Clinton gives her take on Sanders supporters in leaked fundraising recording - POLITICO

    Hillary Clinton dismissed Bernie Sanders supporters last winter as "children of the Great Recession" living in their parents basement with careers as baristas.
     That and more comments in a Romney style fundraiser tape leaked out this week.
      It won't make much difference as most of the millennial voters will go for Mrs Clinton or won't vote. It's still interesting to see her take on the Sanders movement.

The fact that many of them won't vote and many won't vote for her or Trump, could very well be a big factor that swings the election.

Once you're a party line dumbass, it's difficult to make changes.

bernie sanders, in reaction to this news story:

"I think what she said ― and, by the way, during the campaign, we do have our differences, Secretary Clinton and I do disagree on issues," he said. "But what she was saying there is absolutely correct. And that is, you’ve got millions of young people, many of whom took out loans in order to go to college, hoping to go out and get decent-paying, good jobs."

in jeff's very next blog post, about the big nyt story on trump's tax avoidance, he wrote:

When you read the Times account and if you have some level of business or tax knowledge, you realize what a hit piece this is as it will be reported as fact and then people will be asked to react to it creating a news cycle lasting for days.

his inability to apply the same level of scrutiny to the story about clinton's is kind of breathtaking. because make no mistake, as bernie himself points out, it's a hit piece. it twists her very sympathetic words towards bernie's supporters into something divorced from what she meant. the fact that jeff laps up a story like this tells us much more about him than about clinton or sanders.
