Bernie Adviser Nina Turner Blasts Audience from Black Women’s Forum for Booing Senator’s MLK Comments

‘You don’t boo folks for that’

TURNER: "Senator Bernie Sanders is consistent. And that consistency means something. You know, people want to strip him of his history, and don't know in what world, and I'm going to say this, Fort Worth, because this happened in Houston, and I want people to hear me clearly. I don't know in what world, when you start to tell people about your lived experiences, and all of us have lived experiences, all of us have a story to tell, but in what world when you're sitting on the stage telling folks about your history, and
and you mention the fact that you were on the March on Washington with Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — (cheers) Forth Worth, in what world do people boo that? That happened to Senator Sanders yesterday and I'm calling it out. In what world? You don't boo folks for that. And I don't care if it was somebody who I didn't care about their policies. If they stood up with the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other heroes and sheroes, we need to shout that out! (cheers) That's it. #tangibles"
