Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joked on Tuesday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that the long campaign season might not be the best way to elect someone to our highest office.

Host Jimmy Kimmel said the election season seemed to be never-ending.

“It has been going on forever,” Sanders replied.

He added, jokingly, “I’m not quite sure this is the best way to elect a president to be honest with you.”

Plus, campaigning for president is much different than being president.

“I think being a great president is having great people around you, the smartest people, the most knowledgeable people, and dealing with the important issues in our country,” Sanders said. “It’s not necessarily spending 15 hours a day, seven days a week, running around the country.”
