Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has gone after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for having a shallow understanding of foreign policy, but Sanders apparently has his own grievances against one of the people he says Clinton has turned to for foreign policy advice.

“I happen to believe that Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive secretaries of state in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said at Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate, referring to Clinton citing the former secretary of state’s praise for her work in that same position.

“I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend. I will not take advice from Henry Kissinger,” he added.

Clinton fired back at Sanders, saying he should disclose who’s been advising him on the subject.

“Well, I know journalists have asked who you do listen to on foreign policy and we have yet to know who that is,” she said.

“Well, it ain’t Henry Kissinger, that’s for sure,” Sanders quipped.
