Vetting Bernie’s Lies – ‘Sanders’s incorrect claim that Clinton called him ‘not qualified’ for the presidency’
Lie or not – Bernie wants an apology from Hillary for his lying about what she never said.
“She [Hillary Clinton] has been saying lately that she thinks that I am, quote unquote, not qualified to be president.”
— Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), at a rally at Temple University, Philadelphia, on Wednesday
‘Many readers have asked about these remarks by Bernie Sanders, which led him to list the ways that he thought the former secretary of state was “not qualified” to become president’.
‘Did Clinton really say Sanders was unqualified’?
‘Sanders is putting words in Clinton’s mouth’.
‘She never said “quote unquote” that he was not qualified to be president’.
‘In fact, she diplomatically went out of her way to avoid saying that, without at the same time saying he was qualified’.
‘The Washington Post article appropriately noted she raised questions about his qualifications, but certainly never said or suggested she said Sanders was unqualified’.
