Senator and Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, has responded to Hillary Clinton's claims that he'll never be elected as president because "nobody likes him," by joking "on a good day, my wife likes me."
Clinton criticized Sanders in a documentary which will premiere this month at the Sundance Film Festival this week, saying: "Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician."
"He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him," Clinton said in the four-part documentary, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
Clinton id did not endorse Sanders, instead saying, "I'm not going to go there yet," she said. "We're still in a very vigorous primary season."
Earlier this week when the comments first became public, Sanders waved away Clinton's comments:
"My focus today is on a monumental moment in American history: the impeachment trial of Donald Trump," Sanders said. "Together, we are going to go forward and defeat the most dangerous president in American history."
Clinton is the second female politician to slam Sanders over the past week. During the last Democratic primary debate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused him of lying when he denied that he ever told her in 2018 that a woman could never become president. Their tense showdown was captured by CNN cameras.
