Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders slammed Hillary Clinton on Thursday for saying “woman” when referring to himself as a man.
The Vermont senator, who has been campaigning for the Democratic nomination, made the remarks during a speech at the American Enterprise Institute’s Institute for Policy Studies conference.
“Hillary Clinton is a woman.
She’s a woman who says ‘man,'” Sanders said, according to a transcript of the event obtained by Newsweek.”
The fact that she says ‘woman,’ is not something that you would want to use in a campaign.
It is a sexist comment.”
Clinton, Sanders, and the Democratic Party have made some changes to their 2016 platform, including an effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
The Republican National Committee has said it plans to launch an online campaign against Sanders in order to pressure him into dropping out of the race.
Clinton has also been accused of gender bias in recent years, including in her 2008 presidential campaign against President Barack Obama.
Sanders has said he has been “a feminist for the last 30 years” and said he believes in “equal rights for women and men, no matter what their sex.”
He has also said women are “better” than men and that he is “very proud of the fact that women and girls and young women are now leading the fight against climate change.”
