Hillary Clinton tweeted an endorsement Sunday for a new website called Verrit that specifically targets her voters.

Verrit was started by former Clinton adviser Peter Daou and bills itself as “media for the 65.8 million” — a direct reference to the number of votes Clinton received in the 2016 election.
From the Verrit website:
65,853,516 Americans voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, giving her a decisive popular vote victory over Donald Trump. Clinton’s voters came from all backgrounds and political persuasions; some supported other candidates in the primaries; but all had common interests and aspirations, among them a repudiation of what Trump’s campaign stood for.
The Clinton coalition remains strong and engaged. #StillWithHer is a widely-used hashtag that reflects a mindset and a mission: to fight for a future where love trumps hate, dignity overcomes division, equality and justice defeat extremism and bigotry.
Hillary Clinton faced relentless vilification, imbalanced media coverage, and foreign propaganda, yet still attracted more votes than any presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama in 2008.
With the essence of American democracy at stake, 65.8 million people saw through the lies and smears and made a wise, patriotic choice. But they continue to be marginalized and harassed. Verrit’s purpose is to become their trusted source of political information and analysis; to provide them (and anyone like-minded) sanctuary in a chaotic media environment; to center their shared principles; and to do so with an unwavering commitment to truth and facts.
Verrit can only grow with the help of those whose values it reflects and serves. We ask you to join us, sign up, spread the word, share your views, and together we can reject revisionism and tell our own story with integrity and honesty.
Clinton’s book on the 2016 election will be released next week, so the launch of Verrit seems to be more about supporting her excuses for why she lost the election than an honest look at the issues.
