It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton doesn’t care for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. She trashed him in her 2017 book, “What Happened” and continues to trash him in recent interviews.
As Clinton prepares for a new four part HULU series that’s set to premier at the Sundance Film Festival this week, she told The Hollywood Reporter that “nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done.”
“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it,” she continued.
When asked if she’d endorse him for President if he got the nomination, Clinton wouldn’t say, instead focusing on more negative aspects of the Sanders’ campaign.
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. 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. And I don’t think we want to go down that road again where you campaign by insult and attack and maybe you try to get some distance from it, but you either don’t know what your campaign and supporters are doing or you’re just giving them a wink and you want them to go after Kamala [Harris] or after Elizabeth [Warren]. I think that that’s a pattern that people should take into account when they make their decisions.
