Should Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton win the election and become the next president of the United States, she will not be a stranger to the staff at the White House.
PageSix reports that former Secret Service officer Gary Byrne remembers her all too well.
As a member of the team protecting Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, Byrne was stationed outside the door to the Oval Office.
He remembers Hillary Clinton as having a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality and said the staff was afraid of her sudden outbursts, which he described as “explosive — and even physical.”
Byrne has written a book in which he asserts Clinton is too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six..
In his introduction to the book, titled Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate, Byrne writes, “What I saw in the 1990s sickened me.”
He writes that the personality of the former first lady would suddenly change from friendly to raging, and staff members lived in terror of her next tirade.
The book points out times when Clinton would shout foul language at the president as well as staff members. There were even times when Secret Service officers discussed the possibility that they would need to protect the president from physical attacks from the first lady.
Byrne writes of the candidate, “Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office.”
“From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.”
This revelation into Clinton’s temperament may serve to boost presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign.
Crisis of Character, which will be released June 28, is already atop Amazon’s best-seller list thanks to preorders.
