Ainsley Earhardt: Clinton’s Staffers Told Me Not Appearing on Fox & Friends ‘Was One of Her Biggest Mistakes’

As the sun rose this Friday morning in October 2017, Fox & Friends was interviewing author Ed Klein on failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her relationship with husband Bill.

Klein — whose first book on the Clintons was so awful it made the New York Post’s John Podhoretz want to “drive stakes through [his] eyes so [he] wouldn’t have to suffer through another word” — discussed his latest report that Bill hated Hillary’s post-election book “What Happened”.

Klein detailed the Clintons’ disagreements during the presidential campaign, including reports that Bill wanted Hillary to spend time in Rust Belt states, despite the candidate’s reluctance.

“Well we asked her time and time again to come on our show, and she wouldn’t do it,” Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt added. “And some of her people, the people that have worked for her a long time that I’m friends with, said that was one of her biggest mistakes.

“Because we have a lot of independents that watch our show, and she could have gotten those votes.”

Klein continued to claim that the Clintons no longer live together, and don’t have much to talk about now that the campaign is through. He then discussed Hillary’s relationship with Harvey Weinstein, and claimed he “knew about [the allegations] years ago.”

The Fox & Friends couch wrapped up the segment with a bashing of the Clinton Foundation, for old times’ sake, and Klein previewed his upcoming book, entitled “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump”.

His last three books were “Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation,” “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” and “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas.”
