Bill Clinton Says Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Like The Left-Wing Tea Party, Warns Not To "Reward" Them

|

During a President's Day campaign visit to South Florida on Monday, Bill Clinton warns the Democratic Party against following in the footsteps of the GOP, by telling people "what they want to hear" and adding to political polarization. "Then that's going on now in our own party," he says, obliquely referencing his wife's only remaining primary opponent.

"If you don't deal with the fact that we are too politically polarized and we keep rewarding people who tell us things we know they can't do because it pushes our hot button, we can't go forward together."

BILL CLINTON: It's not altogether mysterious that there are a lot of people that say, well, the Republican party rewarded the Tea Party. Just tell people what they want to hear, move them to the right, and we'll be rewarded, except they didn't get anything done.

Then that's going on now in our party. If you don't deal with the fact that we are too politically polarized and we keep rewarding people who tell us things we know they can't do because it pushes our hot button, we can't go forward together.
