CBS “This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell on Monday pressed Bernie Sanders on his primary battle with Hillary Clinton, asking him if he feels any “guilt” or “responsibility” about her stunning loss.
“Do you bear some responsibility in raising some of those concerns? Do you feel any guilt about her loss?” O’Donnell asked.
Sanders let out a chuckle and then responded:
“Well, I guess if we believe somebody who the establishment brings forward has a right to be anointed and nobody should run against, I guess, yes.”
Democrats have been looking for someone to blame ever since Donald Trump defeated Clinton in one of the most shocking upsets in election history.
All the data and polling available indicated a convincing Clinton victory — but the election turned out much differently. Trump won several key battleground states, even turning Wisconsin red for the first time since Ronald Reagan did it in 1984.
The Clinton campaign was so certain of their candidate’s victory, aides reportedly popped a bottle of champagne on the campaign plane early on Election Day.
