Move over Amy Klobuchar! Via Politico:

Interviews with 12 people who worked for Williamson during her 2020 presidential campaign paint a picture of a boss who can be verbally and emotionally abusive.

Those interviewed say the best-selling author and spiritual adviser subjected her employees to unpredictable, explosive episodes of anger. They said Williamson could be cruel and demeaning to her staff and that her behavior went far beyond the typical stress of a grueling presidential cycle.

β€œIt would be foaming, spitting, uncontrollable rage,” said a former staffer, who, like most people that spoke with POLITICO, was granted anonymity because of their concern about being sued for breaking non-disclosure agreements. β€œIt was traumatic. And the experience, in the end, was terrifying.”

Williamson would throw her phone at staffers, according to three of those former staffers. Her outbursts could be so loud that two former aides recounted at least four occasions when hotel staff knocked on her door to check on the situation. In one instance, Williamson got so angry about the logistics of a campaign trip to South Carolina that she felt was poorly planned that she pounded a car door until her hand started to swell, according to four former staffers. Ultimately, she had to go to an urgent care facility, they said. All 12 former staffers interviewed recalled instances where Williamson would scream at people until they started to cry.

As much as I agree with her on most political issues, this report is probably true, and she probably is a complete lunatic. The most soft-spoken, spiritual, and graceful public figures are always the biggest psychopaths behind closed doors. And you know what? She should just let loose and be a total crazy woman on the campaign trail. Punch a staffer in public. Spit on the audience at one of her rallies. OK, she doesn’t have rallies, she speaks to like three people at a time in coffee shops. Spit on them though! It might get her more votes. Americans can identify with this behavior.
