Hillary: Sanders Giving Poor & Middle Class "Too Much Attention"

WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - Today, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized rival Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont for giving poor and middle class Americans "too much attention." Clinton argued Sanders was risking not only her ascension to the presidency, but the livelihoods of her friends on Wall Street by letting the poor and what's left of the middle class foolishly think they had "a chance in hell" of reversing growing income inequality.


"Bernie Sanders' support for unions and everyone who is not a large donor to my campaign just doesn't make sense. Not only is he encouraging the poor and middle class to fight for economic fairness and justice, but he has plans to go after my huge donors on Wall Street by breaking up the largest banks and increasing financial regulations," explained Clinton, who assured the press that would never happen when she became president.

Clinton added, "I don't understand why Sanders wants to cut into the profit margins of my friends. He has launched a campaign of class warfare that only serves to divide Americans. The most wealthy people in America earned their fortunes through superior lobbying and rigging the system. It's time for the poor and middle class to accept defeat."

Secretary Clinton accused an unidentified member of the press of being "a Sanders plant" after being asked if she saw the contest between Sanders and herself as "one that pits a proud progressive and liberal populist against a corporate-sponsored Democrat who would have been called a moderate Republican thirty years ago."


Hillary Clinton ended the press conference by asserting she knew nothing about the first negative attack ad on Bernie Sanders, which was launched by her super PAC named "Hillary 2016, Or Else."

"Just let Clinton keep talking so she can show everyone our competing visions for America. People are angry about stagnate wages and wealth being stuck at the top, and Hillary has no plan to change any of it," replied Sanders to TNA's request for comment.
