Bernie Sanders asked if it is sexist because he is ‘standing in the way’ of Hillary Clinton’s nomination
Earlier today Bernie Sanders was asked if it was sexist for him to stand in the way of Hillary Clinton’s nomination, here is how it went down:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) incredulously responded to a reporter at a press conference today in Emeryville, Calif., who asked if his continued challenge of Hillary Clinton is sexist.
Sanders at first tried to call on another reporter who was raising his hand as a female reporter interjected with her question, asking what the senator would say to women who say his staying in the race “is sexist because you’re standing in the way of who could be the first female president.”
Sanders chuckled and replied, “Is that a serious question?”
“Yes, it is a serious question,” the reporter shot back.
“Any woman who is running for president — your question implies that any woman, that any person, any woman who is running for president is by definition the best candidate,” Sanders said.
“So if Hillary Clinton runs for president, is your point that it is sexist for any man to oppose her?” he added.
“No, my point is if she has more delegates than you tomorrow –” the reporter said.
“Well, that’s another point… I don’t think it is sexist. I think that the issue is, first of all, our focus right now is running and winning right here in California,” Sanders said.
“And the second point I’ve made is that it is absolutely imperative that we defeat Donald Trump as a candidate for president of the United States. I believe I am the strongest candidate,” Sanders said.
This was a ridiculous question to ask so Bernie Sanders was justified in feeling incredulous for having to answer it. After all this was probably the last question he expected from the mainstream media, this type of question is usually reserved for Republican candidates so he must have been shocked that the intellectual fascism, more popularly known as political correctness, actually came back to haunt him.
I have to admit I found it quite enjoyable…
