Hillary Clinton has a knack for getting angry and defensive when criticized behind closed doors, political commentator analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax TV.
In an interview Friday with host Joe Pagliarulo on "The Joe Pags Show," Morris — who worked for President Bill Clinton in the 1970s and again in the 1990s — said the current Democratic presidential candidate named Clinton has a bit of a temper.
"When you criticize her, she goes nuts. She becomes very defensive and angry, damn near throws you out of the room," Morris said. "So her staff learns not to cross her and they just do not subject her to the kind of criticism, and the kind of advice that normally candidates get."

Morris predicted Clinton will not necessarily show anger during Monday night's presidential debate, but Republican Donald Trump could rattle her enough that she deviates from her script.
"I think she'll get uptight and I think that she'll lie and I think she'll try to sell stuff that isn't true that people will see isn't true, and I think that that's going to be the defect," Morris said.
Morris noted that Trump needs to steer clear of the offensive version of himself that he often displays on the campaign trail if he wants to fare well Monday at Hofstra University.
"And it's kind of easy to do that because he really isn't that way," Morris said.
