Hillary once had a father of four fired because he helped Barbara Bush with a computer problem. The man was a White House usher, Christopher B. Emery. Barbara Bush had contacted Emery when she was having problems setting up a laptop because Emery had helped the former first lady with computer problems a couple times previously.
For offering this assistance to a former White House resident, Hillary successfully demanded that Emery be fired. The family man was unable to find another job for a year.
Hillary hates the military and didn’t want officers wearing their military uniforms in her presence. “She didn’t appear to like law enforcement or the military,” former Secret Service agent Lloyd Bulman told Kessler.
“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,” the agent said.
She didn’t want to see police officers in uniform.
“How do you explain that to the police?” a disgusted Secret Service agent asked. “She wanted state troopers and local police to wear suits and stay in unmarked cars. If there were an incident, that could pose a big problem. People don’t know police are in the area unless officers wear uniforms and drive police cars. If they are unaware of a police presence, people are more likely to get out of control.”
The former secretary of state also did not want to see American military officers in their uniforms.
“Hillary didn’t like the military aides wearing their uniforms around the White House,” yet another Secret Service agent recalled. “She asked if they would wear business suits instead. The uniform’s a sign of pride, and they’re proud to wear their uniform. I know that the military was actually really offended by it.”
Hillary once yelled at a guy for changing a light bulb while she was at the White House. Kessler recounts an incident involving an electrician who was changing a light bulb inside the White House. Clinton dressed this man down because she didn’t want any work done inside the 54,896-square-foot residence while she was on the premises.
“She caught the guy on a ladder doing the lightbulb,” Franette McCulloch, an assistant White House pastry chef during the Clinton administration, told the author. “He was a basket case.”
Hillary demanded White House workers never speak to her and hide behind the drapes when she appeared. It was a standing rule, according to Kessler.
“No one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” former FBI agent Coy Copeland told Kessler. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”
“We were basically told, the Clintons don’t want to see you, they don’t want to hear you, get out of the way,” an ex-Secret Service agent told the author. “If Hillary was walking down a hall, you were supposed to hide behind drapes used as partitions. Supervisors would tell us, ‘Listen, stand behind this curtain. They’re coming,’ or ‘Just stand out of the way, don’t be seen.”‘
Hillary once insulted a man by asking him if he shopped at J.C. Penney. The 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner who is running as a compassionate voice for everyday Americans had the encounter in a hallway of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, Kessler reports. The subject of her ire was a member of independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigative team.
The man addressed Hillary, saying “Good morning, Mrs. Clinton,” FBI agent Copeland told Kessler.
“She jumped all over him,” Copeland told the author. “‘How dare you? You people are just destroying my husband.’ It was that vast right-wing conspiracy rant. Then she had to tack on something to the effect of ‘And where do you buy your suits? Penney’s?'”
The embarrassed Starr investigator told Copeland the story a few weeks after the incident occurred. “He said, ‘I was wearing the best suit I owned,'” Copeland said.
