Hillary Clinton says she isn’t sure Bernie Sanders is a Democrat
“There is a persistent, organized effort to misrepresent my record, and I don’t appreciate that,” Clinton told Politico in a podcast interview published Wednesday. “And I feel sorry for a lot of the young people who are fed this list of misrepresentations.”
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Clinton was asked why she hasn’t been able to attract the kind of voters that pack the Vermont senator’s rallies.
“Look, I think it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting,” Clinton said. “I did that a long time ago when I was in my 20s, and I totally get the attraction of this.”
Sanders’ attacks on former President Bill Clinton are also irking the Democratic frontrunner.

“I know that Sen. Sanders spends a lot of time attacking my husband, attacking President Obama,” she told Politico. “I rarely hear him say anything negative about George W. Bush, who I think wrecked our economy.”
What’s more, Clinton says she isn’t sure Sanders is a real Democrat.
“I can’t answer that,” Clinton said. “He’s a relatively new Democrat, and, in fact, I’m not even sure he is one. He’s running as one. So I don’t know quite how to characterize him. I’ll leave that to him.”
