At a Fox News town hall, moderators Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum played a clip for Sanders from a new documentary about Clinton.

"Bernie just drove me crazy," Clinton said in the clip. "He was in Congress for years. Years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him. He got nothing done."

She added: "He was a career politician. He had — he did not work until he was like 41 and then he got elected to something. It was all just baloney and I feel so bad that, you know, people got sucked into it."

To her criticism, Sanders responded: "Unlike Secretary Clinton, I don’t want to relive 2016. We’re in 2020 now."

"But also, if you guys looked at some of the polling that they do for United States senators, you know they do polls that — how popular you are. In most cases I turn out to be the most popular United States senator in the whole country," he continued.
