Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday, arguing the senator has been inadequate in his response to harassment members of Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union say they’ve faced from some of Sanders’s online supporters after the group took aim at Sanders’s health care proposal.
In an interview with Meet the Press’s Chuck Todd that aired Sunday, Biden said the democratic socialist candidate “may not be responsible for it, but he has some accountability.”
“You know me well enough to know if any of my supporters did that, I’d disown them. Flat disown them,” Biden told Todd. “The stuff that was said online. The way they threatened these two women who are leaders in that culinary union. It is outrageous.”
