Bernie Sanders not impressed with former campaign rival Hillary Clinton during Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
There are many things to disagree with Senator Bernie Sanders about, but frustration with Hillary Clinton is not one of them. On Friday night Colbert asked the former presidential-hopeful what he thought about the blame Clinton had tossed his way for “destroying America” in her book, What Happened?
Sanders, as it turns out, had quite a bit to say:
“Actually, the progressive movement today and grassroots activism is stronger than it has been in many, many years. As a result of our campaign, millions of young people began to vote for the first time, became engaged in the political process. We’re seeing young people all over this country, working class people running for office from school board to congress.”
“But I understand. Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country and she lost. She was upset about it and I understand that. But our job now really is not to go backwards, it is to go forwards. It’s to kind of create the nation that we know that we can become. We have enormous problems facing us and I think it’s a little bit silly to keep talking about 2016.”
Even the socialists and Democrats are getting sick of Hillary whining about how it’s everyone else’s fault she lost. Maybe one day they’ll start to remember that long and awkward pause shortly after Trump’s victory when Clinton refused to appear because she was presumably busy having a tantrum.
It’s a long shot, but maybe if Democrats can come to terms with the reality that their candidate was an awful, miserable witch they might start to accept there was no need for Russian hacking in the election. Hillary had a mass of e-mails she didn’t want anyone to find because they were unflattering. Americans found them anyway and it bit her in the ass.
