Clinton on Sanders: 'Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him'


A recent documentary with Hillary Clinton reveals some of her thoughts on presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and we can't stop laughing. Clinton went hard on him and the documentary reveals a hilarious quote she said about him: "nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician."

This is something a lot of us already thought, or knew, but it's great to see someone like Hillary Clinton call it out too. This might be the only thing you have in common with Hillary Clinton, unless you wear pant suits.

When it comes to what exactly was said, then let's take a look at the article done by Lacey Rose on Hollywood Reporter. She quotes bits and pieces of the documentary and it helps provide more of the context on which Hillary made these statements.

Once you agreed to open yourself up for this docuseries, what was your biggest concern?

I don't know that I really understood what I was getting into. We ended up doing 35 hours of interviews, and it was both exhilarating and obviously painful at some points. It was probably made easier because of the rapport with [Burstein], and it gave me a chance to try to explain things and maybe to vent a bit.

In the doc, you're brutally honest on Sanders: "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." That assessment still hold?

Yes, it does.

If he gets the nomination, will you endorse and campaign for him?

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.

And there you have it, the true feelings about Bernie Sanders coming straight from Hillary Clinton herself.
