Secret Service Agents Reveal Hillary Clinton Is A Nightmare To Work With

‘GOOD morning, ma’am,” a member of the uniformed Secret Service once greeted Hillary Clinton.

“F— off,” she replied.

That exchange is one among many that active and retired Secret Service agents shared with Ronald Kessler, author of First Family Detail, a compelling look at the intrepid personnel who shield America’s presidents and their families — and those whom they guard.

Kessler writes flatteringly and critically about people in both parties. Regarding the Clintons, Kessler presents Chelsea as a model protectee who respected and appreciated her agents. He describes Bill as a difficult chief executive, but an easygoing ex-president. And Kessler exposes Hillary as an epically abusive Arctic monster.

“When in public, Hillary smiles and acts graciously,” Kessler explains. “As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.”
He adds: “Hillary Clinton can make Richard Nixon look like Mahatma Gandhi.”

National Review too.
http://www.nationalreview.com/author/deroy-murdock

And it looks like this article was originally in the New York Post. Evidently you looked for somewhere else where it was syndicated in order to avoid linking there.

43. Have a problem with Fox News Contributors? How about the one who posts in the Hillary group?

 

You know the one... the guy who wrote the following in 2008, and put it out there for the WORLD to read?

One of the things you would expect of someone who really has good experience and judgment is that they can articulate a basic set of principles and positions on issues that they can run on and defend and that stay relatively static. I'm not saying you have to stick to them in the face of overwhelming evidence that one of your positions has been proven to be wrong, like George W. Bush does, even someone who has good experience and judgment occasionally changes their mind. That is not what we have with Hillary. Hillary gives a different opinion on the same subjects every couple of weeks depending on her audience and what she thinks it will net her. As evidence of this is now coming out and is going to be presented to the American people in the starkest terms, how can one be expected to trust her to do anything that she says she is going to do? How can one really know what she believes or intends to do about anything? The only things Hillary's experience seems to be good for is perfecting how to talk out of both sides of her mouth, engaging in the politics of personal destruction and other aspects of her ruthless pursuit of power that remind one of what a Karl Rove might do. That kind of person ought not to be the Democratic nominee.

I don't believe it. Hillary has her faults, but rudeness is not one of them, and to behave in this manner to an agent assigned to protect her simply does not seem at all likely to me. This reminds me of the sleazy "troopergate" accusations against Bill Clinton.

Could we please avoid posting stories like this that come from right wing sources? They add nothing to a serious debate about our country's future and who should be president.

As a matter of fact the one part I admire

88. actually there are several names quoted

Hillary was very rude to agents, and she didn’t appear to like law enforcement or the military,” former Secret Service agent Lloyd Bulman recalls. “She wouldn’t go over and meet military people or police officers, as most protectees do. She was just really rude to almost everybody. She’d act like she didn’t want you around, like you were beneath her.”

Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.”

Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” says former FBI agent Coy Copeland. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”

“She caught the guy on a ladder doing the light bulb,” says Franette McCulloch, who served at that time as assistant White House pastry chef. “He was a basket case.”
White House usher Christopher B. Emery unwisely called back Barbara Bush after she phoned him for computer troubleshooting. Emery helped the former first lady twice. Consequently, Kessler reports, Hillary sacked him. The father of four stayed jobless for a year.

i have no clue if those people are being truthful but if none of them are getting sued for defamation i would say it is pretty factual, this hits close to home with me because i work for rich people, repubs even but they have always treated me well, i do not have to scurry behind a curtain to hide myself from them

46. AUTOMATED MESSAGE: Results of your Jury Service

 

On Fri Oct 9, 2015, 01:11 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

"The Filthy Mouth of Hillary Clinton"
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=658092

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Stop with the tabloid rags and right wing attacks already. This is just getting gross.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Oct 9, 2015, 01:27 AM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Dislike for a referenced source is no reason to hide a comment.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: These accusations seem to be too corroborated by so many different personnel close to her, I don't think we should brush such "dirty laundry" under the rug...
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Obvious unsubstantiated gossip is obvious.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: It isn't personal. Leave it.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I have worked with the Secret Service and was briefed (off the record) of the First Lady sometimes "being abrupt". And found Chelsea a very polite young lady. This was in 1996.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

Amazing that anyone would alert a comment that is not at all "disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate."

67. SEVEN DAYS is not a rightwing source. So, sorry--fail. HUGE FAIL. They've given Sanders some

VERY favorable coverage as well. Sample: http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/bernie-beat/Category?oid=2428243 Most of the links on that page are praiseworthy accounts that tout Sanders. This publication has a good reputation for veracity.

The author of the piece is a regular reporter for that paper, and he identifies the complainers as staffers.

If I had to bet, I'd bet you any amount that the people who are still on Sanders' staff know exactly who the complainers are.

OTOH, the SS guy dissing Clinton IS a lunatic, discredited, and a hate-monger. All he does is write freak screeds and conspiracy theories. His material has never been welcomed here at DU.

You've got google--you also have the capability to discern sources. The fact that you don't bother to do that, and you reach for some kind of faux equivalence, is very telling.

Maybe they told him the truth, after all a stopped clock is right twice a day. In both articles the people trashing Hillary and Bernie spoke anonymously. Maybe your site that you praise as a truthtelling publication got fucking lied to, hoodwinked or bamboozled. Not the first time that has happened The sources can't be verified in either article. You praise and believe the one trashing Bernie using anonymous sources and are pissed at the one trashing Hillary using anonymous sources and try to convince me the one about Hillary is bad because... nasty site!!!!and that's pretty telling on its own.

View profile
and not liking a source that says something you don't want to hear. But hey that's your version of integrity. I don't like anonymous smears being used against Bernie or Hillary but that just me And here's another to end the conversation with.

29. Daily Mail had this

In this book Chelsea is considered polite and well -mannered. The day before they featured a book all about Chelsea that said SHE was a nightmare.
This is the anti-Clinton industry. You would think they want her to win because it is so lucrative for the haters.

30. so the anonymous sources in the "bernie is a grump" article are ok

but these are suspect?

give me a break

why don't we just stipulate that all pols, all people really, have their moments and move on to the issues,

unless some don't want to discuss issues because they have to copy their progressive "positions" from someone else......

51. Yes. These sources are all well documented and understood.

Give yourself a break. The truth is what it is. We all have a duty to look for and accept it. Look for something else to attack her on. She's a decent woman, no angel, but a decent woman with many friends. So what does CHOOSING to believe lies in the face of all the evidence make of one?

BTW, note how balanced so many of those Bernie sources were. None of them were immoderate haters. Most said nice things about him too.

68. Those were anonymous sources so just how well documented were they?

You do know why they are anonymous sources don't you? The horseshit lies can't be verified. You say
The truth is what it is. We all have a duty to look for and accept it.
but with anonymous sources the things said can't be verified as the truth. It hilarious how we have a duty to accept nasty things said anonymously against Bernie but not Hillary? Maybe the secret service agents who spoke anonymously trashing Hillary were telling the truth but really had nothing nice to say about her to balance it out

69. There are plenty of other sources who are not anonymous, Autumn.

Bernie was the mayor of a small town for plenty of time for everyone who cared to to get personal experience of him. And, of course, the Senate is also a "small town," where everyone knows him. His personality IS well known and well documented by many, both for its pluses and its minuses.

Personality matters. He is functioning far better -- so far -- as an iconoclastic candidate appealing to millions of angry people who don't know him than he ever did in the Senate among colleagues who do know him.

71. I agree personality matters, and according to what I have head for years Hillary has a problem there

The people I know who have supported him for years seem to like him.

And those people in Vermont just keep electing him. Over and over and over. What the fuck is wrong with those people???????? I love the people in Vermont, the ones who know him and are proud of him.

74. As has been pointed out, many of the people saying things you

don't want to hear about him also have good things to say too. As you note, they did reelect him. So he can't be totally impossible.

The question is whether he has reached his level of (in)competence in the Senate. You're up for experimenting with the presidency. I am not.

76. I have said nice thing about Hillary. The Secret Service from what I read? Not so much.

It's not an experiment, it's this little thing called Democracy, where you elect a President that represents the people and their needs. If the party is afraid of losing the presidency to a republican they should run and back better candidates that people want to actually vote for.

90. several sources are quoted by name

Hillary was very rude to agents, and she didn’t appear to like law enforcement or the military,” former Secret Service agent Lloyd Bulman recalls. “She wouldn’t go over and meet military people or police officers, as most protectees do. She was just really rude to almost everybody. She’d act like she didn’t want you around, like you were beneath her.”

Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.”

Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” says former FBI agent Coy Copeland. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”

“She caught the guy on a ladder doing the light bulb,” says Franette McCulloch, who served at that time as assistant White House pastry chef. “He was a basket case.”
White House usher Christopher B. Emery unwisely called back Barbara Bush after she phoned him for computer troubleshooting. Emery helped the former first lady twice. Consequently, Kessler reports, Hillary sacked him. The father of four stayed jobless for a year.

and was kidding him.

There's no way she could be as Kessler states - how would she have so many people willing to work directly with her to help her run for POTUS? She has to be inspiring to work for as would anyone who has a hope of winning.

48. Your source, the author of the book being quoted, works for a website that literally calls for the

death of gays on a repeated basis. They literally call for gays to be executed both here and abroad. Why is this here? Why should anyone who is gay, or cares about gays ever trust a word you type ever again? Again, you are bringing fame and fortune to a person who works for a site that calls for gays to literally be killed.

104. It is kind of the same thing "the help" in Arkansas said when Bill was governor.

She never wanted to see "the help" around. No cleaning or repairs when they were at home. Note that they said the same about Janet Huckabee. Neither wanted to see anyone not in a suit or dress clothes unless they "were someone". Strange people politicians.

People have to be psychotic to want to be a politician. I can't say that I would want to be friends with anyone in politics and IU am sure they fill the same about common people like me.

I have done work for some of them and I guess they are a lot like most of the wealthy, they have no use for the working people who job means they have to get dirty. I knew a plumber who lost his job after crawling out from under a house after fixing a pipe. The home owners wife came home and saw him crawling out dirty and called his company and had him fired for tracking dirt onto the grass. I had to go and fix a telephone set at a house, but I could not be there while the owner or his wife was there. I had to have the maid call the company and they would radio me when I go to the house.

Strange people.

So do I believe that the story is true, probably stretched, but not outlandish for the "real people" of the world.
