Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT.) said on Wednesday that the “Republican Party is bankrupt intellectually” adding that the GOP has “demonized” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Appearing on “CBS This Morning” Sanders defended Pelosi arguing Republicans have demonized her because she’s a woman. Sanders went on to slam Republicans claiming they are “bankrupt intellectually” and “they are not going to campaign on their views of giving tax breaks to billionaires and cutting Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid.”
“I think Nancy has done a good job… I think it’s also the fact that she’s a woman. I think they have demonized her, the Republican Party is bankrupt intellectually, they are not going to campaign on their views of giving tax breaks to billionaires and cutting Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, so they have to come up with some demon, I guess their demon right now is Nancy Pelosi,” said Sanders.
“At the end of the day we are 50 states in this country and what gratifies me is… I am seeing an energy level that I have not seen before,” added Sanders.
