Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is still upset over her 2016 loss to President Donald Trump — and she’s taking her frustration out on Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T.
Unhappy on the Democratic sidelines, Hillary jumped into the middle of the 2020 primary during a recent documentary.
And it’s not conservatives she went after.
It was the Sanders campaign under attack.
In the documentary interview, reported on by Hollywood Reporter, Hillary declared that “nobody” liked Sanders and no one in Washington, D.C. was willing to work with him.
An excerpt from her new four-part Hulu series, called “Hillary,” the former Secretary of State didn’t pull her political punches:
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. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.
In the high stakes world of D.C. politics, such a harsh attack on a former political ally — in the middle of the presidential primary — is about as serious an insult that exists.
But she wasn’t finished.
Hillary bashed the culture around the Sanders campaign and attacked his supporters, which she said are all sexist.
“I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him,” she said. “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.”
Critics say Hillary’s unprovoked attack and criticism of Sanders are coming from a place of jealousy.
Or, perhaps Hillary — like most other elite Democrats — sees Sanders as a far-left liberal threat to establishment politicians and “the swamp”?
Sanders has been trying to upset the Democrats’ system for years — and recent reports surfaced that establishment insiders are worried that he may actually pull off the nomination.
Real Clear Politics’ most recent average polling supports the idea that moderate Democrats have reason to be worried: Sanders is the top formidable opponent of Biden.
For Hillary and her political allies, that’s unacceptable.
