Bloomberg Adviser Hits "Loopy" Bernie: Said Toddlers "Should Run Around Naked and Touch Each Other's Genitals"

|

Bloomberg senior advisor Tim O’Brien attacked Bernie Sanders Tuesday morning over comments the senator made in a 1970s essay on psychology, social norms, and pornography.

"Bernie has loopy stuff in his background, saying women get cancer from having too many orgasms or toddlers should run around naked and touch each other’s genitals to insulate themselves from porn?" O’Brien said.

In one particular essay, Sanders said that if young children were allowed to run around and play naked "it will probably ruin the whole pornography business... which makes its money by playing on people’s sexual frustrations."

TIM O'BRIEN, BLOOMBERG CAMPAIGN: his happened before the debate. Bernie's team put out falsehoods about Mike that we had to answer.

Bernie has gone through this campaign without behind held accountable. He hasn't been vetted as thoroughly by the media as some of the other candidates. Other Democrats on the stage haven't challenged him on the debate stage as much as they challenge each other. And, Bernie has a very trippy record, to say the least.

CAMEROTA: Look, I hear you but, I mean, it's still a Democratic primary. You're still -- if you're trying to avoid the circular firing squad, this is still the circular firing squad if you're going after another Democrat.

O'BRIEN: But we've got a candidate who's got a better record. We've got a candidate who has more governing experience than anybody on that stage. We've got a candidate who has risen in the polls because of his track record.

Bernie has all of this loopy stuff in his background, saying things like women get cancer from having too many orgasms or toddlers should run around naked and touch each other's genitals to insulate --

CAMEROTA: I'm sorry, what?

O'BRIEN: -- themselves from porn.

CAMEROTA: What?

O'BRIEN: Why has this stuff not been more surfaced? He's written about women's rape fantasies. That hasn't been surfaced. That's the looney side of Bernie.

The policy side of Bernie is he has not been good at immigration, he has not been good on criminal justice reform. He was an avid backer of the '94 crime bill. He's bad on guns, bad on immigration.

And as a legislator -- as a member of the Senate, I think he's only sponsored seven pieces of legislation; two for post offices in Vermont.
