Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign was defined by the secrets she hid from the American people.
Clinton tried to conceal an illegal private email server and schemed to cover up a serious illness on the campaign trail.
But there was one dark secret she managed to keep buried that you will not believe.
New York Times reporter Amy Chozick’s “Chasing Hillary” book gives a peek behind the curtain of Clinton’s doomed campaigns.
Chozick is a certified Hillary worshipper who cried when Trump lost the election.
Her book – however – shows a dark side to Hillary.
It reveals she may consume alcohol to excess.
National Review’s Kyle Smith writes America was spared the prospect of electing a President whose alcohol consumption may have put the nation at risk:
“One intriguing aspect of Amy Chozick’s reporting in Chasing Hillary is that Chozick wrote a story for the New York Times that never ran that celebrated Clinton’s convivial spirit (or, if you like, her boozing). After Clinton’s certain victory, the Times was prepared to run a full slate of stories exploring various aspects of its darling. In contrast, reports Chozick, as Donald Trump’s victory became increasingly probable on Election Night, an editor in the newsroom was heard to shout, “We got nothing,” meaning no stories prepared for the eventuality of Trump’s victory…
… Chozick’s unpublished color piece on Clinton’s drinking was meant to illustrate that Clinton was not the starchy, purse-lipped frump of popular perception but a freewheeling good-time gal. Why couldn’t the story have run during the campaign rather than after it? That seems obvious. The factual details were such that they might have made readers question the Times’s spin that Clinton’s drinking habits reflected well on her. The attentive reader will wonder whether Clinton has a drinking problem. Chozick says that Clinton would have been “the booziest president since FDR” and “enjoys a cocktail — or three — more than most previous presidents.” Chozick isn’t saying that Clinton has three cocktails but that she has three cocktails more than a man. So: five cocktails, then? Five cocktails for a woman is generally said to have the same effect as ten cocktails on a man. Would you want a man who regularly put away ten cocktails to be president?
Clinton’s career in elected office is obviously over, and Chozick no longer has any reason to worry about whether she is ingratiating herself enough with Clinton’s handlers to assure her continued access. Instead, she abruptly stops the anecdote here and moves on to such matters as what Jon Bon Jovi was wearing while hanging out on the Clinton campaign plane. It makes Chozick look protective of Clinton rather than dispassionate.
But it is fair to ask whether the nation came close to electing a president who regularly drinks to excess, and it is fair to ask of the nation’s press corps how much information about Clinton’s drinking they withheld from the public. Given that, according to Chozick, virtually everyone embedded with the Clinton campaign was a woman who was excited about the prospect of her winning, it’s also fair to ask of the major media’s assignment editors whether the reporters they put on the Clinton beat were even close to being objective observers.”
Thankfully, the world will be spared a potentially alcohol impaired President Clinton blundering America into a crisis.
