Jane Sanders, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), said Wednesday that her husband’s widely panned interview with the New York Daily News was “more of an inquisition.”

Jane Sanders told CNN that she thought the candidate’s hour-long interview with the tabloid’s editorial board was “odd.”

“We commented on that afterwards, that it was more of an inquisition, hurry, hurry, interrupt, let’s ask the questions don’t let you even finish your answers,” Sanders said. “We didn’t realize they had planned to release the transcript. So it became a little bit more evident what they were trying to do.”

When the transcript was published last week, Bernie Sanders was criticized for appearing to struggle to explain some of his campaign talking points, including detailing how he would break up big banks.

The New York tabloid endorsed Sanders’ rival, Hillary Clinton, in a Wednesday editorial. The primary is April 19.
