In a new documentary about her career, two-time presidential failure Hillary Clinton unloads on Bernie Sanders claiming “nobody likes him” and attacking his supporters as misogynists.
In the series, titled ‘Hillary’ and set to premiere on Hulu in March, Mrs. Clinton unleashes a torrent of what The Hollywood Reporter (THR) describes as “not-so-fuzzy feelings” about the Vermont senator.
“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,” she ranted. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
THR, for their interview with Clinton, asks if all of these descriptions of Sanders still stand.
“Yes, it does,” she replied.

Still clearly upset with Bernie for not withdrawing from the 2016 primary and, in her mind, costing her the general election, Hillary then pivots to claims by Elizabeth Warren’s camp that Sanders insinuated a woman can’t capture the White House.
Sanders allegedly, in a private meeting with Warren, said: “He did not believe a woman could win.”
“I think [that sentiment] is untrue, which we should all say loudly,” Clinton said. “I mean, I did get more votes both in the primary, by about 4 million, and in the general election, by about 3 million.”
To be fair, the 2016 primary was thoroughly rigged in her favor, from superdelegates to reporters giving her debate questions in advance.
“He said I was unqualified,” Hillary continued with her complaint. “I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me.”
She suggested Bernie’s camp has a pattern of going after women noting the “Bernie Bros” online attacks directed at his competitors, “particularly the women.”

The bad blood between Sanders and his followers and Clinton and her minions has been ongoing for years now.
A spokesman for Sanders’ campaign in 2016 last year slammed Clinton’s aides as “total ingrates” and “some of the biggest a**holes in American politics.”

While Bernie was willing to swallow his pride and try to drag Hillary over the finish line against President Trump, the former First Lady indicates she might not be willing to do the same for him.
“I’m not going to go there yet,” she told THR when asked if she would endorse Sanders if he wins the nomination. “We’re still in a very vigorous primary season.”
In her book describing the 2016 campaign, What Happened, Clinton claimed Bernie had no argument against her as President so “he had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character.”
That implies she had any character left to impugn. Continuing to attack the man who she stole the primary from in 2016 seems to suggest she does not.
