Hillary Clinton stands by claim that the Sanders campaign is ‘just baloney’

Poor Bernie Sanders thought he was done hearing from Hillary Clinton after she was rebuked for derogatory comments she made toward him earlier this year, but apparently, he was wrong.

After saying in January that she would support the Democrat nominee even if it’s Sanders, during a Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America, Clinton flipped on the senator from Vermont and stood by her earlier assertion that his campaign is “just baloney,” Breitbart reported.

Hillary strikes again

During the Nevada debate, Bernie Sanders was the only candidate who stated that if a candidate arrives at the Democratic National Convention with a plurality of delegates — but not a majority — that candidate should be awarded the nomination. After losing his overall delegate lead on Super Tuesday, it would be interesting to see if he still feels that way.

When asked what she thought about Sanders’ statement during the Tuesday interview, Clinton sniped, “My reaction is, let’s follow the rules. We’ve got rules. We had rules last time, and we have rules this time. I think it is always a good idea to follow the rules. Everybody knew when they got into it.”

The interviewer then pressed, “In the campaign, in the documentary, you talk about his campaign from 2016 and call it, quote, ‘just baloney and I feel so bad people got sucked into it.’ Do you still feel that way now?”

“Sure, yeah. You know that was my authentic opinion then. It’s my authentic opinion now,” Clinton replied.

She won’t go away

Hillary Clinton cannot keep herself out of this year’s election, and she’s been particularly vocal about her opinions concerning her former opponent. First, she drew significant backlash for trashing Sanders in January. Then, she backtracked on that criticism.

She has returned to the fray once more, again attacking Sanders now that his front runner status appears to be collapsing in the face of Joe Biden’s shocking Super Tuesday comeback. Clinton has also popped up in various Democrat ticket scenarios, first as a possible candidate herself.

After she ran out of time to file for the primaries, those rumors were quickly quashed, then speculation that now-failed candidate Michael Bloomberg was considering adding Clinton to his ticket began to swirl before also quickly being refuted.

With Joe Biden quickly gaining traction, there are new rumors and conspiracy theories being thrown out there, most notably by conservative actor James Woods, who just won’t let the narrative go.
