Bernie Sanders will face a lot of criticisms for saying that Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, is not qualified to be president. But taken in context with his belief that any politician who takes money from special interests cannot truly represent the will of the people over the will of those special interests, I see his point and I totally understand where he is coming from.
“Secretary Clinton appears to be getting a little bit nervous,” he told a crowd in Philadelphia. “And she has been saying lately that she thinks that I am ‘not qualified’ to be president. Well, let me, let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton: I don’t believe that she is qualified, if she is, through her super PAC, taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds. I don’t think that you are qualified if you get $15 million from Wall Street through your super PAC.”
CNN has reached out to the Clinton campaign for comment, and its surrogates responded quickly on Twitter.
“Hillary Clinton did not say Bernie Sanders was ‘not qualified.’ But he has now – absurdly – said it about her. This is a new low,” campaign spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted.0
