Bernie: How Could Hillary Lose to a ‘Sexist, a Racist … a Homophobe, & a Religious Bigot?’

"I think all over the country people were scratching their heads and saying 'how did that happen?'" he said.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took a shot at his 2016 presidential primary opponent Hillary Clinton, asking how it was possible that she could lose to “a man who was a pathological liar, who was a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, a homophobe and a religious bigot,” on Tuesday.

“By the Election Day, I ended up, over a three-month period, traveling to 13 states, the battleground states and holding 39 rallies and events for Secretary Clinton and for Democratic candidates,” Sanders said while speaking at George Washington University about his new book, “Where We Go from Here: Two Years in the Resistance.”

Sanders then told a story about how on a plane ride home from an event in Nevada the day before Election Day, his “gut” feeling was that Clinton had a “3 to 1” chance to win the election.

“On election night, as I often do, we bring family and friends over to the house to watch election returns. And then what we almost always do is after the returns come in, I go downtown where Democrats are holding there gathering and say few words,” Sanders said. “But, on that night, I didn’t leave the house because, in fact, I was very, very depressed.”

“I was asking, I think, the question that millions of Americans were asking and that is, ‘How could Secretary Clinton have lost to a man who was a pathological liar, who was a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, a homophobe, and a religious bigot?’” Sanders said. “I think all over the country people were scratching their heads and saying, ‘How did that happen?'”
