Bernie Sanders: 'Silly' That Hillary Keeps Talking About 2016

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Thursday that his former rival Hillary Clinton should look ahead instead of talking about the election she lost.

"Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country and she lost and she was upset about it and I understand that," he said on the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" late Thursday night. "Our job now is really not to go backwards, it is to go forwards. I think it's a little bit silly to be keeping talking about 2016. We've got too many problems."

Clinton has an upcoming book, titled "What Happened," about the 2016 presidential election. In some passages, she claims that Sanders hurt her campaign by "[resorting] to innuendo and impugning my character," writing that "his attacks caused lasting damage," according to CNN.

Sanders responded on Thursday, "actually, the case is the progressive movement today and grassroots activism is stronger than it's been in many, many years."

Clinton also accused Sanders of copying her campaign's policy ideas.

"That's what it was like in policy debates with Bernie. We would promise a bold infrastructure investment plan or an ambitious new apprenticeship program for young people, and then Bernie would announce basically the same thing, but bigger."

"I.e., Bernie Sanders just stole all of Hillary Clinton's ideas. Does anybody really believe that?" the senator asked on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes" Thursday.

"The truth is and really story is that the ideas that we brought forth during that campaign, which was so crazy and so radical, have increasingly become mainstream," he added.
