MICTHELL: "She was really offended by that. She told the 'Washington Post,' what did he mean by using that epithet about her. I’m not sure I quite understood it, but is that the way to talk to voters?
SANDERS: “Well, frankly, it was a joke. Many people in the room laughed. Many people in the room laughed and it was a line that he's actually used frequently which is from a John Wayne movie. But look, Andrea, I think the reality here is there is not a better retail politician in America than Joe Biden. I think his -- his ability to reconnect with folks was frankly on display last Wednesday at a town hall on another network. His empathy emanated from him.”
