Gee, this rage and foul-mouthed diatribe sure does belie her image as the warm, sweet, kind-hearted grandmother that we’ve all come to know and love.
An enraged Hillary Rodham Clinton blew up at President Obama, demanding he “call off your f–king dogs” looking into her e-mails during a tense Oval Office meeting, according to a new book.
The book, “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” says 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 e-mail 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.”
Can America really entrust the nuclear codes to someone so prone to anger and rage? We don’t think so. It seems as if she’s emotionally unstable, not to mention a criminal.
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.”
Paranoia surely seems to be a symptom of early onset dementia. She might want to get checked out. Meanwhile, her problems continue to mount.
The FBI has recovered personal and work-related e-mails from the private computer server used by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s success at salvaging personal e-mails that Clinton said had been deleted raises the possibility that the Democratic presidential candidate’s correspondence eventually could become public. The disclosure of such e-mails would likely fan the controversy over Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system for official business.
The FBI is investigating how and why classified information ended up on Clinton’s server. The probe probably will take at least several more months, according to the person, who described the matter on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing and deals with sensitive information.
A review by Clinton and her aides determined that about half of the 60,000 e-mails she exchanged during her four-year tenure as secretary of state were of a personal nature, the presidential candidate has said.
In an obvious ploy to distract from the bad news, Grandma bravely came out against the Keystone XL pipeline yesterday, just as the media was distracted by the Pope’s arrival in Washington. Hard choices, yo.
