Conservatives weren’t the only politicos that believed Hillary Clinton was incompetant. In a new book called “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen report that President Obama thought that Clinton committed “political malpractice” in the way she handled her email server issue.

A new book reveals that former President Barack Obama, while publicly supporting Clinton to succeed him, was privately critical of the way she handled the email issue.
“He couldn’t understand what possessed Hillary to set up the private e-mail server, and her handling of the scandal — obfuscate, deny, and evade — amounted to political malpractice,” Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen reported in ‘Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.’
Parnes and Allen’s book also reports that former President Bill Clinton didn’t think his wife should issue an apology for the email debacle. He thought instead she should explain why she didn’t believe her email server was a problem. On election night, the former president compared his wife’s loss to Brexit.
“I guess it’s real,” he said.
After calling Trump to concede the race, Clinton phoned Obama.
“Mr. President, I’m sorry,” Clinton said, according to the book.
Ms. Clinton was ultimately exonerated of this allegation by FBI Director James Comey.
