Bill Clinton Slams ‘Sexist’ Sanders Supporters
Bill Clinton went on the offensive on Monday, tearing into Bernie Sanders and his “sexist” supporters.
“People who have gone online to defend Hillary and explain — just explain why they supported her — have been subject to attacks that are literally too profane, often — not to mention sexist — to repeat,” he said during an event in Milford, N.H.
“Is it good for America?” he asked of Sanders’s healthcare model. “I don’t think so. Is it good for New Hampshire? I don’t think so.”
“Anybody who takes money from Goldman Sachs can’t possibly be president?” Bill Clinton then asked “He may have to tweak that answer a little bit. Either that, or we’re going to have to get a write-in candidate.”
The Hill reports:
Sanders, meanwhile, rejected any supporter who would engage in misogynistic behavior.
“Anybody who’s supporting me and doing sexist things — we don’t want them,” he told CNN on Sunday. “I don’t want them. That’s not what this campaign’s about.”
Sanders is hanging on to his lead in New Hampshire heading into Tuesday’s early voting contest against Clinton.
He has a nearly 13-point lead on the former secretary of State, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
The Vermont lawmaker is looking to rebound in the Granite State after losing to Clinton by a razor-thin margin in Iowa’s caucuses last week.
