Sanders Gets Combative With Reporters Confronting Him Over Staying in the Race

sandersBernie Sanders got combative with reporters at a press conference today who confronted him about why he’s still in the race and how long he plans to keep this up.

One reporter piped up and, after Sanders repeatedly said “excuse me” and tried to call on someone, got to ask him to respond to women who think it’s sexist for him to continue standing in the way of the potential first female president.

Sanders dismissively said that implies any woman running in the race is the best choice and so, logically, “it is sexist for any man to oppose her.”

Another reporter brought up how Sanders keeps saying he will do everything he can to defeat Trump, asking him, “Do you believe that includes trying to thwart Hillary Clinton?”

Sanders shot that down too and kept putting the focus on the outcomes of the final big primary night tomorrow.
