    Amy Klobuchar has laid the grounds for a presidential run on an image of “Minnesota nice.”

    But behind the doors of her Washington, DC, office, the Minnesota Democrat ran a workplace controlled by fear, anger, and shame, according to interviews with eight former staffers, one that many employees found intolerably cruel. She demeaned and berated her staff almost daily, subjecting them to bouts of explosive rage and regular humiliation within the office, according to interviews and dozens of emails reviewed by BuzzFeed News.

    That anger regularly left employees in tears, four former staffers said. She yelled, threw papers, and sometimes even hurled objects; one aide was accidentally hit with a flying binder, according to someone who saw it happen, though the staffer said the senator did not intend to hit anyone with the binder when she threw it.

    “I cried. I cried, like, all the time,” said one former staffer.

    Looks like this top dem and presidential candidate has an anger issue.

    Also has the highest staff turnover in congress.

    Her violent bouts and mean comments remind me about reports from the Hillary campaign.

    Could this end up being an issue for her?

    She sounds unfit for office. Nobody should have to work in such an environment

    Klobuchar sounds too moderate for the rabid left. If she has been naughty I can help her with that. Does she like to be spanked?

    I'll say it right now: If we get posters saying - hey so what? Who cares? about this - you KNOW they're trying to get people to look away from the fact that a potential Dem nominee crashed and burned, embarrassing the DNC and their brand as a result. This is as opposed to discussing the pros and cons of her actually running and/or her record.

    She sounds like Hillary Lite with her anger issues. And this won't be easy to dismiss when you have the NYT and HuffPo verifying her temper.

    She is probably the brightest of any of the dem candidates. I am in almost total disagreement with most of what she stands for though.

    Trump for 2020 in other words(or a Republican.) We knew, based on the lack of youth political leadership in the Democratic Caucus that this was going to be a sad field for Democrats, but it's really turning out to be very sad. At this point, they'd need more Trump gaffes in mouth.

    That's not setting the bar very high though.

    She already has all of the classic signs of somebody who is going to get lost in the ether of a very large field of candidates.

    With dems though, that bar is low, imo.

    Very, very low.

    You are right. She's the nice one who appears to be more bipartisan than the angry far left. It would not be wise to under estimate her. She has some republican friends but none who support Trump. It is best to let her own party take her down. Trump should not expend energy on her. That only galvanizes dems who no matter what stick together.

    Not to worry, being unfit or being outed as a scoundrel is like a merit badge for Dems.

    The Dems voted for Hillary at the DNC convention even after they all knew she cheated in the primaries and was fainting and having seizures on a regular basis....

    No big deal to those who could care less about logic, ethics and competence.

    Hardly. She doesn't fit the profile. She has no celebrity status and has made some enemies in the music industry and silicon valley. She's a liability for progressives.
