All the pundits and so-called political “experts” believed Hillary Clinton was on a glide path to the Presidency.
In fact, many saw the election as just a mere formality, and then America could finally get on with her coronation.
But someone forgot to tell the voters.
And reports say Hillary Clinton did not handle it well.
Rumors have been floating around for decades about Hillary’s uncontrollable temper.
A former Secret Service agent even detailed her bouts of rage in a book.
So it wasn’t surprising when reports surfaced that she erupted into violence towards her staff after it became apparent she would lose.
CNN reporter tells me Hillary became physically violent towards Robby Mook and John Podesta around midnight; had to be briefly restrained.

And there are more accounts of her erratic behavior.
Conservative author Ed Klein claimed Hillary was crying uncontrollably after the election results were clear.
“Hillary Clinton “couldn’t stop crying” once she learned of her loss to Donald Trump on Tuesday, best-selling conservative author Ed Klein told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.
“About 6:30 this morning she called an old friend,” he began on “The Steve Malzberg Show” in an interview. “She was crying, inconsolably.
“She couldn’t stop crying.
“Her friend said — her female friend from way, way, back — said that it was even hard to understand what she was saying, she was crying so hard.
“This is Hillary we’re talking about,” Klein said.
“Eventually,” he continued, “her friend said she could make out that she was blaming James Comey, the director of the FBI, for her loss — and this I don’t understand exactly — and the president of the United States for not doing enough.”
Klein said his source then asked further about President Barack Obama.
“She said: ‘Well, she felt, Hillary felt, that the president could have stopped Comey a long time ago, because that’s what [former President] Bill [Clinton] said.”
On one level, Hillary’s rage is understandable.
For months the press reported on polls that showed her locked into winning the election.
But the media and pollsters existed in a self-reinforcing echo chamber where the only feedback was what they wanted to hear.
So the media lied to the public about the true state of the race.
But when the votes were counted, it was clear the pollsters – and Hillary Clinton’s campaign team – misread both the mood and the makeup of the electorate.
Many conservatives are now taking great satisfaction in the irony that the Clinton campaign made Donald Trump’s temperament their main line of attack.
Luckily, enough voters in key states rejected the argument.
And if the many decades of accounts are to be believed, it sounds like America dodged a major bullet by not electing a candidate with an allegedly hair-trigger temper who would have had access to our nuclear codes.
