Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, responded to critical comments made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about his decades-long work in Congress.
During a Fox News town hall on Monday, Sanders was presented with a clip from moderators Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum that included Clintons recorded comments.
“Bernie just drove me crazy,” Clinton said. “He was in Congress for years. Years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him. He got nothing done.”
The former first lady alleged Sanders is a “career politician” and didnt have a job until he was elected into office when he was aged 41.
“It was all just baloney and I feel so bad that, you know, people got sucked into it,” she remarked.
According to Politico, Sanders graduated from the University of Chicago in 1964 and worked as an aide at a hospital, teaching preschoolers for Head Start, the Vermont Department of Taxes as a researcher, and also worked for a nonprofit.
The report noted that Sanders had acknowledged that he bounced around jobs and struggled to pay the bills for much of his 20s and 30s. He was elected as the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1981 and was in office until 1989. However, a widely-circulated resume of the senators work history from the 1980s showed his first job as being the mayor of Burlington.
