(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) Democrats are upset with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for deepening the divide in an already tense primary race, according to The Hill.

“You feel like looking Hillary square in the eye and asking, ‘What the hell are you doing?’” the official said. “Donald Trump is president. Bernie on a bad day would be better than Trump on his best day. We need to win.”

Sanders declined to engage with Clinton, but he has ramped up attacks on Joe Biden, who is seen as the establishment moderate in the field.

Sanders has criticized Biden for voting to enter the Iraq War and voting to cut Social Security, framing Biden as an out-of-touch candidate who doesn’t believe progress is realistic.

But Clinton argued that Sanders is the one who is out-of-touch — with the Democratic Party.

“Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton said. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

After facing backlash from her Democratic colleagues, Clinton walked back her statement and said she would do “whatever I can to support our nominee.”
