A new book claims that the Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has a long history of beating up her husband, Bill Clinton, behind closed doors and terrorizing members of her staff, including Secret Service agents.
According to the controversial political strategist and consultant Roger Stone, in a new book titled The Clintons' War on Women, scheduled for release later this month, revelations about the Clintons' long history of marital discord are relevant information for the public at a time that Hillary Clinton is intensifying her campaign on the Democratic platform for president of the United States.
Stone told the New York Post, "There's only one Hillary Clinton: she's the Ice Queen. That's the real Hillary. The one you see in her campaign — that's the fake."
Although, Hillary Clinton has recently embarked on a mission to portray herself in a softer light, she has a volatile temperament that gives way too often to violent tantrums, during which she abuses her husband and terrorizes her personal staff, including Secret Service agents.
Stone, who recently left Donald Trump's campaign, claims that reports emanating from the couple's staff about Hillary's violent outbursts and physical abuse of her husband go back decades to the time when Bill was governor of Arkansas.
Hillary reportedly threw fearsome tantrums, during which she would fling objects at her husband, as well as scratch, claw, and slap him across the face.
Stone writes that "Hillary Clinton has a long history of being domestically violent with Bill. Hillary has beaten Bill, hit him with hard objects, scratched and clawed him, and made him bleed."
"Hillary has beaten Bill, hit him with hard objects, scratched and clawed him, and made him bleed."
As Stone acknowledges, the Clintons' turbulent domestic life over the decades is well documented. For instance, former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers alluded to Hillary's violent temper in the 1999 book Hillary's Choice by Gail Sheehy.
Violent confrontations between the couple began on Inauguration Day in 1993 when Hillary was heard screaming profanities at Bill.
When Hillary travelled in April 1993 to Little Rock, Arkansas, to see her father who was on his deathbed, Bill reportedly invited singer Barbra Streisand to the White House.
When Hillary learned that Streisand was at the White House, she flew back to Washington and confronted her husband in a rage. Staff reported that after a particularly violent session, they saw Bill with bleeding scratch marks that prompted awkward questions from White House reporters.
Concerning the occasion, Myers told Sheehy, author of Hillary's Choice, "I'm the idiot who said he'd cut himself shaving before I'd seen him. Then I saw him — it was a big scratch, clearly not a shaving cut. Barbra Streisand was clearly around at the time."
On another occasion, during the Monica Lewinsky scandal in 1999, staff members heard the noise of a big fight between the couple. Hillary reportedly slapped Bill across the face, leaving welts that everyone could see after the fight.
She was heard screaming, "You stupid bastard."
Earlier, when they lived in the Arkansas state house, with Bill as state governor, the couple had a violent confrontation after Hillary woke up in the night and found that Bill had slipped out of the House.
According to author Chris Andersen in the book American Evita: Hillary Clinton's Path to Power, when Bill returned from his presumed night caper, staff heard the couple fighting and later saw smashed glassware and dishes.
"When it [the fight] was over, staff members... [found] broken glass, smashed dishes and a cupboard door ripped off its hinges."
Hillary sometimes assaulted Bill in their official limo on the way to official functions.
According to Anderson, "[She would throw] yellow legal pads, files, briefing books, car keys... 'They'd be screaming at each other, real blue-in-the-face stuff... but when the car pulled up to their destination, it was all smiles and waving for the crowd.'"
"They'd be screaming at each other, real blue-in-the-face stuff... but when the car pulled up to their destination, it was all smiles and waving for the crowd."
Stone also cites unsavory details of Hillary's abuse of Secret Service agents reported in the book Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House by Gary Aldrich.
Hillary would swear and curse at Secret Service agents and once flew off in a rage when an agent refused to carry her luggage. She would scream and swear at them, demanding that they stay away from her.
"Just stay the f**k back — stay the f**k away from me! Don't come within 10 yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, okay?"
In her book The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House, Kate Andersen Bower, a former Bloomberg reporter, described an incident in which the couple's daughter, Chelsea, called Secret Service agents "pigs" while chatting with a friend on the phone.
According to Bower, when a Secret Service agent walked in while Chelsea was on the phone, she ended the phone conversation abruptly, saying, "Oh, I've got to go. The pigs are here."
The agent felt embarrassed and reprimanded her, saying, "Ms. Clinton, I want to tell you something. My job is to stand between you, your family, and a bullet. Do you understand?"
"Well, that's what my mother and father call you," Chelsea replied.
The violent quarrels between the couple continued after they left the White House. Domestic staff reported several occasions in which Hillary would attack Bill, throw household objects at him, and scream obscenities.
When Hillary decided to run for president, she was so worried about her "unlikeable" personality that she sought advice on how to project a more likeable personality.
When Bill advised her to project a more Gold Meir-like image rather than a Margaret Thatcher-like image, she reportedly snapped that she could not pretend to be someone she was not.
But she reportedly hired a coach to help her work on her facial expressions.
It is believed that her recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, in which she did an impression of GOP candidate Donald Trump, was part of efforts to project a more "likeable" image.
