Watch: Bernie Sanders Jokes About “CNN Fake News,” Mysteriously Gets Disconnected Moments Later

It turns out even Bernie Sanders isn’t safe from well-timed “technical difficulties.”

Last night, while speaking with Erin Burnett, the host of CNN’s OutFront, Sanders was asked to comment on President Donald Trump’s denial of knowledge concerning reports that Mike Flynn had secret talks with the Russian government.

“Well, I dunno, maybe he was watching CNN fake news – what do you think?” piped Sanders.

A few seconds of awkward silence followed, after which Sanders quipped, “that was a joke.”

Then, mysteriously, Sanders appeared to lose contact with the host.

“Erin? Are we on?”

See the full painfully awkward clip below.

Some, like Mike Cernovich, think CNN’s producers deliberately cut Sanders off for his comment.

The show’s producers eventually did get Bernie Sanders back on air. You can watch their full interview below.

    HAHAHAH! Wow. Erin Burnett is a rough skank – and this was just great – Zucker must be ripping what little hair he has out of his bald head. Your news net is a joke, fat man!

      Don’t be an ass. He didn’t bow out. The stupid heads of the dnc decided to screw him and his supporters over by throwing all their support behind Clinton. I’ll Never forgive them for that.

      Bernie did however decide to stand by Clinton, which lost him respect points, and ultimately the manner in which he did that was one of several reasons that Clinton lost the electoral votes she needed.

        Your response is essentially what I was referring to by the way.

          My bad.
          I agree then. I’d love for him to call out all those morons that shafted him.

            It’s cool, after you posted your comment I realized that I could have been ALOT more clear, so in a sense you’ve helped me to understand that things may come across in a different way than I intended for them to come across.

        The ONLY reason Bernie stood behind Clinton is because he didn’t want to “accidentally” have an accident on the way home. Come on now.

          as if anyone would waste time with that. As much as I’d love to vote for him in 2020 (assuming he runs), not too many think he’ll even be around or finish that term if he won. He’s getting on in years.

          there are many who say clinton fits the republican bill more than the democratic one considering her views (previous views) and how rich she is, but either way, even with drumpf in office, I’m glad I didn’t vote for her.

      You must be joking. He chose his career over his own rhetoric. If he believed half the shit that comes out of his own mouth he would have run as an Independent. He chose his career over his supporters. And can anyone remember how he stood in the corner while BLM took over his stage? Yeah, real manly that one. LOL
