In Hillary’s new book, she reveals that she felt Bernie Sanders and his supporters were partly to blame for her loss. Bernie didn’t like hearing that, naturally. Now he’s hitting back at her.

Sanders brushes off Clinton criticism: ‘Look forward and not backward’
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday brushed off Hillary Clinton’s criticism of him in her new book about the 2016 presidential election, saying he’s not interested in playing the blame game.
“My response is that right now it’s appropriate to look forward and not backward,” Sanders told The Hill.
“I’m working overtime now to see we overturn Trump’s decision on DACA, pass a $15-an-hour minimum wage, and next week I’ll be offering a Medicare-for-all single-payer system,” he said.
Sanders said he wants to focus on the legislative challenges at hand and not debate who is to blame for President Trump’s stunning electoral upset of Clinton, the Democratic nominee, in November.
“Our job is to go forward,” he said.
Here’s the problem Democrats face. This spat between Hillary and Bernie is not about the two of them. It represents a very real rift in the Democratic Party. The establishment is fighting the far left for power.
That fight is going to carry on all the way to 2020.
