Fox News Commentator: Bill Clinton Plotted Using His Own Death to Help Hillary Become President
An author and Fox News commentator that the network insists has “impeccable” sources alleged that former President Bill Clinton has considered using his own death to help his wife win the presidential election.
Ed Klein, the author of Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas, told Fox & Friends that Bill told those close to him that his death would be worth “a couple of million votes.”
“They always say it’s not true,” Klein said. “People ask me, ‘How do you get these sources to talk to you?’ And there’s a couple of answers. One is they like to boast about their connections to people at high levels. Number two, they want to get their story out.”
Of course, many of the stories aren’t…book worthy.
One of the stories he shared on Fox was one he allegedly learned from household help after the Obamas vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard.
“They told me that the Obamas had separate bedrooms, that the president smoked in bed, that he ate Murdick’s Fudge in bed. It’s an amazing story,” Klein said.
Is it that amazing?
Then he turned to the Clintons and what happened after Bill was diagnosed with a heart condition.
“And he’s discussed with Hillary, according to people who were in the room with them when he did it, what would happen if he died. What should Hillary do? And what is said is, ‘Hillary, you should put on widow’s weeds, dress in black, and it would be worth a couple of million votes,” Klein said.
“I can hear him saying that,” host Steve Doocy said.
“You almost can, for sure,” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck chimed in.
Among other topics, Klein has also suggested that Hillary Clinton is a lesbian and “was raped by then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton when they conceived their daughter Chelsea.”
His 2005 book, The Truth About Hillary, was universally panned as “poorly researched, poorly written, poorly sourced.”
