Bill Clinton Unleashes Stinging Attack on Bernie Sanders

Bull Clinton addressing a few hundred supporters at a junior high school in Milford, NH , portrayed Bernie Sanders as hypocritical, “hermetically sealed” and dishonest, reports NYT.

NYT goes on:
He even likened an incident last year, in which Sanders staffers obtained access to Clinton campaign voter data, to stealing a car with the keys in the ignition.

Mr. Clinton discussed the race for nearly 50 minutes, and his comments took on a harder edge the longer he spoke. What began as a testimonial to Mrs. Clinton’s leadership and a statesmanlike lecture on her approach to issues evolved into an angrier recitation of grievances against Mr. Sanders and his fervent supporters...

Criticizing Mr. Sanders’s hastily presented health-care plan, which Mr. Clinton claimed the Vermont senator had already disavowed, the former president asked: “Is it good for America? I don’t think so. Is it good for New Hampshire? I don’t think so.”

He continued: “The New Hampshire I knew would not have voted for me if I had done that.”

But Mr. Clinton’s most pointed remarks may have been when he took aim at Sanders supporters who, he said, use misogynistic language in attacking Mrs. Clinton. He told the story of a female “progressive” blogger who defended Mrs. Clinton online through a pseudonym because, he said, the vitriol from Mr. Sanders’s backers was so unrelenting...

“She and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary, to explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat.” Mr. Clinton, growing more demonstrative, added that the liberal journalist Joan Walsh had faced what he called “unbelievable personal attacks” for writing positively about Mrs. Clinton.

In a demonstration of how engrossed he is in this campaign, Mr. Clinton recited the names of the regional newspapers that are backing his wife’s campaign and, in a rarity, mentioned Mr. Sanders by name.


  1. Bernie should accuse them of anti-Semitism.

  2. What struck me about the Clinton diatribe is how poorly he has aged. He really has the old-man vibe going, and he's only 69. Ron Paul, at 80 gives a way younger vibe than Bill Clinton.
