CNN: Sanders endorses controversial candidate in California congressional race [View all]

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.
