Senator Bernie Sanders described the near-fistfight at a Senate hearing as “pretty pathetic” and criticized the behavior, highlighting the importance of addressing real issues rather than incidents of similar nature.
He expressed concern that the focus on controversial moments in hearings detracts from the substance of discussions on critical national challenges like wealth inequality and climate change.
“Well, it’s pretty pathetic,” Sanders pressed.
“I mean, we have a United States senator challenging, you know, a member of the panel who is the head of one of the larger unions in America, which has just negotiated a very good contract for their workers, the Teamsters.”
“This is what goes on in a Senate hearing, and that’s why the American people are getting sick and tired at what goes on here in Congress.”
