It’s been reported many times that protecting Hillary Clinton is the most hated job in the U.S. Secret Service. Kate Andersen Brower, in her book, “Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House,” gives us more detail into exactly why that is. In the excerpts she published just yesterday in Politico, it seems even first daughter Chelsea got into the act of mistreating her protectors:
One day, according to Payne, he was walking through the second-floor private kitchen when an agent walked in behind him waiting to escort Chelsea to Sidwell Friends, the private school she attended in northwest Washington. Chelsea was on the phone.
“Oh, I’ve got to go,” she told her friend. “The pigs are here.”
The agent turned “crimson,” Payne recalls. “Ms. Clinton, I want to tell you something. My job is to stand between you, your family, and a bullet. Do you understand?”
She replied: “Well, that’s what my mother and father call you.”
