Rightwing Rag Gonna Make Some Sh*t Up At You About How Hillary And Bernie Are Beefing
'OK, Bern, but I wish you wouldn't call me that'
In a campaign where there's already enough real news to go around, we have to say we're impressed by the ability of some media outlets to find controversy where there isn't any. Last week, the Washington Free Beacon leaked terrible horrible scandalous audio of Hilary Clinton saying back in February that a lot of millennials were supporting Bernie Sanders because the economy was tough for them. This was supposedly scandalous because she said some were living in their parents' basements and unable to find good jobs after graduating during the post-2008 recession. Sunday, Bernie Sanders went on CNN and ABC and said her comments were spot on. On ABC's This Week:
“During the campaign we had our differences, but what she was saying there was absolutely correct,” Sanders said during an interview Sunday morning in response to the newly leaked audio of Clinton talking about his supporters during a private fundraiser in February.
“You have millions of young people, many of whom took out loans in order to go to college, hoping to go out and get decent-paying jobs, and they are unable to do that,” said Sanders, who endorsed Clinton two months ago. “And yes, they do want a political revolution. They want to transform this society.”
On CNN's State of the Union:
"If you listen to the whole discussion that she had, a very important point that she made is that a lot of young people who went into debt, worked very hard to get a good education, can't find a job commensurate to the education that they received," Sanders told CNN's Jake Tapper[.]
Ah, but Tapper also asked Sanders if Clinton's February remarks about his plan for free college being unrealistic had bothered him, and he replied,
Of course it does, but we are in the middle of a campaign ... If you go to some of the statements I made about Hillary Clinton, we have real differences.
