Amazon steps in to 'fix' Hillary book review

If you can’t even win when the rules are changed in your favor, things must be REALLY bad.

That’s how it looks for Hillary Clinton’s new 2016 campaign book, “Stronger Together,” co-authored with running mate Tim Kaine.
WND reported just days ago when the book was being savaged on with negative reviews, with 81 percent one-star ratings and an average of only 1.7.
Clinton supporters lashed out at “trolls” they said were criticizing the book only because they oppose the Democrat’s presidential candidacy.
WND previously reported there were more than 1,200 reviews, and the number grew to than 2,000.
But Thursday afternoon, there were only 255, with many of the most critical reviews removed by Amazon, whose CEO, Jeff Bezos, owns the Washington Post, which created an army of 20 reporters and researchers to investigate the life of Donald Trump.
Victory for the Clinton book, however, remains out of grasp, with the negative, one-star responses, outnumbering positive, five-star responses nearly 2-1.
The one-star ratings Thursday were 62 percent, to 35 percent for five-star ratings.
And reviewers many times simply punched the five-star button then made harshly critical condemnations of the book and Hillary Clinton.
From suz702, who posted a five-star ranking: 
“I didn’t buy this book or read this book, but I have read the reviews, and enjoyed hours of entertaining, fun filled reading, expressing the TRUTH, about a crooked, lying, corrupt, terminally ill Presidential candidate, who stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders, and who is about the steal the Presidency with the use of election fraud. 10 Stars to the authors of these reviews. Proof that not only are shoppers of superior intelligence, but they call it like they see it…. Amazon shows this as a verified purchase, when I didn’t buy the book … how fun!”
Another five-star reviewer, ian alexander, said
 “the book confirms the hrc is a racist. every matter in her mind is about races (sic). but reality is she does not care about the black people. just look at the ever increasing trend of black population that are relying on welfare since the Obama rule. the fundamental (sic) cause of this result is the fact that lefties of the country favor the riches by allowing outsourcing jobs to other countries. black people should wake up, stop supporting dnc and hrc, who is effectively a puppet of the elite class. the book is simply a propaganda.”
Just two days earlier, out of 1,244 reviews, 81 percent were one-star and 16 percent five-star. The book plunged from No. 840 earlier this week to No. 1,538 on Thursday. It was No. 5 in the subcategory “Books-Politics & Social Sciences-Politics & Government-Elections & Political Process-Leadership.”
