DES MOINES — Hillary Clinton said on Friday in a podcast interview that Senator Bernie Sanders and his supporters did not do enough to unify the Democratic Party after the prolonged 2016 primary, calling the behavior of his supporters “distressing” and saying it affected the general election.
“All the way up until the end, a lot of people highly identified with his campaign were urging people to vote third party, urging people not to vote,” Mrs. Clinton said in an interview with Emily Tisch Sussman for her podcast “Your Primary Playlist.” “It had an impact.”
Mrs. Clinton also drew a sharp distinction between her efforts in 2008 to bring the party together after her bruising primary battle with Barack Obama and the efforts by Mr. Sanders in 2016: “Night and day,” she said.

Truly, HRC will be remembered as the most bitter candidate in American history.
And blaming this citizen and voter for her failures is proof that she has lost all perspective.
Just one more reason this voter will never support Vichy Dems.

Hillary chose to rig the Dem primary so she has no room to talk. Perhaps she’s forgotten that.
She would do well to fade away and enjoy her ill gotten gains less she desires people be reminded of it….

Has Bernie sanders said a single negative thing abotu Hilalry clinton since the convention in 2016?
Anything at all? Literally, one thing, no matter how infinitesimal?
No, he hasn’t. He’s gone out of his way to avoid even the chance of doing so.
Has a month gone by in the last four fucking years where Hillary Clinton can claim the same? Where she has not spewed some vitriol at Bernie Sanders? Or her party? or even the people who voted for her but somehow didn’t vote “hard enough”?
Hillary clinton is so toxic that she needs to be listed as a superfund site.

So, Hillary, since Bernie failed to do your bidding in 2016, you can trample sour grapes all over and stir up old divisions for this elect i.p.o on. It’s all about you, Your Majesty.

No single person has made me believe that the Democratic Party has abandoned me more than Hillary Clinton. She pioneered the DLC for cripe sakes.
There is no person on this earth that could unite me with her.
Hillary was the divider and faults Bernie for not uniting that divide. I am so glad she is not President. Primarily because it would empower the Third Way faction of the Democratic Party and I believe that they do the greatest political harm to our nation by not giving the working class a representative political option. Fascism is the result of not offering the working class a viable opposition party. Neo liberalism within the Democratic Party will only strengthen fascists. Nothing can be resolved until the neoliberals are drummed out of the Democratic Party.

Sweet Jesus this entire election cycle is turning into a surreal freak show of corporate Democrat mental illness and shameless corruption. HRC is obviously so obsessed with losing that it has affected her ability to think rationally and maintain herself in a public setting with out blurting out shit so crazy people have to sue her. Joe Biden is obviously in mental decline grabbing and insulting voters. Billionaire sociopath just bought his way into the debates. CNN has outed itself as just as biased and corrupt as Fox News. DNC changes debate rules for rich White man while every effort is made to exclude minority candidates that are non-establishment. If Bernie doesn’t win the Democratic party will implode.

I know a lot of people here don’t want to talk about it (and I get why) but it does need to be considered.
Dementia and senility are problems that stalk us more and more as we all live longer and longer lives. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that any of us can do about it. And there is likewise nothing at all that prevents it from taking hold of literally anyone; not a wino on the street corner… not the wife of an ex-president.
I don’t make snap judgments of people’s mental abilities based on age (I mean, obviously – hell the sharpest person I’ve ever known was a 92 year old woman who hiked, HIKED form Cape Town to Cairo) but… well, when we start seeing neurotic behavior like what we see in Clinton, or Biden, or Trump… it’s worth considering that there might be actual, literal neuroses at play.

Bernie did all he could and then some to help her out -even after she and her minions robbed him of the nomination. And Bernie certainly had nothing to do with her losing to Trump. That she did all on her own. What an ungrateful bitter woman.

Who wouldn’t be surprised if our Miss Havisham here did not have a replica of the Oval Office at home to play in?
Proclaiming a populist policy makes you Bernie Sanders like singing ‘Yesterday’ makes you Paul McCartney.

No question a ton of Bernie supporters opposed her in the general. In fact, JPR exists pretty much solely because of that fact. It would be a bit silly of JPR to deny that JPR exists!
But JPR is a whole lot smaller than the PUMAs. Most JPR types never voted for Democratic Presidential candidates even before 2016 anyway. While tons of formerly reliable Democratic voters left the Democratic Party as PUMAs after 2008 election. Many because of one school of feminism. But most because of a certain school of color. The latter never came back. And the former will always be unreliable.

Is there anyone out there in the “resistance” that has done less since 2016 to oppose Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton? She has spent the whole time blaming others, bashing the left, and grifting for herself. That’s it. Just when I think I can’t have more contempt for this evil wench she amazes me again.

He did 39 rallies for her, which is a hell of a lot more than she did for Obama running against McCain.

Even if Hillary and All Her Bots were sweet as pie – Hillary was nothing to vote for because of her record and her stances on issues.
I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.

Accepting responsibility for their own actions and failures, and not blaming others for them, is a universal characteristic of mature adults.
If you want to unite Democrats, and the left in general, in order to get them to vote for you, the first rule is:
Don’t be a lying, cheating corrupt Third Way New Democrat Moderate Republican Corporatist who uses a vicious mendacious smear campaign to attack good people.
Bernie bro my ass. Someone call her a waaaaaambulance.
“Unfortunately in this time of international crisis, it is clear to me at least, that we have an administration that is largely incompetent, and whose incompetence and recklessness have threatened the lives of many, many people in our country…..the United States government today must make it clear that in the midst of this emergency, everyone in our country, regardless of income or where they live, must be able to get all of the health care they need without cost“.

Dear Madaam SOS, Senator from New York (yeah, right) Scorned FLOTUS, and Scorned First Lady of Georgia,
- If you would be so kind to apologize to these folks for your role in destroying their homeland, I’ve referenced a list of countries below where you can go (on the way to hell)
- By all means, write another book, dedicate it to the entire the world, ending it with an apology to your parents.
- Kindly take the knife out of Bernie Sanders’ back, then bury it and weep where you parents lay to rest. You failed them big time.

I remember her not conceding in 2008, but she went on with a scheme to get super delegates to vote for her. She tried to cheat in Florida and Michigan too! Cheating is a Republican trait too!
