A photo of Hillary Clinton signing a copy of the cover of Newsweek with her photo and the words “Madam President” on it prior to the election has been shared on social media by ABC’s Cecilia Vega.
The day before the election the publisher sent copies of the issue to retailers and called its idea to predict the winner a “business decision.”
Apparently a bad one.
Nearly as dumb as pre-signing them because you thought there was no way you weren’t going to win.

Clinton staffers were so confident they had the election won and that counting the votes was a formality that they were popping champagne on the campaign’s airplane early on Election Day, according to the New York Times.
Social media found it hilarious.
The more I hear about @HillaryClinton drinking champagne and signing Newsweek covers, the more I hope a special prosecutor reams her shit.
