Clinton Spokesman Blasts Ed Klein’s Latest Book On Hillary: It’s ‘Bullsh*t’

A spokesman for Hillary Clinton recently tore into author Ed Klein’s latest book about the former secretary of state, describing the book and Klein’s work about Clinton as “bullshit,” according to the New York Post.

Klein is known for publishing outlandish and critical pieces about the Clintons. His new book, “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” will be released on Monday.

In an excerpt of the book highlighted by the New York Post on Wednesday, Klein says that Hillary Clinton told President Obama to “call off your f–king dogs,” referring to investigations into her email usage. Klein cited a Clinton source and Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, according to the Post.

When asked about Klein’s claims by the Post, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill slammed the book and Klein’s “bullshit.”

“Another book? Someone should do a book about Ed,” Merrill told the Post. “They could call it ‘Bulls–t: The Problem with Anything Ed Klein Writes.'”

“The only true thing about him is his consistent and utter lack of a relationship with the facts,” he continued. “He has more hair than credibility, and the man is bald. So we’re not going to get down in the gutter with him and his outrageous fabrications.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
