The bitter 2016 Democratic presidential primary between Secretary Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders appears to have grown another pair of legs, as Clinton ripped open the past campaign cycles slow-healing wound by taking a huge swipe at Sanders during an interview with The Reporter.
Clinton is still holding on to a grudge and still thinks very low of the self-styled Socialist Democrat.
“Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician,” she said. “It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.” Asked by The Reporter recently if that assessment still held, she replied, “Yes, it does.
Sanders responded to reporters:
“On a good day, my wife likes me, so let’s clear the air on that one,” Sanders said when asked by reporters to respond to the remark.
“Secretary Clinton is entitled to her point of view,” he added. “My job today is to focus on the impeachment trial. My job today is to put together a team that can defeat the most dangerous president in the history of the United States of America.”
Clinton then walked back her slam of Sanders:
“I thought everyone wanted my authentic, unvarnished views! But to be serious, the number one priority for our country and world is retiring Trump, and, as I always have, I will do whatever I can to support our nominee.”
This can’t be good for Democrats as the perception that they are a party divided has now been chiseled in stone.
