Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders addresses an incident this past week where activists of the Black Lives Matter movement disrupted a campaign event and took over the microphone while the presidential hopeful was giving a stump speech. Sanders told Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd he has no apologies for them:
CHUCK TODD: Buzzfeed has an article out this morning. Headline is this: "Sanders Campaign Reaches Out to Black Lives Matter Activists." Quote, "I apologize it took our campaign so long." Tell me more about it.
BERNIE SANDERS: Well, that was sent out by a staffer, not by me. Look, we are reaching out to all kinds of groups, absolutely.
CHUCK TODD: I understand that but, you said a staffer put it out, but you felt an apology was necessary?
BERNIE SANDERS: No, I don't. I think we're going to be working with all groups. This was sent out without my knowledge.
