Hillary Clinton slammed Bernie Sanders in her new book, What Happened, calling the Senator from Vermont an ‘over-promiser’ whose attacks on her during the primary caused ‘lasting damage’ which paved the way for Donald Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign – while President Obama counseled her to ‘grit my teeth and lay off Bernie.’
In the book – slated for release on September 12th (1 year and 1 day after she was chucked into a van like a side of beef), Clinton says Sanders “had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character” because the two Democrats “agreed on so much,” according to CNN.

Clinton went on to blame some of Bernie’s supporters, “the so-called ‘Bernie Bros,’ took to harassing my supporters online. It got ugly and more than a little sexist.”
“When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution, he couldn’t come up with anything,” Clinton wrote. “Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign.”
Cheating? What cheating?
Since the 500 page What Happened isn’t available for our reading pleasure, I’m going to make a long-shot prediction that there’s no mention of Hillary colluding with Donna Brazile to cheat against Bernie in the primaries… Because I’m sure the optics on that weren’t as bad as Bernie doing what every political candidate has done since the beginning of time and talking shit about their opponent.
Meanwhile, What Happened can be summed up in one meme:
