WATCH: Bernie Sanders Tells Maddow GOP "Getting Away With Murder" In Debates
You're not the only one reeling from Wednesday night's three-hour GOP debate saga. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders went on The Rachel Maddow Show last night to share some of his own thoughts -- and outrage -- over what he saw as the media letting the GOP go largely unchallenged.
"Republicans are getting away with murder," Sanders told Maddow. "They are never challenged. I quit watching after two hours, all the energy was drained from my body."
Sanders pointed out issues like climate change, minimum wage, healthcare, medical leave, and higher taxes were nowhere to be found. He went on to pitch his cross-over appeal to Ms. Maddow, explaining why his populist message could readily win over moderates and independents.
"To the best of my knowledge, we won 25% of Republicans in Vermont," Sanders says. "'Okay," people say. 'I don't agree with Bernie on women's rights, or gay rights. But I believe he is fighting for me and my kids and for the rights of the middle class. And you see a lot of those folks."
