A hacked email reveals an audio recording that highlights the real Hillary Clinton. The recording is of a conversation between Hillary Clinton and donors during a February fundraising event.
Aside from a coughing attack that takes place at the very start of the recording, the recording reveals Hillary describing Bernie Sanders supporters as “children of the Great Recession” who are “living in their parents’ basement.”
The audio is released by the Washington Free Beacon.
In the clip Hillary says that many of her former primary opponent’s supporters sought things like “free college, free health care,” saying that she preferred to occupy the space “from the center-left to the center-right” on the political spectrum.
In the roughly 49-minute tape, Clinton suggests the 2016 presidential race has been divided into two camps: the far-right “populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach” espoused by many Republican candidates and Sanders’ democratic-socialist vision that includes “free college, free healthcare” and “go as far as Scandinavia, whatever that is.”
Hillary Clinton also told supporters she would likely scrap a major upgrade to the United States’ nuclear weapons program. LISTEN:
