Bernie Sanders did not waste much time on Hillary Clinton’s coordinated leaks of her book, What Happened.
The Hill reported that Senator Sanders brushed off criticisms of him in relation to Clinton’s 2016 election campaign:
“My response is that right now it’s appropriate to look forward and not backward,” Sanders told The Hill.
“I’m working overtime now to see we overturn Trump’s decision on DACA, pass a $15-an-hour minimum wage, and next week I’ll be offering a Medicare-for-all single-payer system,” he said.
Sanders said he wants to focus on the legislative challenges at hand and not debate who is to blame for President Trump’s stunning electoral upset of Clinton, the Democratic nominee, in November.
“Our job is to go forward,” he said.
Sanders made the comments after attending a Democratic press event responding to Trump’s decision Tuesday to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which President Obama implemented in 2012 to shield from deportation immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
As usual, Bernie followed through with the first of his commitments today, meeting with attendees at the LCLAA 45th Anniversary Conference in DC. In a discussion with Jorge Vargas, one of the takeaways from Sanders was this:
We have a common humanity and a day will come when the color of our skin will not matter!

Seems to me there’s a lot more to be concerned about than the zombies of the 2016 election season.
