'like" is required for comparing nouns, "clients" to "idiots".
Also, "like" is followed by nouns, so A is out.

Straight C

"like" in the first and "as if" in the second part.

will go with C.

"like" in the first part is appropriate as its comparing nouns. "Like" in the second part should be replaced with "as"
