It is unclear to me why Hillary Clinton would want to purposefully try to drive a wedge between Bernie Sanders supporters and the Democrat Party itself, again, right when Bernie is on the rise.
Surely she doesn’t think that her attacking Bernie is going to make people like him less?
Clinton is one of the most hated figures in America, and her not liking you makes other people like you more.
I guess she had to say this to The Hollywood Reporter because if she said it to the New York Times or the Washington Post or any other mainstream outlet, they would just delete the tape and not let the comments see the light of day.
Hillary Clinton blasts Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new documentary, saying “nobody likes him” and declining in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to say whether she would endorse and campaign for him if he’s the Democratic 2020 nominee.
“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton says in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
The comments in the documentary are aimed directly at his core campaign appeal — that he’s a political outsider pitching revolutionary change.
The new round of lacerating attacks come less than two weeks before the Iowa caucuses, which Clinton narrowly won in 2016 and where Sanders is locked in a tight four-way race this year. They also have the potential to reignite a divisive, four-year-old fight that has never fully faded from Democrats’ minds. More recently, and in comments since her loss to President Donald Trump, Clinton has blamed Sanders for damaging her campaign.
In response to Clinton’s remarks, Sanders said in a statement that his focus was President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
“Together, we are going to go forward and defeat the most dangerous president in American history,” Sanders said.
In the THR interview, Clinton also pointedly questions the “culture” around Sanders’ campaign, from “his leadership team” to “his online Bernie Bros.”
“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 said, before suggesting that Sanders himself was complicit in promoting those voices.
Yeah see, she’s trying to back up the narrative that Bernie is a “sexist” – the narrative created by CNN and Elizabeth Warren recently.
Bernie’s response makes him seem like much more of a responsible adult and a relatable person than the whining old wench Hillary Clinton, who still blames him, along with everyone else on planet earth, for her loss in 2016.
He said: “On a good day, my wife likes me.”
Much more endearing than Nasty Hillary, we have to admit.
Of course, the weird media is shilling for Hillary, yet again, and acting like it isn’t bizarre for her to come out and say something like this.
Just look at these fat women on The View.
If Hillary wanted to influence the current political struggle in the Democrat Party in order to help the establishment neocon shills, she would have to do so without sounding like a bitter, scorned old hag.
She did not accomplish that goal with these statements.
