Bernie Sanders continued his media tour ahead of the release of his book and following the results of Election 2016, sharing plenty of thoughts on Donald Trump and what needs to happen next for America. He echoes a lot of what he’s been posting online and in public appearances, but he’s also striking directly at the president-elect when given the chance. Conan asks him a few direct questions about Trump’s recent Twitter antics and his meetings with Mitt Romney, prompting the senator from Vermont to refer to the messages as “delusional and insane” and say that Romney was right when he called Trump a con man.
Sanders also decides to strike at the media for their insistence on covering Trump at every turn and waiting too long to put some checks out on him. It’s hard to curb on the Trump coverage when you’ve been a heavy user for a year or more, but there’s definitely something to be done. Today’s burning flag coverage knocks that sentiment home.
