George Stephanopoulos recently asked Bernie Sanders why he’s supporting Hillary Clinton at this time. Bernie’s first response: Donald Trump. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"GMA host George Stephanopoulos referenced two Facebook posts from disgruntled Sanders supporters: "You broke my heart and betrayed the Left, Sen. Sanders," said one person. "You chose her over us," said another.
"What do you say to your supporters who feel betrayed," Stephanopoulos asked.
"What I say is it is absolutely imperative for the future of this country that Donald Trump not be elected President of the United States," Sanders responded. "At a time when this country has enormous crises, we do not, and can not have a man with Trump's temperament with the nuclear code and running the country."
"So it is about the lesser of two evils?" Stephanopoulos followed up.
"No, it is not about the lesser of two evils," Sanders replied. "If you look at issue by issue, we have Hillary Clinton who wants to significantly raise the minimum wage — we have millions of workers in this country working on starvation wages. We have Donald Trump who wants to let states have the right to do away with the concept of the minimum wage. People could be working for five bucks an hour.””*
