By no means am I a Bernie Sanders supporter. In fact, I think most things that comes out of his mouth is idiotic. However, if there's one person I like even less than all the other Democrats, it's Hillary Clinton. So when Sanders fired back at Clinton for her hateful remarks towards him, I lost it.
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton threw shade at Senator Bernie Sanders, stating that "no one likes" the presidential candidate. However, on Tuesday, he fired back and told ABC News, "On a good day, my wife likes me."
“On a good day, my wife likes me, so let’s clear the air on that one,” Sanders said, “Secretary Clinton is entitled to her point of view,” he added. “My job today is to focus on the impeachment trial, my job today is to put together a team that can defeat the most dangerous president in the history of the United States of America.”
I found that actually quite hilarious. Like I said, I generally don't like anything that comes out of Sanders' mouth, but even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then, eh?
When ABC asked Bernie why Hillary is “still talking about 2016,” he replied, “That is a good question, ask her.”
The Hill report:
A statement from the Sanders campaign issued earlier Tuesday did not directly address Clinton’s comment in an upcoming documentary that “nobody likes him” or “wants to work with him” in the Senate.
“My focus today is on a monumental moment in American history: the impeachment trial of Donald trump,” Sanders continued, “Together, we are going to go forward and defeat the most dangerous president in American history.”

The comments were first reported by The Hollywood Reporter in an interview the site had with the former Democratic presidential nominee. In the interview, Clinton also criticized the "culture" that surrounds the Vermont senator, pointing to his leadership team and the online "Bernie Bros."
"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."
The hashtag #ILikeBernie trended on Twitter in the wake of the recent report.
Clinton is not making any new friends.
