Hillary Clinton has had no qualms about going after Donald Trump for what she declares a temperament that makes him “unfit” to be president. Well, it seems she’s got a bit of a hot head herself — particularly when it comes to cashflow opportunities — as a new Wikileaks release reveals.
A newly-revealed email chain exposes how Clinton was so furious after hubby Bill was forced to cancel a paid speech at Wall Street bank Morgan Stanley last year, that she “needed a cool down period.”
Don’t mess with that Clinton cash, or else taste the fury of Hillary.
Heat Street reports, The email chain, on March 11, 2015, before Hillary formally launched her campaign, includes top aides to both Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton, and reveals that Hillary’s future campaign aides were concerned about the optics and timing of Bill giving a speech to a Wall Street bank.
“Morgan Stanley is coming down,” wrote Robby Mook, Hillary’s current campaign manager, in an email to top Clinton aides, adding that John Podesta, Hillary’s current campaign chairman, had made the call.
Huma Abedin explained that Hillary would not be happy about it. “HRC very strongly did not want him to cancel that particular speech,” Abedin wrote. “I will have to tell her that [Bill] chose to cancel it, not that we asked.
Mook explained that, because Hillary was planning to launch her campaign on April 12th or 13th (she launched on the 12th), the optics of Bill giving a paid speech to a Wall Street bank could make for a “bad rollout.”
After consulting Hillary, Huma relayed that “HRC is reiterating her original position. She does not want him to cancel.”
Mook wrote back with a long explanation for why allowing Bill to go forward with the speech would be a “very consequential unforced error and could plague us for months,” mostly because voters in Iowa, the first primary state, have very low opinions about Wall Street.
Mook, however, did recognize “the sacrifice and disappointment that canceling will create,” presumably because of the Clintons’ insatiable quest for money. Both Bill and Hillary were pulling in about $200,000 to $300,000 per speech at the time.
Huma finally got through to Clinton, convincing her the right thing to do was to cancel the speech, after giving her a stretch of time — a “cool down period” — to think through her rage.
So not only is Hillary delusional in thinking she — with her connection to Wall Street and deep love affair of the money they fling her direction — can relate to the average American and their financial struggles, but also in believing she’s a balanced individual when it comes to managing frustration.
Anyone who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars per speech is just a tad out of touch with the common American, wouldn’t you agree?
Aside from that obvious fact, any individual who throws a massive temper tantrum over losing money from making a speech doesn’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to insulting someone else for their aggression and anger issues.
If you plan on calling someone out for something, you probably shouldn’t be practicing it yourself. That is called hypocrisy.
