Sanders Responds to Bill Clinton Suggesting His Attack on Hillary Was Sexist

Yesterday, when asked if Hillary Clinton would be called “unqualified” by Bernie Sanders if she was a man, Bill Clinton said that there is certainly “subconscious” sexism and double standards going on here.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Sanders last night, in the interview set to air on State of the Union tomorrow, to respond. Sanders sarcastically remarked, “I appreciate Bill Clinton being my psychoanalyst, it’s always nice.”

Sanders said that the Clinton campaign has been signaling a pivot to more negative attacks and as long as that happens, “we are gonna fight back.”

Earlier this week, Sanders acknowledged he’s a little “embarrassed” by how personal and nasty the Democratic race is starting to get.
