TwitPic Of Hillary Clinton Gets Salon Employee Fired, Report Claims

Hilary ClintonOn the ninth floor of New York City's luxury department store, Bergdorf Goodman, with a sweeping vista of Central Park, John Barrett Salon tends to the coiffures of women with money, or power, or both.

One of those women is Hillary Clinton, who was allegedly treated to a curtained-off area for her appointment a month ago, reports In Touch magazine. But that didn't stop a photo of the former Secretary of State from landing on the Internet, taken by an employee who was then promptly fired, the magazine claims.

"The salon prides itself on protecting its clients' privacy and had no choice but to let the person go," a source at the salon told the magazine. And Hilary Clinton's hair is practically a state secret, after all.

Zachary Anderson, the official spokesman for John Barrett, would neither confirm nor deny the firing, because "we don't comment on any of our clients' presence in the salon." In Touch's source is anonymous, and no news outlet has independently verified the report. AOL Jobs was also unable to locate the TwitPic of Clinton that supposedly resulted in a firing; there was no sign of the image when AOL Jobs searched Twitter.

But this purportedly indiscreet employee would be far from the first in recent years to lose a job for leaking details about a celebrity client:

The terminated employee deserves a trophy for good photography.
It's one of the best and seemingly impartial pics of Clinton without the obvious airbrushing of book jackets others in this level of scrutiny rely upon.

Oh yeah, Hillary C. last thing we heard of her was when she got a phone call at 3 in the morning. She woke up for a minute and screamed "WHAT DOES IT MATTER" rolled her fat ass over and went back to sleep. Her as commander in chief?? Sure, why not ? Look at the incompetent looser that lives in the white house now.

Hillary is a very smart, highly educated and focused individual who also happens to be a woman. And that I think is the crux of the problem. So many people, including women, are so insanely jealous of her accomplishments that they will do anything to ridicule this fine, accomplished woman. Shame on the whole lot of you.

Nothing to be jealous of there.....she's just a bitter hag, drunk on ambition. She has spent her entire adult life covering for and running interference for her sexual predator husband. There is absolutely nothing smart, liberated or accomplished about that.

Her accomplishments??? Please do tell us about them.
