Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign spokesman unloaded on Hillary Clinton and her team on Monday, calling them the “biggest a**holes in American politics.”
The scathing comments are in response to several former Clinton campaign staffers leaking details this week about Sanders using private jets during the 2016 election when the Vermont senator was traveling to attend rallies for Clinton.
While speaking with Politico, Michael Briggs, the spokesperson, called Clinton’s staff “total ingrates.”
“You can see why she’s one of the most disliked politicians in America,” Briggs said, referring to Clinton.
“She’s not nice. Her people are not nice. [Sanders] busted his tail to fly all over the country to talk about why it made sense to elect Hillary Clinton and the thanks that [we] get is this kind of petty stupid sniping a couple of years after the fact,” he added.
Briggs continued, “It doesn’t make me feel good to feel this way but they’re some of the biggest a**holes in American politics.”
Earlier this week, several former Clinton staffers told Politico that Sanders’ requests for private planes from the campaign became “a running joke in the office.”
The Clinton staffers argued that it was hilarious to see a self-described socialist, who has pushed for the elimination of carbon-generating heavy aircraft in favor of high-speed rail networks, using private jets to travel around the country.
In total, Sanders billed Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine, her running mate, approximately $100,000 for air travel in 2016.
The scathing report comes about a week after Sanders announced that she’s running for president in 2020 and seeking the Democratic nomination.
But Sanders’ constant use of private jets could be a major issue this time around.
As detailed by I Love My Freedom, the Vermont socialist is a total hypocrite on the issue of climate change and planes:
A public report from the Federal Election Commission shows that Commie Bernie spent upwards of $300,000 on just private air travel in just OCTOBER alone!
“Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2018 re-election campaign spent nearly $300,000 on private jet services in October, a report from the Federal Election Commission shows.
Sanders, a climate change hawk, went on a campaign blitz involving nine states to stump for Democratic candidates ahead of the November midterm elections, according to VTDigger. His aggressive campaigning likely served as a preamble for the independent senator’s potential bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.
Sanders, who flew on private Apollo jets, has already positioned himself highlighting climate change as a major economic, infrastructure, and national security challenge in 2020. His busy travel schedule came the same month he issued a stark warning ahead of the November elections on the planet’s impending doom if humanity remains largely asleep at the wheel combating environmental threats.”
Bernie’s problems only seem to be getting worse, but many will agree with what his team said about Clinton.
