Former secretary of state and Hillary Clinton supporter Madeleine Albright said Saturday there's a "special place in hell for women who don't help each other," taking a clear shot at the young women who are supporting rival Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).
"There's never been anybody that's better at understanding things and ready to go than Hillary," Albright said in New Hampshire. "Just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other."

Clinton doubled over laughing and applauding at the remarks by Albright, who served in Bill Clinton's White House. MSNBC's Ari Melber quipped, "Don't go to hell, vote for Hillary," after the exchange aired on Saturday.
Sanders hammered Clinton among younger voters when he battled her to a virtual tie in the Iowa caucus, winning by 70 points.
It marked the second straight day that a female supporter of Clinton raised eyebrows by questioning women for their preference of Sanders over Clinton. On Friday, feminist Gloria Steinem told HBO host Bill Maher that younger women are supporting Sanders more in order to get nearer to boys:
"When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys?’" Steinem said. "The boys are with Bernie."
Even the famously politically incorrect Maher took exception to Steinem’s generalization, saying Steinem would have slapped him if he’d made such a remark.
"Oooh," Maher said, as the crowd tittered. "Now if I said that, yeah, they’re for Bernie because that’s where the boys are, you’d swat me, come on."
"No, no," Steinem protested. "I wouldn’t because boys are saying where–I mean, hello? How well do you know me?"
"Not that well," Maher said. "I’d love to know you better."
