The Washington Examiner reports that Hillary Clinton has canceled joint appearances with her former primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders after Sanders admitted that it bothered him that Hillary seemed to be talking down to his supporters during a closed door fundraising affair in February, when she referred to them as basement dwellers. Sanders made the comment during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday
It was all too much for the thin-skinned Hillary. According to the Examiner, Hillary and Bernie were scheduled to appear together Monday. But now after his comment, Sanders will appear in Iowa and Wisconsin on Monday without Hillary. So much for the Democrats' attempt to win over Millennials with their phony public show of solidarity on the campaign trail.

And why would Sanders continue his support ?
Very strange set of circumstances.

So......the college educated young are the deplorables on her side of the aisle? Ok. Maybe that's harsh. I should have said basement dwellers, I suppose.
It still leaves me with wondering about her base then.han just a one time remark thing, and more of a strategy for the consumption of left leaners.
