BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – According to a scoop from NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Ali Vitali’s new book, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused her once-Democratic Party rival Bernie Sanders of being a sexist, who has routinely made demeaning comments about women, including those he has campaigned against.

Politico published an excerpt of the book on its website, which focused on the Democratic primary for the 2020 election, particularly Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s, D-Mass., campaign, and the debate night row she had with rival progressive candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., over comments he allegedly made in 2018 that “a woman couldn’t win” the election.

Sanders commented on the allegation. “I was misquoted regarding 2018,” he began. “I said in 2018 that a rickety old woman could not win the election, as a way to tell Elizabeth Warren to get out of the race. I am not sexist, but I think it was chivalrous and respectful back then, for me to warn candidates that they don’t have any chance of winning, especially the old bags.”
