While campaigning for his wife, former President Bill Clinton took a moment to hit at supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.,Vt.) over the weekend for what he deemed sexist attacks against his wife Hillary Clinton.
“People who have gone online to defend Hillary Clinton and explain, just explain why they support her have been subject to attacks that are literally often too profane, not to mention sexist to repeat,” Clinton said.
Clinton was referring to a mob of online Sanders supporters who refer to themselves as “Bernie Bros.” Sanders disavowed the tactics from his supporters in an interview and said that it was not what his campaign was about.
Clinton also released a string of blistering attacks against the senator from the neighboring state and said that Sanders health care plan was bad for New Hampshire as well as the rest of America.
During his presidency, Clinton was impeached for lying under oath about his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who Clinton once derided as a “narcissistic loony toon.”
Jonathan Allen of Reuters reports that former White Hosue volunteer Kathleen Willey is set to campaign against Clinton. Willey said that in 1993 Clinton groped her in an Oval Office hallway when she came to him asking for a paid job.
Willey agreed to become a paid spokeswoman for a group backed by Roger Stone. Stone plans on attacking the Clintons through radio, television and billboards.
“This gives me more of an opportunity to get this message out to young voters who weren’t even born or don’t even remember what happened and to the women who have suffered,” Willey said.
