The papers of the woman Hillary Clinton described as her “closest friend,” Diane Blaire, shine a less than positive light on the former First Lady during the years of her husband’s presidency. The papers were donated to the University of Arkansas following Blair’s death and have been made public. They include extensive notes from the Lewinsky scandal, including Hilllary calling Monica Lewinsky a “narcissistic loony toon." She regularly doubted female accusers and in the case of Lewinsky, defended her husband to her friend as having “a lapse, but to his credit he tried to break it off.” Blair notes that Hillary frustrated easily of “whiny women” who went after a politician she was working with to reform healthcare in 1993.
