Sen. Bernie Sanders was in a no-holds-barred mood on Sunday when he called out Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, referring to them as “saboteurs.”
He argued that both senators have “sabotaged” President Joe Biden’s agenda.
“You got two members of the Senate, Sen. Manchin and Sen. Sinema, who have sabotaged what the president has been fighting for,” Sanders told NBC’s Chuck Todd in an interview on “Meet the Press.”
Todd responded that “sabotage” was a “strong word” to use, but Sanders doubled down on his criticism of his Democratic colleagues.
Sanders, a Vermont independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, also serves on Senate Democratic leadership with Manchin.
“You got 48 members of the Senate who wanted to go forward with an agenda that helped working families, that was prepared to take on the wealthy and the powerful,” Sanders said. “You got a president who wanted to do that. You had two people who prevented us from doing it.”
