Yesterday, the Human Rights Campaign - the largest LGBT advocacy organization in the country - officially endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president.
This news did not sit well with her current opponent for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders, who - to be fair - has also been an ally to the LGBT community for years, just as Hillary Clinton has.
Planned Parenthood also chose to endorse Clinton.
Appearing on MSNBC last night he opined:
"What we are doing in this campaign -- and it just blows my mind every day, because I see it clearly, we're taking on not only Wall Street and the economic establishment, we're taking on the political establishment."
"And so I have friends and supporters in the Human Rights Fund, in Planned Parenthood," Sanders continued. "But you know what, Hillary Clinton has been around there for a very, very long time and some of these groups are, in fact, part of the establishment."
THAT comment didn't sit well with Hillary Clinton, who immediately tweeted:
Really Senator Sanders? How can you say that groups like @PPact and @HRC are part of the "establishment" you're taking on? -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 20, 2016
Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign both responded on twitter Wednesday morning to Sanders' criticism.
We respect @SenSanders. Disappointed to be called "establishment" as we fight like hell to protect women's health. https://t.co/kiimTsVw2x— Planned Parenthood (@PPact) January 20, 2016
We share @PPact's disappointment in Sanders' attacks. @HRC has proudly taken on the establishment & fought for LGBT people for over 30 years— HumanRightsCampaign (@HRC) January 20, 2016
