No, Bernie Won't Be Asking Hillary for Advice in 2020. He Explained Why on 'The View.'

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may still have a bitter taste in his mouth from the 2016 presidential election. Judging by the unfair debate schedule offered by the Democratic National Committee, the party appeared to favor Hillary Clinton in the race because she had the name recognition. But, Sanders had the support of a huge progressive base that propelled him to the latter stages of the contest.


When Sanders did eventually step aside, he graciously endorsed his former rival until she officially became the Democratic nominee and worked overtime to try and get her elected. We all know that didn't work out.

He's now running again, but he's not itching to get Clinton's support. Here was the awkward moment from "The View" Friday morning.

Meghan McCain noted that a lot of Democratic candidates have been meeting with Clinton as they kickstart their campaigns and wondered if Sanders would do the same.

"I suspect not," he responded. "She has not called me." 

He instead respectfully noted that, "Hillary has played a very important role in modern American politics."

"But you're not interested in any advice from her?" McCain followed up.

"I think not," he again replied, accompanied by chuckles from the audience.

If anything, it seems like she was the one who needed advice, Sanders suggested.


"She didn’t reach out to working class people in the way I think she should’ve," he observed. "There were states where she did not campaign as vigorously as she should've."

Sanders may want to ask for some advice, though, considering he's pushing radical ideas like this.
