One has to wonder why the MSM has been so diligent in reporting this story about Hillary Clinton accusing Bernie Sanders of being AWOL during the fight for Hillarycare in 1993-94. Have they decided to bend toward Sanders, or do they realize they would vaporize what little credibility they have left by not reporting on this GIGANTIC gaffe. (emphasis in bold is mine)
“I always get a little chuckle when I hear my opponent talking about doing it,” she said at a rally today in St. Louis, Missouri, referring to universal healthcare. “Well, I don’t know where he was when I was trying to healthcare in ’93 and ’94 standing up against the insurance companies, standing up against the drug companies.”
Hillary didn’t know where Bernie Sanders was, but everyone else apparently did…
He was literally standing behind her, but unless she had eyes in the back of her head I’m sure she had absolutely no idea he was standing there…
The remark raised eyebrows after a Sanders staffer immediately tweeted out video from 1993 of the Vermont senator standing directly behind the then-first lady during a press conference about healthcare. In the video, Clinton thanks Sanders for being there. “I’m grateful that congressman Sanders would join us today from Vermont,” she said.
but wait…there’s more.
“To Bernie Sanders with thanks for your commitment to real healthcare access for all Americans and best wishes” – Hillary Rodham Clinton, 1993
Forget email. Sometimes I have to wonder if Hillary Clinton knows what the internet even is when she says such ridiculous things.
