An upcoming book from New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick is shedding new light on Hillary Clinton’s disastrous 2016 campaign; claiming the doomed nominee went on an expletive filled tirade during her debate practice.
Excerpts from ‘Chasing Hillary’ obtained by the Guardian show the former Secretary of State lashing out at advisors and aides as she prepared for her high-stakes debates with then-candidate Donald Trump; blasting her opponent as a “disgusting” human.
“Aides understood that in order to keep it all together onstage, Hillary sometimes needed to unleash on them in private,” Chozick writes.
“‘You want authentic, here it is!’ she’d yelled in one prep session, followed by a f***-laced fusillade about what a ‘disgusting’ human being Trump was and how he didn’t deserve to even be in the arena,” she adds.
The tell-all exposé also reveals Clinton’s initial reaction upon learning of Donald Trump’s inevitable election; telling top aides she knew “they were never going to let me be president.”
