Hillary Clinton is on the hot seat again, as she has made yet another controversial statement on the campaign trail, making even more people angered.

At MSNBC's Democratic Town Hall in Las Vegas, Nevada, Clinton was answering questions from the crowd. Both Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders took questions before the Nevada caucuses, which will took place tonight (February 20). When asked a question about her competitor for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton went in for the kill.

"I just don't know where this comes from," Hillary Clinton said. "Maybe it's because Senator Sanders wasn't really a Democrat until he decided to run for president."

After that, some people in the audience began to boo. It seems that multiple people in the audience were "feeling the Bern" and did not appreciate Clinton's statement. Sanders does identify as a Democratic Socialist.

Clinton, however, did not back down from her statement, and continued on.

"He doesn't even know what the last two Democratic presidents did," she said. "It's true, it's true. You know it's true. And I've got to tell you, I look at our last two Democratic presidents, were they perfect? No. No person is. But I'll tell you I would take the two of them over any Republican anytime, anywhere."

That seemingly changed the group'd mind, and they started to applaud her again. Hillary Clinton was trying to win the voters over, as her and Sanders were tied in the state's polls.

"I don't want to make promises I can't keep," Clinton told the Nevada voters. The presidential hopeful was even quicker to call out Republican hopeful Donald Trump, while simultaneously praising herself. "I was the first person to call out Donald Trump."

Clinton, one of the first females to run for President of the United States, also answered questions about Pope Francis, his fight with Donald Trump, and Barack Obama's trip to Cuba.

As president, Clinton thinks that when working and creating relations with other countries, women's rights, and gay rights, should be the top priority.

"I looked across the table at dictators and authoritarians and chauvinists and sexists and misogynists," Clinton said. "And I raised it [the topic of sexism] with every one of them."
