‘Because there are a lot of people all over the world that are really hacked off that they think the system’s rigged against them and the rich get all the gains’

COLBERT: "The president-- President Obama in 2012 campaign called you 'Secretary of Explaining Stuff.' Could you explain three things to me very quickly. I know "quick" is a tough word sometimes. The first one is why do you think Bernie Sanders is doing so well?"
CLINTON: "Because there are a lot of people all over the world that are really hacked off that they think the system's rigged against them and the rich get all the gains. And in America, a lot of them believe that the Republicans have been rewarded for-- they reward the people that go the furthest to the right. So the Democrats would be even more effective if they moved further to the left."
