Ed Klein, who is the former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine and bestselling author of the book “Guilty As Sin,” about the Clinton political family, says Bill and Hillary had a screaming match only days before her election loss that ended with Bill Clinton throwing his phone off the roof of his penthouse apartment in Arkansas. It’s been reported they had a vicious fight over the phone over who to blame for her sagging poll numbers, reveals a source close to the ex-president. Hillary blamed FBI Director Comey for reopening investigation based on Anthony Weiner’s shared computer with Huma Abedin for her slump. Bill faulted Robby Mook, John Podesta and Hillary HERSELF. He claimed the three were tone-deaf about the feeble economy and its impact on millions and millions of working-class voter ‘A big part of Bill’s anger toward Hillary was that he was sidelined during the entire campaign by her advisers,’ said the source. These conflicts took place even before the results were in, according to Klein, when it became apparent Clinton would not easily defeat Trump, as expected.
According to the source, Bill was severely critical of Hillary’s decision to reject an invitation to address a St. Patrick’s Day event at the University of Notre Dame. Hillary’s campaign advisers nixed the idea on the grounds that white Catholics were not the audience she needed to reach. Bill also said that “many African Americans were deeply disappointed with the results of eight years of Obama, the source continued. Despite more and more government assistance, black weren’t economically any better off, and black-on-black crime was destroying their communities. He said Hillary should have gone into the South Side of Chicago and condemned the out-of-control violence.”
A big part of Bill’s anger toward Hillary was that he was sidelined during the entire campaign by her advisers,’ said the source. ‘He can’t be effective if he sees himself as just another hired hand. He wasn’t listened to and that infuriated him. After all, he knows something about campaigns, and he told me in early October that Hillary and her advisers were blowing it. Hillary wouldn’t listen. She told Bill that his ideas were old and that he was out of touch. In the end, it was Hillary and her entourage who was out of touch with the American people. Bill was right, there was nothing he could do about it because Hillary and her people weren’t listening to anything he said.
