Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are best buddies now but just a few months ago they were still embroiled in a bitter struggle for the Democratic nomination. Of course, Bernie never has a chance because the DNC rigged the process in Hillary’s favor.
Now, an audio clip has been leaked in which Hillary refers to Bernie supporters as basement dwellers.
The Washington Examiner reports:
New audio: Clinton refers to Sanders fans as frustrated, basement-dwellers
Hillary Clinton suggested in February that many of the young people who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the Democratic primary were unemployed political neophytes who still lived with their parents, according to new audio released this week.
“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future,” the now-Democratic nominee said at a private fundraiser held in Maclean, Va.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question about why younger voters tend to be so cynical about government.
Listen to the audio:
Rather than reporting on this for what it is, he liberal media has already gone into spin mode to protect Hillary.
Politico has even buckled under criticism and changed their headline on the story to make it less negative:
"The headline and lede of this story have been changed to better reflect Clinton's tone."

It must be nice to be a Democrat.
The media defends you if something looks bad.
