Poor Hillary Clinton. She just can’t figure out what happened. 2008 was supposed to be hers, and 2016 was really supposed to be hers. So, she’s running around the country shilling her book, embarrassingly titled What Happened. She’s selling plenty of copies to her sycophants, but there’s one person who remains unimpressed — her husband Bill Clinton.
Edward Klein, who has written several books on the Clintons, says that Bill threw his own copy in the trash and is “heartsick” over Hillary’s self-humilation, the New York Post reports.
“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” a Clinton family friend reportedly told Klein. He also tried to persuade her to change the title. “He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’”
According to Klein, Bill Clinton saw the writing on the wall and tried to convince his then-candidate wife to campaign in the rust belt but, “She told him he was delusional.”
The Post reports that this has driven such a wedge between them that they’re barely communicating. That’s probably why they released separate statements on Klein’s allegations.
“Ed is a sad man,” a spokesman for Hillary said. “And a pathetic liar,” added Bill’s rep.
