There aren’t many qualities to admire about Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders… For starters he’s a self-declared socialist with communist tendencies.
But when he lost the primary ticket to Hillary Clinton in 2016, he didn’t stop fighting, instead he graciously stood by her side… even though it came to light that Clinton’s pals rigged the primary AGAINST Sanders.
Something we are sure wouldn’t have happened the other way around.
However, as Sanders enters the 2020 arena with Hillary NOWHERE in sight, some Sanders’ staffers revealed the true nightmare it was to work with Clinton.
As first reported by Townhall, one of Sanders’s 2016 presidential spokesman just slammed Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff as the “biggest assholes in American politics”.
This of course, only comes after criticism from those very Clinton staffers.
Michael Briggs, former Sanders spokesperson stated, “You can see why she’s one of the most disliked politicians in America. She’s not nice. Her people are not nice… [Sanders] busted his tail to fly all over the country to talk about why it made sense to elect Hillary Clinton and the thanks that [we] got is this kind of petty stupid sniping a couple years after the fact.”
“It doesn’t make me feel good to feel this way but they’re some of the biggest assholes in American politics,” he added in his interview with Politico.
According to a Politico report from earlier this week, Team Hillary was still complaining about the Vermont Senator’s air travel requests from back in 2016. Sanders jet travel reportedly cost the Clinton campaign over $100,000, with the 77-year old politician making multi-day flights at a time.
Zac Petkanas, Clinton’s rapid response director retaliated by saying, “I’m not shocked that while thousands of volunteers braved the heat and cold to knock on doors until their fingers bled in a desperate effort to stop Donald Trump, his royal Majesty King Bernie Sanders would only deign to leave his plush DC office or his brand new second home on the lake if he was flown around on a cushy private jet like a billionaire master of the universe.”
In response, Sanders’s current spokeswoman Arianna Jones claimed the jet use was in order to get o all over the campaign events for the Clinton campaign, “That’s why chartered flights were used: to make sure Sen. Sanders could get to as many locations as quickly as possible in the effort to help the Democratic ticket defeat Donald Trump.”
Despite Sanders’ general hypocrisy when it comes to spending money and his love for private jets, we’re positive Hillary did a lot more financial damage for her own personal use during her failed 2016 campaign.
