Bernie Sanders suffered an ill-timed “technical issue” during a live interview over the weekend that may have saved him from praising President Trump.
During an appearance on “Face The Nation,” the 76-year-old socialist was asked if he was happy corporations are giving out bonuses and raises in response to the tax cut championed by the president and Republicans.
After being told the tax cuts are “gaining in popularity,” Sanders was asked, “Are you glad that these people have more money in their pockets.”
Awkwardly staring at the camera,” Sanders looked up and said, “Are we having a technical issue here?”
“Senator, can you hear me?” guest host Nancy Cordes asked.
After more painful moments of silence, she said, “Alright, it appears we have lost our audio connection with Sen. Sanders…”
The socialist senator never did answer the question.
