'Vanity Fair' Probes Bill Clinton's 'Id' and Roving Eye -- He Offers Angry Response
NEW YORK An article for Vanity Fair by former New York Times reporter Todd Purdum, set to appear this week, alleges that former President Bill Clinton is consumed by "cavernous narcissism" and that a former aide tried to pull an "intervention" 18 months ago, disturbed by stories of Clinton allegedly fooling around with women on the road. The former president "rebuffed" that attempt.
The article is now online at the magazine's site and it titled "The Comeback Id."
Purdum is married to former Clinton press secretary DeeDee Myers.
Clinton's office responded angrily Sunday, charging, "A tawdry, anonymous quote-filled attack piece, published in this month’s Vanity Fair magazine regarding former President Bill Clinton repeats many past attacks on him, ignores much prior positive coverage, includes numerous errors, and ultimately breaks no new ground. It is, in short, journalism of personal destruction at its worst." Then if offers point-by-point rebuttal.
The article claims that Clinton, now 61, has gotten caught up in a world of rich friends in pursuit of making tens of millions of dollars since leaving office.
One former aide says: “There’s an anger in him that I find surprising. There seems to be an abiding anger in him, and not just the summer thunderstorms of old. He has been called into question repeatedly by top staff."
I said it before, Clinton is a pumphead.
