Clinton Aide to Reporter: ‘F--k Off’

It’s just not a good look when a government official tells the press to “Fuck Off,” let alone to do so in writing. Unfortunately for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her longtime aide and personal spokesman Philippe Reines reportedly did just that in a heated email exchange with a BuzzFeed reporter. BuzzFeed’s Michael Hastings emailed Reines, asking him a series of questions about the State Department’s handling of the security situation in Benghazi and about Reines’s “offensive” attack on CNN. When Hastings probed for answers “that aren’t bullshit for a change,” Reines lost his cool, calling Hastings an “unmitigated asshole,” before telling him to “have a good day. And by good day, I mean Fuck Off.”
