While in the White House. Hillary Clinton Hit Bill in the Head with a Book and Bloodied Him

In a new book,The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House by political journalist Kate Andersin Brower, we learn that during the height of President Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal, a White House maid entered the bedroom to clean and was shocked to find the president and first lady’s bed covered in blood, reports NyPo.

The blood belonged to the president, who said publicly that he “hurt himself running into the bathroom door in the middle of the night.”

But the White House resident staff believed differently. As one worker told  Brower, “We’re pretty sure [Hillary Clinton] clocked him with a book.”

Browser interviewed more than 100 former members of the notoriously secretive White House residence staff for the book...

“The couple sometimes got into pitched battles, shocking the staff with their vicious cursing, and sometimes they went through periods of stoney silence,” writes Brower.

Florist Ronn Payne recalls seeing two butlers listening through the door at a “vicious” argument in the West Sitting Hall.

“All of a sudden, he heard the first lady bellow, ‘goddamn bastard!’ at the president — and then he heard someone throw a heavy object across the room. The rumor among the staff was that she threw a lamp.”

The battles increased throughout the Lewinsky scandal, and White House staffers had a front-row seat.

While the public didn’t learn of Clinton’s affair until January 1998, staffers at the White House had been watching it happen since 1995.

“The butlers saw the president and Lewinsky in the family movie theater, and the two of them were seen together so frequently that the workers started letting one another know when they’d had a Lewinsky sighting,” Brower writes.

The president paid for his indiscretions not just publicly, but at home as well.

“For three or four months in 1998,” Brower writes, “the president slept on a sofa in a private study attached to their bedroom on the second floor.”



  1. Actually, this makes her look better, I think. Well, not PHYSICALLY, of course.

  2. Hillary didn't really see herself as "co-president". She was just kidding when she said "we are the president". She actually viewed herself as the president.
