There have been plenty of instances in which the world could catch a glimpse of the real Hillary Clinton throughout her career as a corrupt liberal politician.
The former First Lady has been riding the coattails of her adulterous husband for decades, parlaying his unwarranted fame into a career of her own in which she served briefly as Secretary of State under disastrous former President Barack Obama, and spearheaded the oft-criticized shell-charity The Clinton Foundation.
During the 2016 presidential election, Clinton was at her most vulnerable. Not only was she getting her derriere handed to her by democratic socialist Bernie Sanders to the point in which she unethically enlisted the help of the DNC to defeat him, she was riddled with issues that came to light during Wikileaks’ unprecedented release of information against her.
This all led to a stunning defeat by republican nominee Donald Trump, wherein Clinton was so despondent that she could not fathom conceding to the President-Elect in any sort of timely manner.
Now, tales from within the doomed campaign are emerging, and they are painting a sordid and depressing picture of Hillary behind the scenes. In an excerpt from a new book revolving around her immense failure, authors and campaign insiders Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes lay out the dirt on the real Hillary.
“She’d been humiliated in the Michigan primary the night before, a loss that not only robbed her of a prime opportunity to put Bernie Sandersdown for good but also exposed several of her weaknesses. How could she have been left so vulnerable? She knew — or at least she thought she did. The blame belonged to her campaign team, she believed, for failing to hone her message, energize important constituencies and take care of business in getting voters to the polls. And now, Jake Sullivan, her de facto chief strategist, was giving her lip about the last answer she’d delivered in the prep session.
“’That’s not very good,’ Sullivan corrected.
“’Really?’ Hillary snapped back.
“The room fell silent.
“’Why don’t you do it?’”
For those who have been paying attention to the minute details of Hillary Clinton’s career, the snappy retort won’t come as much of a surprise. Clinton has been known to lambast those closest to her frequently, sometimes pushing the boundaries of decorum into physical violence…often while inebriated.
This all boils down to Clinton’s attitude of entitlement. The Hillary campaign got started under a ridiculous air of inevitability, in which Clinton herself would publicly scoff at the idea of anyone other than herself ascending to the highest office in the land. She joked at the expense of Bernie Sanders, who by all means would have eviscerated her in a fair primary fight, and she would employ the verbal equivalent of a condescending eye roll at the mere mention of Donald Trump making it to the White House.
Unfortunately for Clinton, all of the poor attitudes in the world could not save her from herself, no matter how many threats and insults she could land on her staff and peers.
