Report from CBS News on a new documentary in which former secretary of state Hillary Clinton says that nobody in Congress likes Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Norah O’Donnell: Turning now to the presidential campaign, an extraordinarily personal attack from Hillary Clinton on Bernie Sanders, she’s accusing him of cultivating a sexist culture in his campaign. Ed O’Keefe reports tonight in Iowa.
Ed O’Keefe: Four years after Bernie Sanders nearly derailed her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton is still holding a grudge.
Hillary Clinton: There is a set of expectations out of a first lady . . .
Ed O’Keefe: In a new documentary about her life, Clinton says in Congress, “Nobody likes Sanders.” She dismisses him as a career politician and adds, “It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad people got sucked into it.”
Asked by the Hollywood Reporter if she would support Sanders if he wins the Democratic nomination, Clinton said, “I’m not going there yet.” And, that he has created a “culture” where his staff and his supporters attack his competitors, particularly, the women.
Sanders, back in Washington for the impeachment trial, tried to downplay the criticism.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: On a good day my wife likes me so lets clear the air on that one.
Ed O’Keefe: Asked why he thinks Clinton is talking about him, Sanders said . . .
Sen. Sanders: That is a good question, ask her
Ed O’Keefe: The interview came the morning after Sanders apologized to former vice president Joe Biden for an OpEd written by one of his surrogates that called Biden corrupt.
Sen. Sanders: It’s absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way, and I’m sorry that that OpEd appeared. We don’t need personal attacks, I mean our difficulty is, I appeal to my supporters, please, engage in civil discourse.
Ed O’Keefe: We caught up with Biden at a campaign event this afternoon and I asked him about Sanders’ comments, and he told me, “I accept his apology.” Norah . . .
Norah O’Donnell: Alright, from Des Moines tonight, Ed, thank you
