Wow. It would appear that things are not all well in the land of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. While no one has ever considered the two politicians to be close personal friends, we at least thought that they were probably amicable partners in America’s destruction. Apparently, we were wrong.
A new book by Edward Klein called “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary” outlines the details of one particularly explosive confrontation between Hillary Clinton (then Secretary of State) and President Obama.
“The former first lady was furious at what she believed were damaging leaks by Obama aides that led to investigations of her use of a private email server as secretary of state. So she went right to the top to settle the matter.
Clinton requested a meeting with Obama, against the advice of hubby Bill Clinton, believing “she was being persecuted for minor, meaningless violations,” author Edward Klein writes.
Clinton initially took a friendly approach during the meeting and Obama reacted as if he didn’t know what she was talking about, the book claims.
“He was almost being deliberately dense,” a Clinton source said. “It really angered her.”
Clinton lost her temper and called the president by his first name in an emotionally driven break with White House decorum, according to the book.
“What I want for you to do is call off your f–king dogs, Barack!” Clinton allegedly barked at Obama, according to Klein’s account, which cited sources close to Clinton and Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The president was so stunned by Clinton’s disrespectful demands, he needed a moment to compose himself, the book claims.
Obama then responded, “There is nothing I can do for you one way or another. Things have been set in motion, and I can’t and won’t interfere. Your problems are, frankly, of your own making. If you had been honest . . .”
Klein reports Clinton interrupted, “There are always haters out there to get the Clintons.”
This probably won’t make Team Clinton very happy. They’ve already had to deal with enough problems over the last few weeks and months and adding this new twist is just going to make life harder for them. The nation already thinks of Clinton as a humorless, terrifying force for the liberal establishment – this anecdote just proves that point. Can you imagine any other President experiencing a similarly disrespectful scene with a member of their own administration? Especially when that person has designs of furthering their own political career? There’s just no way.
This latest little story will only solidify every terrible preconceived notion that people have of Hillary Clinton.
And you know what… it’s because all of those preconceived notions are accurate.
