professor and runs for office in 2016. It’s kind of an unrealistic scenario since I’m not aware we have any U.S. presidents who got there from teaching at a college rather than being governor or a senator, or at least a minor celebrity billionaire like Donald Trump.

She is extremely unlikeable and was largely ineffective as a secretary of state, where she mainly made excuses for why four Americans died in Benghazi on her watch, and lied about her misuse of official email.

She comes across as a “dragon lady” type; in fact, she kind of reminds me of my old vice principal in high school — the one who handed out detentions and suspensions. Ms. Durante couldn’t afford to be nice, and maybe that’s how Clinton felt as one of the first top female officials, too.

Still, it didn’t end up being a good look for her, and she has now thankfully aged out of her presidential hopes. Only the hard-core progressives wanted to hear that shrill, scolding cackle for four years, or maybe eight.

Stories about women

She did launch a production company with her daughter Chelsea that aims to elevate stories “for and about women,” whatever that means.

I guess show business is the natural avenue when you’ve been a media darling for almost a decade, even if you didn’t do anything to deserve it except being a Democratic politician.

The Obamas are parlaying their popularity into Netflix series, taking home millions to fund their beach house and exotic, vacation lifestyle.

Of course, they were actually popular and well-liked by a majority of voters, something Clinton has never, and will never, experience.
