The Hillary Clinton campaign might want to reel in Bill Clinton for a little while, as he’s starting to do more damage than good.
In an obviously unscripted appearance this week, President Clinton suggested that Bernie Sanders supporters might want to shoot people on Wall Street.
The Hill reports:
Bill Clinton: Sanders fans would ‘shoot every third person on Wall Street’
Former President Bill Clinton on Friday joked that Bernie Sanders’s supporters would open fire on Wall Street.
“One of the few things I really haven’t enjoyed about this primary: I think it’s fine that all these young students have been so enthusiastic about [Hillary Clinton’s] opponent and [Sanders] sounds so good: ‘Just shoot every third person on Wall Street and everything will be fine,’” Clinton said in Fort Washington, N.Y., according to CNN.
“The inequality problem is rooted in the shareholder-first mentality and the absence of training for the jobs of tomorrow,” Clinton added.
Clinton said after the event on Friday said that the quip illustrates Sanders’s focus on blaming the financial industry for America’s woes.
“It’s a joke,” he told MSNCB. “It’s a total joke. It’s meant to point out that’s the unilateral explanation for everything that’s wrong with America. You know, we all need to lighten up here, have a little sense of humor.”
Here’s the CNN video:

It’ll be fun to watch Hillary try to spin this.
