Hillary Clinton suggested in February that many of the young people who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the Democratic primary were unemployed political neophytes who still lived with their parents, according to new audio released this week.
"Some are new to politics completely. They're children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents' basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don't see much of a future," the now-Democratic nominee said at a private fundraiser held in Maclean, Va.
Clinton's remarks came in response to a question about why younger voters tend to be so cynical about government.
