On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton made more surprising comments about Senator Bernie Sanders during an interview with NPR.
Clinton was asked about criticism from supporters of Bernie Sanders and if she ran for president like she “believed it was her turn to be president.”
She responded, “Well I just totally reject that. As you probably would have expected me to say. I find this criticism from Sanders supporters to be so off base. He’s not even a Democrat. “
Clinton then claimed her comments weren’t meant to be a “slam” on Sanders.
However, she continued, stating, “He didn’t support Democrats. He’s not supporting Democrats now….I won by four million votes. That’s a landslide. I won, really, by March and April. But he just kept going, and he and his followers’ attacks on me kept getting more and more personal, despite him asking me not to attack him personally.”
Hillary also said, “Now [Sanders] gets a chance to prove that he’s something other than a spoiler. And that is to help other Democrats. And I don’t know if he will or not, but I’m hoping he will.”
Hillary Clinton’s new book “What Happened” was released on Tuesday. Her book discusses the election and how she’s carried on since.
