Sanders viewed th clip along with the audience
Attendees booed twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at a Bernie Sanders town hall event after a clip from the Hulu documentary series showed her saying, “Bernie just drove me crazy.”
The crowds at the event loudly booed Clinton for making disparaging remarks about the senator.
“Bernie just drove me crazy,” Clinton said in the clip.
“He was in Congress for years. Years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him; nobody wants to work with him,” she added.
“He got nothing done,” Clinton stated.
“He was a career politician. He did not work until he was like 41, and then he got elected to something. It was all just baloney, and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
Sanders viewed the clip along with the audience as he appeared mildly amused and dismissive of the comments.
“Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016, we’re in 2020 now,” Sanders said.
“What I would say—on a good day, my wife likes me. But also, if you look at some of the polling they do for United States senators… in most cases, I turn out to be the most popular United States senator in the whole country.
“One or two people must like me.”
Many Sanders supporters reacted with outrage to Clinton’s remarks months before the documentary aired.
Clinton has since defended her comments as her “authentic opinion” that “were like 15 seconds in a documentary.”

But Clinton’s comments are not necessarily factually accurate.
The socialist candidate did hold a series before he was 41, and he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1981 at the age of 39.
But how much Sanders achieved during his time as a national politician is still a matter of debate.
Clinton said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February that Sanders was betraying the “trust” of Americans by making campaign promises that he would not be able to fulfill.
“You’ve got to be responsible for what you say and what you say you’re going to do. We need to rebuild trust in our fellow Americans, and in our institutions,” Clinton said.
“And if you promise the moon and you can’t deliver the moon, then that is going to be one more indicator of how we just can’t trust each other.”
