Tlaib apologizes for booing Clinton, says 'disappointment' in recent comments about Sanders 'got the best of me'

The feud between Hillary Clinton and the camp behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won't go away.

Clinton on Friday again criticized Sanders and his supporters for fragmenting the Democratic Party in 2016 and playing at least some role in the outcome of the election that year. "All the way up until the end, a lot of people highly identified with his campaign were urging people to vote third party, urging people not to vote," Clinton said in a podcast interview with Emily Tisch Sussman.

That didn't sit well with one of Sanders' key congressional endorsements, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who booed Clinton when asked about her during a campaign event in Iowa ahead of next week's caucuses.



Tlaib issued an apology Saturday morning, saying she allowed her "disappointment" in Clinton's comments to "get the best of me," and made it clear she will do whatever she can to help the eventual Democratic nominee unseat President Trump.

It's not clear if Clinton will accept the apology, but the Sanders campaign already has.
