A New York Times reporter asked Bernie Sanders on Monday if it is sexist for him to continue running for president against what could be the nation’s first female president in Hillary Clinton.
Sanders bristled at the question but also laughed and asked if the reporter, Yamiche Alcindor, was being serious.
The exchange occurred after Sanders opened up his press conference in Emeryville, Calif. to questions from reporters. He pointed to one member of the press in the audience, but Alcindor appears to have jumped in with a question. Sanders attempted to cut her off, saying “excuse me” several times.
