Bernie Sanders said Wednesday that Hillary Clinton is not "qualified" to be president, a sharp escalation in rhetoric in the Democratic primary.
"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."
Of course the problem with this statement is that Hillary did NOT say that Bernie was unqualified to be President.
What she said was the following:
"I think he hadn't done his homework and he'd been talking for more than a year about doing things that he obviously hadn't really studied or understood, and that does raise a lot of questions," Clinton said. "Really what that goes to is for voters to ask themselves can he deliver what he's talking about."
That was based on the New York Daily News interview that has a lot of people wondering about Sanders' ability to do the things he has promised to do.
However it should be noted that Sanders' said "quote unquote" when describing what Hillary allegedly said, and that it demonstrably false.
This was a yuge mistake for Sanders and it is definitely going to have an impact on, not only his campaign, but his reputation as a politician who does not "go negative."
