While not the candidate’s words, the chit-chat among Hillary Clinton staffers and aides certainly lends itself to the atmosphere around the campaign.
And it doesn’t appear to be a pleasant atmosphere for underlings, according to a comment from Clinton adviser Neera Tanden, who is president of the George Soros-supported Center for American Progress.
In an exchange with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta published this week by WikiLeaks, Tanden was offering advice on Clinton appearing on morning shows when she seemed to tip her hand somewhat about the candidate’s temper.
“Have her beat the shit out of a punch doll (or maybe a staffer) …so she would be warm and charming in the interview,” Tandem wrote:
And while there are far more important revelations coming from the treasure trove of Clinton-related emails being posted online by WikiLeaks, social media users understand the exchange reflects on her temperament as president.

@MarkMaiwurds don’t think I’d want to be a staffer if she wins! What with WJC stalking them and HRC punching them! Safer in East Wing maybe?
