“We sort of got the last laugh. It was kind of like payback: You’re treating us like s–t. Hey karma is a b*tch! We were smiling to ourselves,” the agent told The Post on Wednesday.
But Clinton, who frequently behaved like a diva-in-chief, according to the agent, made it worse by pointing the finger at her detail for the mishap.
“She blamed us for breaking her elbow, saying it was our fault and we could have prevented that. She’s bad news,” the agent said.
The agent’s account backed up FBI documents released this week that showed Clinton’s protective detail despised her for treating them with contempt.
“When I first met her, we were given specific instructions: don’t look at her, don’t look at her general direction and if you need to talk to her, keep it short and stay out of her way,” the agent told The Post.”
As PJ Media reported, Clinton was so unpopular with State Department security personnel that some of them refused to work for her. According to FBI documents released about Clinton’s tenure, many State Department security agents either left the agency or asked to be reassigned.
In contrast, the Post notes, “the security detail loved former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Clinton’s predecessor who served under George W. Bush.”
Condoleezza Rice was a true diplomat. She built a lot of rapport with her security detail. She would talk to you about family, football, she was one of the boys,” the agent said. “Hillary didn’t care. If you weren’t in her little inner circle — Huma Abedin or Cheryl Mills – she wanted nothing to do with you.”
Edward Klein, the author of two anti-Hillary books, The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House and Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary, was on Fox and Friends earlier this week to discuss the FBI report. He said Secret Service agents also hated Hillary when she was the first lady, because she was so rude and contemptuous.”
