Hillary Clinton Meltdown After Matt Lauer Interview-Unproven!

Summary of eRumor:

Hillary Clinton had a meltdown after Matt Lauer pressed her about her use of a private email server during a presidential forum.

The Truth:

Reports that Hillary Clinton had a “meltdown” after Matt Lauer’s primetime interview with her during the presidential forum are unproven.

The rumors come from an article posted at the fringe website Victurus Libertas under the headline, “Temper! Temper! Hillary Goes on Rampage for Over an Hour – Throwing Glass at Staffers Head.”

The article cites a number of credible reports in which liberals had “meltdowns” over Matt Lauer’s line of questioning with Clinton, and Lauer’s failure to correct the record in his interview with Donald Trump — but the article doesn’t cite any credible sources to prove that Clinton herself melted down or threw a glass at a staffer’s head.

In one instance, the article linked to a Politico report that supposedly referenced a Clinton meltdown in which she demanded that Lauer be fired and could be heard threatening NBC executives — but this excerpt doesn’t actually appear in the Politico story:

Hillary’s meltdown included throwing a water glass at a staffer- narrowly missing her head, and demanding Matt Lauer be fired!  She was overheard threatening executives at NBC saying “If I lose, we all go down and that Fascist Fuck will have us swinging from nooses! What the fuck is wrong with you idiots?”

The article then cited unnamed sources that supposedly said Clinton “screamed that she wanted Matt taken off the October debate” and went on an expletive-ridden tirade about campaign staffer Donna Brazile. Again, these reports don’t cite any sources or provide any proof whatsoever that Clinton had a meltdown after her interview with Lauer. That’s why we’re reporting this one as unproven.
