Hillary is known to have a temper. Bill was on the receiving end of it as Hillary’s poll numbers were tanking close to the election.
In the waning days of the presidential campaign, Bill and Hillary Clinton had a knock-down, drag-out fight about her effort to blame FBI Director James Comey for her slump in the polls and looming danger of defeat.
‘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,’ said one of Bill Clinton’s closest advisers.
‘Bill didn’t buy the excuse that Comey would cost Hillary the election,’ said the source. ‘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. He got so angry that he threw his phone off the roof of his penthouse apartment and toward the Arkansas River.’
Bill has a luxurious penthouse apartment with an outdoor garden at the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock.
During the campaign, Bill Clinton felt that he was ignored by Hillary’s top advisers when he urged them to make the economy the centerpiece of her campaign.
He repeatedly urged them to connect with the people who had been left behind by the revolutions in technology and globalization.
Bill Clinton felt marginalized and that Hillary was using the wrong campaign strategy. He said that she was playing to the media and the Democrats by focusing on Trump’s weaknesses instead of resonating with working-class voters that felt the pinch of the economic shifts.
He thought she should have accepted an invitation to attend a St. Patrick’s Day event at the University of Notre Dame, but her campaign thought that ‘white Catholics’ weren’t the demographic she needed to reach.
He felt sidelined by Hillary’s campaign.
‘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.’

Hillary’s campaign didn’t listen to Bill, and neither did Hillary. She said his ideas were old and out of touch.
Maybe Hillary’s camp should get a truckload of these:
