Team Hillary suffered a devastating defeat in November, when many were seen sobbing with grief after President-elect Trump pulled off an historic upset, and now they’re lashing out against one of the campaign’s most influential members, Huma Abedin.
Abedin has served as a right hand to Hillary ever since the Clintons took her under their wing when they were in the White House. According to insiders, she wielded as much power as Hillary throughout the campaign, and nothing happened without her knowing about it.
But now, in defeat, members of the campaign believe it was Huma who was responsible for Hillary’s loss. In a shocking expose from Vanity Fair, former advisers to Hillary ripped Huma to shreds for enjoying celebrity status too much and being suffocating to her boss to the point she wouldn’t embrace new ideas.
The Daily Caller has more:
“I really don’t give a shit about what happens to Huma to be honest with you,” one adviser said.
“She was enjoying the red carpet and enjoying the photo spreads much too much in my opinion,” another added. “She enjoyed being a celebrity too much.”
The insider said suggestions for new campaign tactics “fell on deaf ears” because of Abedin.
“The real anger is toward Hillary’s inner circle,” the source continued.
“They reinforced all the bad habits. Right away it was either regarded as an intrusion or a naïve suggestion or maybe someone has an agenda. And so people just stopped bothering. Where in most presidential campaigns the circle grows broader and broader, hers grew smaller and smaller.”
Ouch. They’re apparently quite unhappy, although their anger may be entirely misplaced.
Odd are, the reason that the circle grew smaller and smaller was to protect Hillary as more and more of her illicit acts were exposed. As the campaign progressed, so did numerous FBI investigations, which likely caused Hillary and those closest to her to push people away for fear they may discover something incriminating about the former secretary of state.
After all, the Clintons are known for their paranoia and it’s no secret they’ve been involved with some extremely shady dealings, so to think they’d shun outsiders to protect themselves would be a stretch at all.
