Sen. Bernie Sanders fired back at Hillary Clinton on Thursday, after an excerpt from her forthcoming book revealed this week that she blames the Vermont senator with creating “lasting damage” on her campaign.
“Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country,” he told Stephen Colbert. “And she lost, and she was upset about it, and I understand that. But our job is really not to go backward. It is to go forward.”
“I think it’s a little silly to keep talking about 2016. We’ve got too many problems.”
He also asked Colbert if he would share his message with Clinton when she appears on the Late Show to promote her memoir next week.
“Let’s go forward with a progressive agenda. Ask her if she will do that.”
