Sanders camp confirms it thinks Planned Parenthood is part of the establishment out to beat Bernie

...in an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Wednesday afternoon, Sanders’ top strategist, Tad Devine, confirmed that the campaign does indeed view Planned Parenthood as part of a Democratic establishment that’s actively opposing Sanders:

Todd: Do you believe that Planned Parenthood and Human Rights Campaign—that these are part of the Democratic establishment that's trying to defeat you?

Devine: I do, Chuck. I think the leadership of Washington-based groups—and it's not just those two—are part of a political establishment here in Washington.

Devine’s statement, in response to a direct question from Todd, is unambiguous. To many progressives who have witnessed Planned Parenthood endure the most witheringly malicious and mendacious assault from conservatives for the past several years, it’s distressing to see the Sanders campaign view it as an organization it’s “taking on,” simply because it endorsed Hillary Clinton.

3. Let me make this "distinction clearly": You're in the Hillary Group.

Amazing that Bernie's campaign and some of his supporters are doubling down on Bernie's "taking on the establishment" remark. Shows their true colors when it comes to who we can count on in the war on women.

7. For heaven's sake, they endorsed Hillary, of course they're out to beat Bernie.

What about this is confusing? It's politics. Are we afraid of that?

I say this as a long-time and future PP supporter, and Bernie supporter.

8. Bernie took it back tonight.

He flip-flopped.

otoh - He is still talking about the Human Rights Fund. I must assume he is just not that into us.

btw -- You are in the Hillary Clinton Group.

9. I thought Bernie

was going to run a clean and honest campaign?

Bernie cannot flip-flop, he can only be flip-flopped.

Or something like that.

Would you have a link to that article? There's one or two people I'd like to send it to--with commentary.

11. LOL. Yes, I just saw that on MSNBC. Quite the flip flop.

I guess Bernie knows politics better than Tad Devine.

18. Nope. Key word is their much overused "establishment"... they were trying to smear PP..

"Todd: Do you believe that Planned Parenthood and Human Rights Campaign—that these are part of the Democratic establishment that's trying to defeat you?

Devine: I do, Chuck. I think the leadership of Washington-based groups—and it's not just those two—are part of a political establishment here in Washington."


That is until BS "walked it back" tonight and blamed it all on Hillary.

Took no responsibility.

walk it back -the damage is done.
