Bill Clinton calls Sanders attacks vs. Hillary “sexist”

A spokesman for Sanders did fire back, calling the former president's attacks "disappointing"

(CNN) – “When you’re making a revolution you can’t be too careful about the facts. You’re just for me or against me.” Former president Bill Clinton unleashed a blistering no holds barred attack on his wife’s rival, Bernie Sanders.

Going after Sanders’ health care plan, Bill said, “Is it good for America? I don’t think so. Is it good for New Hampshire? I don’t think so.”

Labeling Sanders as dishonest and hypocritical in his criticism of the financial sector he so often rails against, Bill said, “Anybody who takes money from Goldman Sachs couldn’t possibly be president…He may have to tweak that answer a little bit…either that or we’re going to have to get us a write-in candidate.”

The former president’s words were stinging, blasting the Vermont senator and his supporters for what he called inaccurate and sexist attacks. Including “Bernie Bros,” the mobs of Sanders supporters who use crude language to attack Hillary Clinton backers online.

“People who have gone online to defend Hillary and explain, just explain why they supported her, have been subject to attacks that are literally too profane often; not to mention sexist to repeat,” said Bill.

Sanders disavowing such tactics; “Anybody who is supporting me, that is doing sexist things is, we don’t want them. I don’t want them. That is not what this campaign is about.”

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Sanders did fire back Sunday, calling the former president’s attacks “disappointing.”
