Hulu is set to premiere its four-hour docuseries Hillary at Sundance this coming weekend. In advance of the event, Hillary Clinton has done an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the series. One of the most interesting things to note concerns Clinton’s former Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders. Here’s part of the interview:
In the doc, you’re brutally honest on Sanders: “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.” That assessment still hold?
Yes, it does.
If he gets the nomination, will you endorse and campaign for him?
I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters.
The former Secretary of State also called Sanders out for sexism:
It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women. And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it.
Along those same lines, Clinton was also asked about Elizabeth Warren’s admission that Sanders told her a woman can’t win the presidency. Clinton said “that sentiment is untrue,” calling it “a personal attack on Warren” and “part of a pattern.”
Hillary will be on Hulu starting March 6. Watch a preview above.
