Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders blew off being “slapped” with the label of socialist and said Hillary Clinton is being “slapped” in the press over her “emails.”
“That’s the other key question. Can you win the general election?” asked ABC This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos Stephanopoulos. “You heard what Secretary Clinton had to say about the other Democrats who are concerned, that you, a democratic socialist, will get slapped with that label, not going to be able to win in a general election.”
Sanders, who has been reluctant to attack Clinton regarding the ongoing controversy and investigation over her private email practices, is now slightly trailing in Iowa a day ahead of the caucus. Now, the same man who once said during the first Democratic debate that no one wants to hear about her “damn emails” anymore, has changed his tune.
“Well, look, in terms of what people are beginning to get slapped with, look at the front pages today in terms of what Secretary Clinton is getting slapped with,” Sanders responded.
“What is it?” Stephanopoulos, a known Clinton operative-turned pretend journalist asked.
“Well, you know as well as I do that it has to do with emails,” Sanders said.
Clinton now leads Sanders on the PPD average of Iowa Democratic Caucus Polls by 3.3%.
