The Clinton’s reputation is becoming increasingly clearer as more and more stories come forward portraying their ruthless and wrathful mentality. Proving just that is South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn who recently released that Bill gave him a ring at about 2 a.m. one morning to chew him out for Hillary’s poor performance.
The incident allegedly occurred back in 2008 when Hillary was taking a run at the Oval Office in competition with Barack Obama. Needless to say, at that time, Hillary wasn’t quite connecting with the black population in South Carolina, and such a fact prompted some former presidential attention.
According to Clyburn, “My Blackberry vibrated, I looked at my watch, it was 2:15 in the morning. A powerful voice on the other end said, ‘If you b*****ds want a fight, you d*mn well will get one.’ Apparently Clyburn promised to stay neutral in the race – a promise he claims he remained faithful to until June of 2008 – but Bill Clinton thought otherwise as his wife took a dip in the polls.
Clyburn further noted that Clinton held him, “personally responsible for his wife’s poor showing among South Carolina black voters.” During the phone call, Clinton, “exploded, used the word “b*****d” again, and accused me of causing her defeat and injecting race into the contest.”
The Rep. didn’t take the call lying down however as after the incident, Clyburn came out swinging and even spoke out against the former president during an interview. “When he was going through his impeachment problems, it was the black community that bellied up to the bar,” Clyburn mentioned. “I think black folks feel strongly that that this is a strange way for President Clinton to show his appreciation.”
So what do you think – is this just the kind of behavior we’ve come to expect? Are the Clintons becoming exposed for their aggressive and threatening tactics in order to ensure compliance? Let us know in the comments below.
