Ed Klein, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine and bestselling author of the book “Guilty As Sin,” about the Clinton political family, says Bill and Hillary had a screaming match only days before her election loss that ended with Bill Clinton throwing his phone off the roof of his penthouse apartment in Arkansas.
And it gets worse.
According to sources cited by “The Kincannon Show” on radio, Hillary Clinton lost her composure entirely when her loss to Donald Trump became evident, “crying” so much that it was “hard to understand what she was saying.”
Klein said she even turned combative against her staff.
Many wondered on Election Night why Hillary Clinton didn’t come out and address supporters when it appeared Trump had won. Instead, campaign Chairman John Podesta told the crowd gathered in New York City that votes were still being counted and they should all go home for the night.
A short time later, however, Clinton called Trump to concede. She gave her concession speech the next morning, admitting the loss was very painful.
The conflicts took place even before the results were in, according to Klein, when it became apparent Clinton would not easily defeat Trump, as expected.
Klein’s report, published by the London Daily Mail, made that clear, citing “one of Bill’s closest advisers,” who said he was with Bill “in Little Rock when he had this shouting match with Hillary on the phone and she accused [FBI Director James] Comey for reviving the investigation into her use of a private email server and reversing her campaign’s momentum.’”
Klein’s report continued: “‘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.”
Klein’s source told him: “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.”
He explained that Bill Clinton felt he was ignored by the Hillary campaign, especially when he advised that the constant attacks on Trump weren’t a message that was resonating.
“Bill always campaigned as a guy who felt your pain, but Hillary came across as someone who was pissed off at her enemy [Trump], not someone who was reaching out and trying to make life better for the white working class,” Klein’s source told him.
The Political Insider went inside the Election Night fracas, through the statements of sources.
“According to a radio host who spoke with a CNN reporter, things got ugly,” the blog post said, quoting “The Kincannon Show.”
CNN reporter tells me Hillary became physically violent towards Robby Mook and John Podesta around midnight; had to be briefly restrained.

The show tweeted that its source revealed Hillary “became physically violent towards Robby Mook and John Podesta around midnight.”
There was a time she was “briefly restrained,” the tweet claimed.
At Infowars, Paul Joseph Watson said radio host Todd Kincannon also tweeted that Hillary was feeling the influence of alcohol.
She was. I posted about that too. She was in a “psychotic drunken rage” according to my reporter friend. Doctor added sedatives to the mix. http://t.co/jZv376ydDM

Reportedly, the Insider said, the campaign had started cracking the celebratory champagne bottles before the results were in.
“A combination of a few drinks and an angry candidate may have led to Clinton’s disappearance that night. Rather than make a concession speech, she refused to address her election night party and instead sent Podesta out to clean up the mess.”
It continued: “Is it any wonder that so many of her followers are emulating Clinton’s behavior, going on full-fledged temper tantrums and riots, shedding massive amounts of tears because the election didn’t go the way they wanted it to?”
Infowars reported Kincannon explained CNN blocked its reporter from publishing “what would have been a bombshell story.”
WND had reported only hours before the vote counting began across the U.S. that the Clinton campaign was in a panic.
At the time, Klein told Breitbart News’ Alex Marlow on SiriusXM radio: “In my view, what has not been reported, and what I think is very significant, is that we’ve all forgotten that Anthony Weiner is under investigation for what amounts to child pornography, alleged child pornography.”
Klein said Weiner made the FBI aware of his computer, which contained hundreds of thousands of emails from his estranged wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The emails could include illegally stored classified information.
In exchange, Klein said then he believed, Weiner cut a deal to reduce the serious criminal charges he could face, including child pornography. Weiner allegedly exchanged sexually charged texts with a 15-year-old girl over a period of months, despite knowing the girl’s age.
