Fox News anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum aired a clip of Clinton’s Hulu series during Sanders’ town hall on Monday night.
MacCallum asked Sanders, “How you would get things done in Congress when there are a lot of folks who don’t agree with all the ideas that you just mentioned. And here is one of them. This is Hillary Clinton.” She proceeded to show Sanders the clip.
Sanders, smiling, turned to watch Clinton say, “Bernie just drove me crazy. He was in Congress for years. Years.” She continued, “He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him. He got nothing done.”
Clinton did not stop there, she called Sanders “a career politician,” and added, “He did not work until he was like 41 and then he got elected to something. It was all just baloney and I feel so bad that you know, people got sucked into it.”
Watch the exchange below (starting at 14:15):
The clip was immediately followed by boos from the audience.
Following up, MacCallum asked Sanders what his reaction was to which he replied, “Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016. We’re in 2020 now. … One or two people must like me.”
Clinton recently appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” where she was asked if she still believed his campaign was “baloney.” She answered, “That was my authentic opinion then, it’s my authentic opinion now,” as IJR previously reported.
The former first lady continues to stand by her comments, as she told the Hollywood Reporter her view of Sanders has remained the same. She also previously told the Los Angeles Times that she “absolutely” stands by her remarks as IJR previously reported.
