Sanders walks out of interview after tense exchange on Arpaio
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Thursday cut short an interview after a tense exchange with a reporter about a meeting between his wife and controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
“What Joe Arpaio is doing is an outrage,” Sanders told reporter Brahm Resnick during an interview with NBC’s local affiliate in Flagstaff, Ariz.
“My wife went to look at the so-called tent city, which is something that should not exist,” he added, referencing a jail operated by the Maricopa County sheriff that is fashioned from military tents.
“The fact that he crashed her meeting is, to me, very, very wrong, not something he should have done. Thank you very much.”
Sanders then stood up, removed his microphone and walked away, ending his discussion with Resnick at the Twin Arrows Casino on the Navajo Nation.
“Would you accept a spot as vice president?” Resnick asked as the Vermont senator walked off.
“[He’s] the first candidate who’s ever walked away,” Resnick said as it became clear Sanders was finished.
