Hillary Clinton continues to attack Bernie Sanders while seemingly mocking “authenticity” that is often cited as Sanders’ strength. Clinton called Sanders’ entire campaign as “just baloney” and then derisively added “That was my authentic opinion then; it’s my authentic opinion now.” As discussed in my recent column, Sanders is viewed as authentic in a way that Clinton was not. She clearly takes glee in mocking both Sanders and the demand for authenticity.
Hillary continues to blame Sanders for making her fight for the nomination despite the Democratic National Committee (DMC) effectively rigging the primary for Clinton. In an upcoming four-part docuseries “Hillary” -Clinton slams Sanders and states “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
Sanders is only one of those blamed by Clinton for his defeat — and ever growing list that still notably does not include Clinton herself. After the election, Clinton alternatively blamed sexism, racism, self-hating women, domineering boyfriends, Russian hackers, Bernie Sanders, and of course, James Comey.
