Has Bernie Sanders turned sexist?

He has had some good ideas,
but this ends any good
feelings we had about him.
    Bernie Sanders has suddenly started making statements that Hillary Clinton is NOT qualified to be President.  A former Senator and Secretary of State NOT qualified??

   It does seem that he is really saying that a "woman" is not qualified to be President! Sad, that in desperation, Sanders may be turning sexist.
