Bernie Sanders: ‘We All Knew’ What Hillary Clinton Meant By ‘Super-Predators’

“I think we all knew back then what that language meant,” Sanders told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. “That was referring to young blacks. And I don’t think in this country, elected officials or leaders should be using that type of terminology.”

While Hillary Clinton, who is now Sanders’ rival for the Democratic nomination, has already apologized for using the term, Sanders said her husband also owes the country an apology.

Both Sanders and Hillary Clinton, who was then serving as first lady, supported the crime bill at the time. Stephanopoulos, a former official in the Clinton White House, asked Sanders if he had any “second thoughts” about doing so.

“Well, that bill was one of these bills that had good things in it and it had bad things in it,” Sanders replied. “If I had voted against that bill, you would be asking me, ‘Bernie, why did you vote against the ban on assault weapons?’”
