‘Does anybody really believe that?’ Sanders says Democrats have adopted his ideas – not the other way around.
Clinton made the assertion in her upcoming book ‘What Happened’ which comes out tomorrow.
‘No matter how bold and progressive my policy proposals were . . . Bernie would come out with something even bigger loftier and leftier – regardless of whether it was realistic or not’ Clinton wrote.
She also compared him to a crazy character in the film “Something About Mary” who had ludicrous business ideas.
Initially Sanders tried to brush off the former secretary of state’s criticism nicely – saying during a Sept. 6 appearance on CBS’ “Late Show” that he wanted to move on from the past.‘Our job now is really not to go backwards.It is to go forward’ he told host Stephen Colbert.‘It is to create the kind of nation we know we can become.We have enormous problems facing us and I think it’s a little bit silly to keep talking about 2016′.
Appearing the next day on MSNBC’s ‘All In With Chris Hayes’ however – Sanders was more cutting in his rebuttal.
