Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is not only still bitter about her 2016 election loss, she is still apparently very angry with socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Clinton makes her feelings clear about Sanders in a new documentary about her career, saying that “nobody likes him” and “nobody wants to work with him.”
In the interview with the outlet about Hulu’s forthcoming “Hillary,” the former secretary of state didn’t let up about her 2016 primary opponent, refusing to commit to endorse and campaign for Sanders should he win the Democratic nomination this cycle.
She goes even further in the documentary, claiming that Sanders “got nothing done.” and calling him “a career politician.”
“It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it,” she added.
She also made it clear she may not ever endorse him, even if he secures the Democratic nomination and takes on President Trump in the 2020 general election.
“I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women,” Clinton complained.
“And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it,” she added.
When asked if a woman can become president, Clinton said: “I think [that sentiment] is untrue, which we should all say loudly. I mean, I did get more votes both in the primary, by about 4 million, and in the general election, by about 3 million.”
“That’s particularly true with what’s going on right now with the Bernie campaign having gone after Elizabeth [Warren] with a very personal attack on her. Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern. If it were a one-off, you might say, ‘OK, fine.’ But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me,” Clinton said.
“I just think people need to pay attention because we want, hopefully, to elect a president who’s going to try to bring us together, and not either turn a blind eye, or actually reward the kind of insulting, attacking, demeaning, degrading behavior that we’ve seen from this current administration,” she added.
