Larry Sanders, Bernie’s older brother, didn’t pull any punches in a recent interview, blasting former President Bill Clinton.
According to The Hill:
“Bernie Sanders’s elder brother rips Bill Clinton in a new interview, suggesting the media is too focused debating whether the former president is a “terrible rapist” or “nice rapist.”
“Bill Clinton has leapt in to try and make it personal with Bernard,” Larry Sanders, 80, who lives in England, told The Daily Beast for an interview published Friday. He described Clinton as a “dreadful” president for poor people.
Sanders went on to argue that “a lot of bad key policies didn’t come in under the Bushes” but stemmed from the Clinton administration, mentioning changes in the welfare system and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
“The media have a lot to answer for, I think, you don’t get that detailed discussion. You get: ‘Is Hillary a nice person? Is Bill really such a terrible rapist or is he a nice rapist?'” he said.”
