CNN: Sanders endorses controversial candidate in California congressional race

The media figure's litany of controversial statements also includes a 2013 comment in which he argued bestiality should be legal in some cases.
"Here comes the controversial part, the part I shouldn't say," Uygur said during "The Young Turks" program, according to video posted online. "I believe that if I were the benevolent dictator of the world, I would legalize bestiality where you are giving ... you are pleasuring the animal."
During past episodes of his "Young Turks" program, Uygur has also made demeaning comments about the sex lives of lesbians and invited former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke for a segment about his anti-Semitic view of Judaism.
While Uygur has disavowed some of these remarks, Sanders' endorsement is not sitting well with some of the Vermont independent's supporters in California.

When do we stop making excuses?

12. And Gray is still there, no?

 

Showing that supporting the election of Trump in 2016 is not a no-go from Sanders.

But in ourselves..."

6. Uygur is far worse than merely "controversial". He's said some highly offensive things....

 

....over the years.

8. Cenk is toxic. It reflects poorly on the judgement of anyone who would endorse him.

11. I do not care about the bestiality. Cenk is totally disrespectful to women.

 

Bottom line, he does not think of women at all unless they are fuckable, and their worth in that. Sanders supports a man that thinks so little of women and has had a career of promoting that disrespect. Anna, his gal at hand has told the audience from the conception that meh... Womens fault if we have a problem with Cenks disgusting attitude toward women.

Sanders ignored this. Doesn't care. Even the disclaimer is about those supporters that had issue with Cenks attitude toward women. Not the very attitude. Sanders has, time and again, made clear that women have a back seat when it comes to his agenda for the most picked upon group. White men.

I do not know what it takes for us to believe Sanders when he tells us over and again that women are not important to him.

That old b* teacher.

His disrespect for women is evident over decades. The 2016 campaign of harassment and abuse. To today, repeatedly hiring men that are misogynist.

This is not a simple misstep. It is who Sanders is.

13. Well said.

 

It is a pattern over years with Sanders. He just can't help himself, because it is who he is.
