Bernie Sanders Scolds Reporter for Hair Remark: ‘Do You Have Serious Questions?’

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders chided prominent feminist blogger Ana Marie 🤬 for asking him about coverage of his and Hillary Clinton’s hair during an otherwise serious New York Times Magazine interview.

After asking Sanders about his professed socialism and his brush with #BlackLivesMatter protests, 🤬 moved on to the really important issues. “Do you think it’s fair that Hillary’s hair gets a lot more scrutiny than yours does?” she asked.

“Hillary’s hair gets more scrutiny than my hair?” he responded. “Is that what you’re asking?”

“Yeah,” she affirmed.

“O.K., Ana, I don’t mean to be rude here. I am running for president of the United States on serious issues, O.K.?” Sanders shot back. “Do you have serious questions?”

“I can defend that as a serious question,” 🤬 responded. “There is a gendered reason– ”

“When the media worries about what Hillary’s hair looks like or what my hair looks like, that’s a real problem,” Sanders cut in. “We have millions of people who are struggling to keep their heads above water, who want to know what candidates can do to improve their lives, and the media will very often spend more time worrying about hair than the fact that we’re the only major country on earth that doesn’t guarantee health care to all people.”

Things like this are reasons why I support a Sanders nomination. It's refreshing to see a political candidate that doesn't put up with the media's fuckery. He always keeps the conversation on the issues.

What say you? Was he rude in his response to the reporter or was he correct for setting her and her peers straight in regards to what will be tolerated in interviews with him.

    Bernie Sanders strikes me as being very aggressive, I like that. unfortunately he's also a socialist liberal and therefore can never have my vote

    "There is a gendered reason--"

    Not only have I not heard anyone seriously discussing Hilary's hair but she's also given credence to the few 🤬 who are saying that by bringing it up in such an interview.

    I understand what she was trying to do, but she used a very dumb example to try and prove her point.

    I don't think Bernie is going to win the Primary unless Hillary is arrested for her email scandal.. However, I don't want him to. I want to see what will happen if he and Trump both run as independents and splinter the vote from both parties. This can be the first serious step to a multi-party or no-party system in this country.
