Sanders’ Wife Slams Trump for Calling Clinton ‘Evil’

Bernie Sander’s wife came to the defense of Hillary Clinton after Donald Trump called her “evil.”

“Absolutely not,” Jane Sanders told MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” shaking her head when asked whether she held the same view of Clinton. “We’ve known Bill and Hillary for years. And we’re not friends, but colleagues.

“That has no place in politics today, I don’t think, Bernie doesn’t think,” Sanders continued.

“We think that the most important thing we can do is to lead by example, to treat others as we would have them treat us, and I hope that it is reciprocal,” she added. “We’re not going to play that game.”

The Hill reports:

Bernie Sanders is battling Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders is leading in New Hampshire, which goes to the polls Tuesday, after Clinton edged him by a fraction of a percentage point in last week’s Iowa caucuses.

Trump earlier Tuesday engaged in a word association game on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” where he weighed in on his presidential rivals, saying of Hillary Clinton: “In a certain way, evil. In a certain way, evil.”

The real estate tycoon described Bill Clinton as “intelligent,” and panned his Republican rivals, calling Jeb Bush a “loser,” Marco Rubio “confused” and Ted Cruz “nasty.”
