Leading up to the presidential election, Hillary Clinton was trying to make it look like her marriage to Bill Clinton was stronger than ever. Now, however, it has been revealed that this was actually a blatant lie, much like the rest of her campaign.
Daily Mail reported that one of Bill’s advisors just revealed that in the final days of the election, Bill and Hillary had a knock-down, drag-out fight about her effort to blame FBI Director James Comey for her decline in the polls.
“I was with Bill in Little Rock when he had this shouting match with Hillary on the phone and she accused Comey for reviving the investigation into her use of a private email server and reversing her campaign’s momentum,” the advisor said. “Bill didn’t buy the excuse that Comey would cost Hillary the election. As far as he was concerned, all the blame belonged to [campaign manager Robby] Mook, [campaign chairman John] Podesta and Hillary because they displayed a tone-deaf attitude about the feeble economy and its impact on millions and millions of working-class voters.”
“Bill was so red in the face during his conversation with Hillary that I worried he was going to have a heart attack,” the source added. “He got so angry that he threw his phone off the roof of his penthouse apartment and toward the Arkansas River.”
Bill owns a luxury penthouse apartment with an outdoor garden at the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock. The former president reportedly felt like he was ignored during the campaign by Hillary’s advisors after he urged them to make the economy the centerpiece of her campaign. He had told them they needed to connect with the people who had been left behind by the revolutions in technology and globalization.
“Bill said that constantly attacking Trump for his defects made Hillary’s staff and the media happy, but that it wasn’t a message that resonated with voters, especially in the rust belt,” the advisor said. “Bill always campaigned as a guy who felt your pain, but Hillary came across as someone who was pissed off at her enemy [Trump], not someone who was reaching out and trying to make life better for the white working class.”
“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.”
Though Bill acknowledged that Comey’s decision to reopening the investigation into Hillary was an issue for her campaign, he believed the issue had little impact on the outcome because it had already been baked into the decisions of most voters.
“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,” the source added. “She told Bill that his ideas were old and that he was out of touch. In the end, there was nothing he could do about it because Hillary and her people weren’t listening to anything he said.”
