Hillary Clinton, the former US presidential candidate, criticized her former Democratic presidential rival, Bernie Sanders over the controversial remark on women in her documentary film. Clinton, after defeating Sanders in the Democratic Party campaign, fought the 2016 election against the incumbent president, Donald Trump.
Clinton’s Critics Sanders in Her New Documentary
In a new Hulu documentary named, “Hillary,’ Clinton called his former democratic candidate Sanders as the ‘vitriol’ of his supporters and put a harsh statement, “Nobody likes him.” The new documentary which has four-part series is based on the biography of Hillary Clinton and has features commentary from her associates including friends, advisors, and journalists.
The documentary includes various interviews from her family members including husband Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton which were filmed over three meetings since November 2018. The documentary is set to release its premiere show at the Sundance Film festival this week. As per a source, the series will be available for online stream from March 6, 2020— three days after Super Tuesday.
Referring to Elizabeth Warren’s criticism against Sanders, Clinton attacked Sanders saying that he showed a ‘pattern’ in his election campaign targeting women rivals. Clinton told the Hollywood Reporter, “I will say, however, that it’s not only him, but it’s also the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women.”
According to the reporter, Clinton further revealed in the documentary by attacking Sanders, “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, and he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it,” Clinton says in the documentary, according to the reporter. Responding to a question from a media if she still holds the statement, Clinton said, “Yes, it does.”
Politics on Women and Sander’s Key Challenge
The debate on Sander’s controversial remark on women has been a prominent issue of the democratic election campaign since Warren allegedly disclosed that Sanders once said, “a woman could not win the presidency.” Many democrat candidates condemned the remark which Sanders denied such allegation.
Clinton also mentioned that Sanders once called her an “unqualified” candidate during the previous election campaign and attacked his campaign as having “a culture of insult and attack.” Responding to a question of a media about the possibility of a woman winning the presidential election, Clinton pointed out that she got 3 million more votes than Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
Following Hillary’s comments, Sanders responded in a statement, “my focus today is on a monumental moment in American history: the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Together, we are going to go forward and defeat the most dangerous president in American history.”
Clinton, however, also commented, “But to be serious, the number one priority for our country and world is retiring Trump, and, as I always have, I will do whatever I can to support our nominee.” Attacking the Trump administration, she appealed voters “to elect a president who’s going to try to bring us together, and not either turn a blind eye or actually reward the kind of insulting, attacking, demeaning, degrading behavior that we’ve seen from this current administration.”
