Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) has engaged in sexist criticisms of Democratic presidential primary opponent Hillary Clinton, anchor Richard Wolffe played for his audience a Clinton campaign ad centered on the issue of &quot;equal pay,&quot; underscoring how the former first lady is running on feminist themes to fire up female Democratic voters in New Hampshire and Iowa.</p>
