The moment happened when the moderators asked Clinton about Sanders’ criticism of Bill Clinton and President Obama.

“Maybe it's that Senator Sanders wasn't really a Democrat until he decided to run for president,” she said of the Vermont independent who decided last year to compete for the Democratic nomination. "He doesn't know what the last two Democratic presidents did.”

The crowd booed, but Clinton was unfazed.

"Well, it's true. It's true,” she said. “You know it's true.”
