New Book Details the Harrowing Life Inside the Hillary Clinton Campaign

Hillary Clinton was ‘so mad she couldn’t think straight’ after being humiliated in the Michigan Democratic primary.

The failed Presidential candidate attacked her aides with a ‘potent mix of exhaustion and exasperation’ after the embarrassing loss to her rival Bernie Sanders in March last year.

Clinton’s top staff said she was ‘visibly, unflinchingly p***ed off at us’ and blamed them for making her look ‘vulnerable’.

During another tirade this one bashing the staff because they weren’t able to bury the stories about his wife’s email server,  former President Bubba Clinton took over and gave aides an “a** chewing” on the phone and told them to “do their d**n jobs”.

Hillary came back on the line to close the lecture. It was hard to tell what was worse — getting hollered at by Bill or getting scolded by the stern and self-righteous Hillary. Neither was pleasant. You heard him, she admonished. “Get it straight.”

The details of the hollering showcased the tensions at the top of Clinton’s presidential campaign a campaign that was quick to blame others for its own mistakes.  After all it was never supposed to be this close. She was supposed to win. Hillary’s 2016 election loss isn’t the story of a FBI director’s inopportune announcement timing or even Russian interference, any analysis of her loss has to start with main problem of Ms. Clinton’s campaign —> Hillary Clinton, and a campaign that seemed as if it wasn’t trying to win…instead, it was trying not to lose.

Politico reporter Jonathan Allen and White House correspondent for the Hill, Amie Parnes detail the have written an unflattering tome on the doomed campaign called,Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed CampaignThe book tells the story of the 2016 candidate who couldn’t lose, but did.. Based on the excerpt in The Hill this was a campaign that was fighting among themselves so much, that they couldn’t shoot straight when they tried to fight Donald Trump.
