Bill Clinton, it appears, is no longer “with her.”
The New York Post’s Page Six has revealed that the Clintons aren’t speaking with each other, and haven’t even been seen together in public since August, after Bill Clinton reportedly threw Hillary’s pity-party book in the trash.
Page Six is quoting excerpts from author Ed Klein’s new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump, due out October 30. In it, Klein claims that a Clinton family friend revealed that the pair’s relationship has been on the rocks since the election. Bill reportedly chastised Hillary’s campaign strategy, and even told her a month before the election that she was losing. He suggested she campaign in the “rust-belt,” which eventually turned to Trump on Election Day.
Hillary angrily dismissed her husband’s suggestions, believing her advisors that predicted a landslide. After her loss, Bill confronted Hillary on her mistakes, which did not go over well.
Hillary made things even worse after Bill reviewed the manuscript for her book What Happened. He made numerous notes and suggested she change the title, saying that people would mock it as a joke. Hillary never reviewed his notes and refused his advice to not turn the book into a blame game. Bill also suggested delaying the book to do some major rewrites. She refused.
When Bill finally received the finished book, he reportedly threw it in the trash. Klein’s source claims the Clintons now use attorneys and friends to speak with each other.
According to Page Six, the friend said: ‘He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader.
He hated the title because calling it “What Happened” would only make people say, “You lost.”
‘He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said: “The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published”.’
Bill is said to have given Hillary extensive notes on the book, which she refused to read before he threw the tome in the trash.
Since then the pair have been speaking through friends and lawyers, the source said
Bill and Hillary were last pictured together toward the end of August while enjoying a visit to see friends in the Hamptons. The couple have not been seen together since.
Bill was previously reported to have blown up at Hillary after her defeat, despite a public show of affection during her concession speech, accusing her of failing to campaign in rust belt states which eventually voted for Trump.
