Hillary Clinton is gearing up for her new documentary, which is scheduled to release on Hulu in March. Recently she sat down to talk to The Hollywood Reporter about the 4-hour docuseries, and she definitely wasn’t holding back. The project will feature 35 hours of her time, as she recounts her husband’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, to election night 2016, and more.
During the interview, she was asked about comments she had made concerning Bernie Sanders. Hillary was asked about her comment, where she said, “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, 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.”
When asked if the assessment still holds today, Hillary said, “Yes, it does.”
However, that was not all. When asked if she would endorse Bernie if he gets the nomination, Hillary responded, “I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s 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.”
She continued, “And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it. And I don’t think we want to go down that road again where you campaign by insult and attack and maybe you try to get some distance from it, but you either don’t know what your campaign and supporters are doing or you’re just giving them a wink and you want them to go after Kamala [Harris] or after Elizabeth [Warren]. I think that that’s a pattern that people should take into account when they make their decisions.”
As we previously reported, Bernie denied the allegations that he told Elizabeth Warren that a woman could not win the White House. Hillary was also asked about the alleged comment, where she said, “I think that both the press and the public have to really hold everybody running accountable for what they say and what their campaign says and does. That’s particularly true with what’s going on right now with the Bernie campaign having gone after Elizabeth with a very personal attack on her. Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern. If it were a one-off, you might say, “OK, fine.” But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me.”
As you all can see, Hillary didn’t hold back in this interview. To read the full interview, click here.
