An upcoming book from New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick is shedding new light on Hillary Clinton’s disastrous 2016 campaign; claiming the doomed nominee went on an expletive filled tirade during her debate practice.
Excerpts from ‘Chasing Hillary’ obtained by the Guardian show the former Secretary of State lashing out at advisors and aides as she prepared for her high-stakes debates with then-candidate Donald Trump; blasting her opponent as a “disgusting” human.
“Aides understood that in order to keep it all together onstage, Hillary sometimes needed to unleash on them in private,” Chozick writes.
“‘You want authentic, here it is!’ she’d yelled in one prep session, followed by a f***-laced fusillade about what a ‘disgusting’ human being Trump was and how he didn’t deserve to even be in the arena,” she adds.
The tell-all exposé also reveals Clinton’s initial reaction upon learning of Donald Trump’s inevitable election; telling top aides she knew “they were never going to let me be president.”

UNHINGED HILLARY: I'm the 'Paula Revere' of Russian Collusion in 2016
Hillary Clinton took her excuses tour to Late Night TV on Tuesday, where she referred to herself as the “Paula Revere” of Russian collusion; sounding the alarm on the Kremlin’s influence in the 2016 presidential election.
The former democratic nominee stopped by the CBS “Late Show” Tuesday evening, promoting her new book and blaming a host of outside factors for her surprise November defeat to Donald Trump.
“It wasn’t easy writing this book,” Clinton said. “Trying to come to grips -as I write in the book- everything from sexism and misogyny to voter suppression, to the unusual behavior of the former director of the FBI and the Russians.”
“I believe so strongly that they think they succeeded in messing with our democracy and I just can’t abide that,” said Clinton.
“Do you think that they succeeded?” asked host Stephen Colbert.
“Yes, I do. Influencing voters and therefor influencing opinion. I think it’s becoming clearer and clearer. I don’t know what the Congressional investigation, the special counsel investigation is going to find, I’m going to wait for that,” she added. “I don’t think anybody can with a straight-face say that the Russians did not set out to influence our election, and they did so.”
“I am saying as clearly as I can, I feel like I’m a bit of a ‘Paula Revere,’ I’m trying to sound the alarm on this,” said Hillary. “Putin really doesn’t like democracy, he thinks it’s an inconvenient, messy process and he doesn’t like us. He wants to destabilize our country, sow doubt about our democracy.”
