Tipsy Hillary spills real feelings: Obama’s a joke with ‘no hand on the (expletive) tiller,’ book says

In vino, veritas?

A combination of booze and bad blood bubbled up into a boatload of bile when Hillary Clinton got asked her real feelings about Barack Obama, according to the new book that’s blowing the lid off the “Team of Rivals” image Obama and Clinton projected for four years.

According to the New York Post, the gossipy tell-all “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas,” includes the story of the night Hillary spilled her guts during a wine-infused gathering at a café in Westchester, N.Y. in May 2013.

“When her friends asked Hillary to tell them what she thought — really thought — about the president she had served for four draining years, she lit into Obama with a passion that surprised them all,” “Blood Feud” author Edward Klein wrote, according to the Post.

“The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered, and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. That’s the story of the Obama presidency. No hand on the f–king tiller…

“The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the Justice Department’s seizure of AP phone records and [Fox reporter] James Rosen’s e-mails — all these scandals. Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did.”

And in a damning echo of conservative criticisms, Clinton called Obama’s foreign policy “incompetent and feckless.”

“Obama has turned into a joke,” Clinton said, according to Klein.

Klein’s book has been making headlines for a week with its allegations of a deep, visceral dislike between America’s two leading liberal families, but has been pretty much unchallenged in the public square, giving the impression that there’s more than a grain of truth to what he wrote.

Or as the old saying goes in politics and organized crime, “Never sue. They might prove it.”
