Bernie Sanders Condemns His Supporters’ ‘Ugly, Personal Attacks’ Against Warren

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday condemned his supporters or anyone else who has targeted his presidential primary opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), saying that he is “disgusted” by the personal attacks.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked Sanders about attacks some of his supporters have made, tweeting images of snakes and even calling for Warren to be challenged in a primary in her next Massachusetts Senate election.

Sanders told Maddow he was “actually disgusted” and “aghast” by online vitriol directed at Warren.

“We condemn that,” Sanders said. “We want our supporters to be [talking] about the issues.

“[We] don’t need ugly, personal attacks against Sen. Warren, or anyone else for that measure,” he added.

He said he had a cordial discussion with Warren as she reassesses her campaign, but would not discuss the private conversation with his colleague and opponent.

Asked whether he would consider Warren as a running mate, Sanders said it’s “too early to talk about that.”

However, he said he would “love to sit down and talk to her about what kind of role she could pay in our administration,” adding that he has a lot of respect for the senator.
