Sanders angrily responded that the allegations against his wife must be politically motivated because the complaint was started by Brady Toensing, a chairman for the Trump campaign in Vermont. Sanders might be forgiven for giving the "not what I'm talking about today" line a whirl, though; Democrats often find a sympathetic, narrative-advancing audience in the press corps.
"I'm glad that you're interested in the fact that the Republican leadership is proposing legislation which would throw millions of people off of health insurance and give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the top 1 percent", he said.

But the deal fell through when the alleged strategy failed to take shape; Mrs. Sanders left the college in 2011, and the school shut down five years later. "That's pretty pathetic. And that's where we are right now, and that's all that I want to say".More news: Rihanna's secret boyfriend revealed as Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel
