Bernie Sanders was on CNN with Jake Tapper when he threw his supporters under the bus and then dragged them through a mud puddle. Bernie Sanders told Tapper that Hillary’s remarks bothered him but only the ones pertaining to Hillary calling his policies false promises. He was in full agreement with her on the fact that his supporters are low life basement dwellers. Hillary and Bernie were supposed to campaign together this week , but Hillary cancelled those plans after her remarks were reported.
In the hacked conversation, Clinton also went on to explain why she views herself as being in the middle of two extremes in this election.
‘It is important to recognize what’s going on in this election,’ she said to donors in February.
‘Everybody who’s ever been in an election that I’m aware of is quite bewildered because there is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates.
‘So as a friend of mine said the other day, I am occupying from the center-left to the center-right. And I don’t have much company there.
‘Because it is difficult when you’re running to be president, and you understand how hard the job is — I don’t want to over-promise. I don’t want to tell people things that I know we cannot do.’

Clinton is battling to convert as many young voters as possible, many of whom supported Sanders instead of her.
