2016 was not a year that was in Hillary Clinton’s favor as the Presidential elections is not the only thing that slipped out of her grasp. As it turns out, her marriage with Bill Clinton has hit rock bottom!
Even though many would argue that their marriage was as good as over for quite a while, ever since Bill Clinton’s infidelity was splashed all across the tabloids, Hillary had managed to hold on to the last shred of hope of saving her relationship, until the very end of her Presidential Campaign this year.
Hillary And Bill Clinton’s Waning Marriage
And cashing on the misery of Hillary Clinton in both her personal as well as professional life is New York Times bestselling author Ed Klein, who has just released his fourth book on the scandalous marriage of the Clintons, titled “Guilty As Sin”.
Klein’s latest book, just like the previous three, is a tell-all, featuring some of the juiciest controversies of Hillary and Bill Clinton’s life, including episodes where both fought like cats and dogs during the final days of the 2016 elections, reports Daily Mail.
According to Klein, Hillary Clinton was hardly herself after FBI Director James Comey reopened the investigation into her private emails so close to Election Day. And she took it out on Bill Clinton frequently.
Recalling one of those moments, when Klein was present with Bill Clinton in the Clinton’s Presidential Library in Little Rock, he says that the couple entered into a huge row over who should be blamed for Hillary Clinton’s dying campaign.
Hillary Clinton Ignored Bill Clinton’s Advise
Hillary called up her husband and conveyed her fury at Comey for dragging up her private email controversy yet again.
At this point, Bill appeared to disagree with his wife, stating that it was her fault along with John Podesta (campaign chairman) and Robby Mook (campaign manager), that they chose to focus on their opponent instead of pressing economic issues of the country, which cost them, their campaign.
This set off a rowing match between the two. “Bill was so red in the face during his conversation with Hillary that I worried he was going to have a heart attack. He got so angry that he threw his phone off the roof of his penthouse apartment and toward the Arkansas River,” mentions Klein in the book.
Bill was mainly annoyed with Hillary because he was increasingly treated as a “hired hand”, who was never consulted on any matter concerning the Presidential Campaign, despite the fact that he has had first-hand experience of it in the past.
“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,” states Ed Klein in his book.
Also, Ed Klein is pretty sure that Hillary Clinton has managed to ruin her own future as well as that of her children with her egoistic running of the campaign as a one-woman show.
“…I don’t think anybody’s going to pay her these big fees to speak at Goldman Sachs anymore — and I also don’t think that the Saudi Arabian billionaires are going to be giving hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, now that the Clintons can’t do anything for them in return,” Klein said in a recent interview, reports News Max.
