Former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders called-out “conservative Democrats” during a recent interview this week; saying they had intentionally misinterpreted his comments about Barack Obama.
Sanders was speaking with Al Sharpton when he was asked to comment on his recent “controversial” statements; adding that “conservative” members of the Democratic party were playing politics with his previous remarks.
“We have conservative Democrats who will take anything I say and take it out of context. What I said is that if you look at what’s happening to the Democratic party over the last 10 years, the party’s lost about 1,000 legislative seats,” said Sanders.
“That is not a business model of success for the Democratic party. Sometimes we forget about that because we had an extraordinary candidate [in Barack Obama],” he added.
