Bernie Sanders Complains About HRC Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton

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:

Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign both responded on twitter Wednesday morning to Sanders' criticism.
