Following her loss, it was clear that Hillary Clinton was blaming everyone but herself. After taking so much heat from both Bill and Hillary, a former member of her campaign staff has come out to say that they’re all officially sick it.
Bill and Hillary Clinton made no secret of the fact they blame campaign staffers for her defeat in the presidential election, according to a new book about her failed bid.
“She was visibly, unflinchingly pissed off at us as a group,” an unnamed staffer said in the book, according to an excerpt obtained by The Hill. “And she let us know she felt that way.”
The book reveals the former secretary of state was full of excuses for why she faired poorly against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary and President Donald Trump in the general election. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes co-authored the book, titled “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.”
Reportedly furious after a dismal showing in the primaries, Clinton manufactured multiple reasons for her performance. She blamed her former campaign director Robby Mook for not selecting the right travel stops and for spending heavily in the wrong areas.
The book also claims Clinton blamed top staffers for poor polling that hid Sanders’ true performance. She blamed Mook for the campaign’s focus on minority communities instead of the white base that supported her against former President Barack Obama in 2008.
