Watch As Bernie's Wife DEFENDS Violent Rhetoric To Wolf Blitzer
"I don't think so..."
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is an open socialist and failed presidential candidate.
One of his former supporters and campaign volunteers attempted to assassinate Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice. He injured five people, one seriously. Fortunately, no one else was hurt.
His wife, Jane Sanders, appeared on CNN to defend the political rhetoric the socialist uses to get his point across.
The Washington Free Beacon reports,
Host Wolf Blitzer asked Jane Sanders if her husband went too far calling Trump "perhaps the worst and most dangerous president in the history of our country" last weekend.
"I don't think so, Wolf," she said. "What's interesting is, that was at the People's Summit, and what I noticed on the weekend was that without any prior discussion, RoseAnn DeMoro, Nina Turner, Van Jones, and I all spoke about being careful and being involved with our policies and with our facts, but not engaging in the politics of personal destruction, that we believed in civil discourse."
Watch the clip below:
Sanders turned her ire on the media, blaming them for how they are reporting on the rhetoric.
"The media, it characterizes every conversation as an adversarial one," Sanders said. "Your job, the media's job, I think, is to illuminate the facts, not fan the flames."
Blitzer pushed back, asking if Sanders wants the media to censure certain items from its reporting.
"With all due respect, if a president or a senator or someone of authority is making very, very strong statements, do you want us to simply ignore those statements?" Blitzer asked. "Do you want us to censor [Bernie Sanders'] words as part of the news media? What are you suggesting?"
"I'm suggesting that just like the Democrats and the Republicans and the independents and the progressives are all thinking about what happened in this presidential race, that the media needs to do some self-reflection as well," Jane Sanders responded.
"We certainly aren't going to censor very strong statements of people of responsibility," Blitzer said.
This conversation feels staged. Sanders critiqued CNN which gave Wolf Blitzer the opportunity to defend the network.
