Sen. Bernie Sanders will be dismissed no more. At least that’s the message Sanders delivered today on The Mitchell Report when host, Andrea Mitchell mentioned the negative impact of Sander’s continued presence in the Democratic primary and how it will negative impact Hillary Clinton (who I believe is doing enough damage all by herself but that’s another post.
Sanders interrupted Mitchell in the middle of her spiel, reminding Mitchell of his 19 wins and ongoing battle with the Progressive establishment. Talk about setting the record straight, an enjoyable moment even for those of us who are not supporters of crazy Communist, Bernie.
MITCHELL: “Isn’t the bomb ohm line that she is now fighting a war on two fronts, getting beaten up by Donald Trump on a daily sis. He has been embracing you, building you up. She’s fighting Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.”
SANDERS: “Andrea, no, I don’t accept that proposition. Last I heard Hillary Clinton is running for president of the United States. I am running for president of the United States. Trump is running for president of the United States. I have gotten attacks and attacks and attacked. The issue of this campaign is to go out to the American people and talk about why the American people are ING and struggling. We have to make that case. That’s what we intend to do.”
MITCHELL: “I’m just saying, sir, that the oppositions have been built up by Donald Trump hammering at her. Up until now he has not been going after you as much. She is fighting two candidates and you’re fighting one.”
SANDERS: “Andrea, in every state we have one, in 19 states we have had to take on the entire democratic establishment. We’ve had to take on senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress. That’s what we have taken on, so please do not moan to me about Hillary Clinton’s problems. I’m in this race to win. We’re taking on the democratic establishment, standing up for working people and we have a shot. It is a steep hill to climb but we’re going to fight for every last vote we can get, every delegate we can get.”
