Former President Bill Clinton accused the campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders of making sexist attacks against supporters of his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"When you're making a revolution you can't be too careful with the facts," Clinton said in a speech to supporters Sunday in Milford, New Hampshire, The New York Times reported.

Bill Clinton talked about the race for almost 50 minutes, beginning with kind words for his wife, and steadily grew more and more angry at Sanders and his supporters.

Clinton said Sanders' supporters use misogynistic language to attack his wife and anyone else who supporter her.

One female "progressive" blogger was force to write under a pseudonym because vitriol is so angry, Clinton said.

"She and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary, to explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat," he said.

Further, he said, liberal journalist Joan Walsh has faced "unbelievable personal attacks" for saying positive things about Hillary Clinton.

Sanders senior adviser Tad Devine told the Times it was "disappointing that President Clinton has decided to launch these attacks," adding that Sanders would continue to focus what he called the rigged economy, campaign finance corruption and income inequality.
