When Asked If The Leaded Audio Of Clinton Classifying Sanders’ Supporters And Ideas In A Negative Way Was A Problem For Sanders He Said “Of Course It Does.” CNN’S JAKE TAPPER: “I get that Senator. But she’s calling other ideas you pitched, not the ones you two are working on together, but she called other ones ‘false promises’ and said that what you were doing was indefensible. That must bother you.” SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (D-VT): “Well look, of course it does, but we’re in the middle of a campaign, and I, trust me, if you go to some of the statements that I made about Hillary Clinton you can see real differences. So we have differences, that’s nothing to be surprised about. That’s what a campaign is all about.” (CNN’s “State Of The Union,” 10/2/16)
