Because 2016 is the election that just won't die, we've come full circle and we're back to Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders.

That's right, it's like the past four years never happened at all.

Last night, a segment from a new Hulu documentary "leaked" (by which we mean, The Hollywood Reporter published it). In it, Hillary Clinton apparently says:

He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him.

Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done.

He was a career politician. It's all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.

She also refused to say whether or not she would endorse him were he to win the nomination. (Bernie Sanders did endorse Clinton the last time around, but to say it was lukewarm would be generous.)

While she sounds a little salty, there's hardly huge tea here – the two aren't exactly close and their supporters notoriously do not see eye to eye when it comes to, well, anything much.

Still, people were INTO the drama, with those in the Bernie camp calling it a smear. Some even argued this was a good thing for Sanders:

Perhaps the weirdest person to come out in support of Sanders was... Kellyanne Conway. Yes, that's Trump adviser Kellyanne 'Alternative Facts' Conway.

It's unsurprising to see the Trump administration be this consumed with its own ego. Yet, this takes it to another level, proving Trump's supporters care so much about getting a dig in at Hillary Clinton that they're willing to do so even if it means making his potential opponent look better. After all, Trump will not be facing off against Hillary Clinton in the election, no matter what happens in the primary.

Meanwhile, Clinton stans were here for her truth.

And pointed out that no matter which route she takes, the haters will never let her have a win.

For what it's worth, Clinton has sort-of clarified, tweeting today that the priority was beating Trump, and she'd do whatever she could to make that happen, essentially implying she would support Sanders if it came to it.

Meanwhile, Sanders has clarified that on a good day at least his wife likes him, so that's a start.

This is the second high-profile in-party feud for Sanders this month, after his friendship with Elizabeth Warren disintegrated when his campaign accused hers of lying about comments Sanders allegedly made, saying a woman could never be president.

Next week, Amy Klobuchar?
