Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in a Fox News Town Hall Monday night responded to attacks by his former 2016 Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, saying he doesn’t “want to relive 2016.”
“Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016. We’re in 2020 now. But what I would say is on a good day, my wife likes me,” Sanders told Fox News moderators Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
In her Hulu 4 part docuseries “Hillary”, Clinton said the Vermont Senator drove her “crazy” and claimed that “nobody likes him” in Congress.
“Bernie just drove me crazy. He was in Congress for years, years! Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, He got nothing done, he was a career politician, he did not work till he was like 41, and then he got elected to something,” Clinton said in the Hulu documentary. “It was all baloney and I feel so bad that you know people got sucked into it.”
The crowd loudly booed after the video clip of Clinton aired.
Sanders dismissed Clinton claim that “nobody likes him” in Congress, stating polls that he is considered the most popular Senator in Capitol Hill.
“If you guys looked at some of the polling that they do for the United States Senators, they do polls on how popular you are, in most cases I turned out to be the most popular United States Senator in the whole country,” Sanders responded.
