Again, security not a concern for these people….
Twenty-four hours after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris left at least 129 people dead, top campaign officials for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders have made it clear the independent senator from Vermont isn’t that interested in talking about it.
After being informed the agenda of Saturday night’s debate on CBS had been shifted in light of the siege of Paris, a top Sanders aide “threw a fit” during a conference call with producers and other campaign staffers, a staffer for a rival campaign told Yahoo News. The aide’s concern: Expecting a presidential candidate to shift focus due to an unanticipated international incident isn’t fair.
“It was a little bit of a bizarre scene,” the staffer told Yahoo News. “The Sanders representative, you know, really laid into CBS and basically … kind of threw, like, a little bit of a fit and said, ‘You are trying to turn this into a foreign policy debate. That’s not what any of us agreed to. How can you change the terms of the debate, you know, on the day of the debate. That’s not right.'”
Another source told CNN that the aide, identified as strategist Mark Longabaugh, was greeted with stunned silence after the outburst.
“Once CBS informed the campaigns the debate was going to kick off with a focus on the attacks in Paris last night, [Longabaugh] completely lost it,” the source said. “He threw a fit for several minutes.”
