Ex-Clinton staffer says Hillary should 'shut up and go home' amid talk of her possible entry into the 2020 race
Doug Schoen made the statement about his former boss while appearing on Fox News' 'The Ingraham Angle.'
Ex-adviser of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Doug Schoen, on Tuesday commented on increasing calls for her to make another presidential bid for 2020, saying that the Democrat should "go home" and "shut" her mouth.
Schoen made the statement while appearing on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." The show's host Laura Ingraham, during the segment, played a clip from BBC Radio 5 Live showing Clinton being asked whether she was going to run again for the 2020 presidential election.
Clinton, in response to the question, repeatedly said "no," and added: "I, as I say, never, never. Never say never."
"I will certainly tell you I'm under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans," Clinton said in the clip televised on the show.
Ingraham, after the clip's conclusion, asked Schoen: "Doug, what's your advice to your former boss?" The former first lady's ex-adviser responded with: "My advice would be: Go home. Close the door. Shut your mouth. Be quiet. And just forget about this."
"I mean, she lost when she shouldn't have lost. Everything she said recently has been nuts," Schoen added.
One of Clinton's other former advisers, Dick Morris, had recently suggested that the only reason Hillary Clinton has not announced her bid yet is because of former Vice President and 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden.
Morris, while speaking to radio host John Catsimatidis, said: "But she's hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad. She's got to wait until Biden drops out because he's obviously next in line for it, and if he goes away, there's an opening for her."
"She feels entitled to do it. She feels compelled to do it. She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it. But she's hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad," he added.
