Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who conspicuously refused to call rival Bernie Sanders “unqualified” in a Wednesday interview, has directly responded directly to Sanders’ attack that she is “not qualified” to be president, and his accusation that she had done the same to him. During a press availability Thursday morning in front of “Yankee Stadium,” Clinton swung back hard at Sanders by expressing her support for him if he were to be the general election candidate:
Look, I didn’t — I don’t know why he’s saying that. But I will take Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump or Ted Cruz any time. So let’s keep our eye on what’s really at stake in this election. We have Republicans whose values are so antithetical to what’s right for New York, or what’s right for America. And I’m just going to keep doing what I’ve been doing, with my friends like [Bronx borough president] Ruben [Diaz Jr.] for all these years to try to really make a difference in peoples lives.
It’s anyone’s guess what the Bernie Sanders campaign’s next move will be in this pitched war of words, but if history is any indication, it won’t be an Edible Arrangement.
