Bernie Sanders made an appearance on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' last night and used the time to respond to Hillary Clinton's recent accusations that he is responsible in some way for her losing the 2016 election, as well as try and find something nice to say about Donald Trump at Stephen's request.
Sanders got a hero's welcome on arrival in the studio but it was straight into the hard-hitting questions as Colbert brought up Clinton's new book on the 2016 election, 'What Happened' and asked Sanders for his response to her claims that Bernie and his supporters as having deliberately misrepresented her.
"We have got to think 'Going Forward'," he replied. "I would like her to join us in the fight for a Medicare-for-all single payer system, in taking on the fossil fuel industry so we transform our energy system away from fossil fuel and move toward sustainable energy.
"We need her help to go forward. Letâ€™s not keep arguing about 2016. Letâ€™s get together, take on Trumpâ€™s desire to divide us up. Letâ€™s go forward with a progressive agenda.
"Ask her if she will do that," which got a massive response from the audience.
As for saying something nice about the current President, he struggled but he got there eventually.
