Sanders says he’s ‘not comfortable’ with supporters shutting down Clinton rally
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asked Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders about an “acrimonious” protest at a Hillary Clinton rally in Los Angeles this week.
Maddow asked the Vermont senator what he thought of his supporters repeatedly interrupting Clinton’s event in Southern California on Thursday.
“We have never asked, and I’m not comfortable with people disrupting other people’s meetings,” Sanders said. “They have the right to protest… Not my style to see people disrupting other people’s meetings. I’ve had meetings disrupted, I don’t like it.”
He said anyone has the right to protest.
“We had nothing to do with that,” he said. “I mean, that’s what people––you know, we have millions of supporters and people all over the country do their thing. If people want to protest outside, absolutely, that’s their right to do that.”
