Bernie Sanders Pushes Back: ‘I Worked as Hard as I Could’ for Hillary Clinton

During Senator Bernie Sanders‘ interview on Meet the Press this morning, he responded to one of the attacks lobbed against him by Hillary Clinton.

Clinton points fingers at many targets in her new book, including Sanders, and on The View last week, she claimed unlike what she did for Obama in 2008––pushing her supporters hard to vote for him––she didn’t get that same “respect” from Sanders and his supporters.

Sanders told Chuck Todd he rejects the premise:

“I worked as hard as I could after endorsing Hillary Clinton. I went all over this country, and I would remind people––you know, people say, ‘Well, not everybody who voted for Bernie ended up voting for Hillary.’ No kidding. That’s what happens in politics.”
