by Tommy Christopher | 2:49 pm, February 12th, 2016 . The upcoming South Carolina Democratic primary means that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are locked in a battle of Dueling The lie that Hillary Clinton “pushed the Superpredator theory” is not, and Ben Jealous ought to stop saying that.

Bernie Sanders had to know that Stephen Colbert was going to ask him about Hillary Clinton ’s new book. “Let’s not keep arguing about 2016 . Let’s get together and take on Trump’s desire to divide us up.

“I think the response is we have got to think going forward and I would like her to join us in a fight for 15 (dollar minimum wage), in a Medicare-for-all single payer system, in taking on the fossil fuel industry so that we transform our energy system away from fossil fuel and move to energy efficient and sustainable energy,” Sanders said.

“So in other words, we need her help to go forward. Let’s not keep arguing about 2016. Let’s get together and take on Trump’s desire to divide us up. Let’s go forward with a progressive agenda.”

The senator also raved about the progressive movement and grassroots activism that came out of such a divisive election.

“We have got to stand together against Trump’s efforts to divide us up, take on the billionaire class...so we have a government that works for all of us, not just the 1%,” Sanders said.

He didn’t resist one last jab at Clinton, though.

“Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in this country and she still lost,” he said.

Asked to say something nice about Trump, Sanders had more trouble, but came up with one: his vague promise to take on the pharmaceutical industry and the high prices on medication.

The senator ended his segment by hedging on the possibility of another presidential run, instead saying he wants to “focus on the issues that the American people care about.”
