Sanders: We Have More Things To Worry About Than Bill Clinton’s ‘Sexual Life’

January 3, 2016 11:23 a.m.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump should focus on issues more important than former President Bill Clinton’s “sexual life.”

Trump had criticized 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Twitter and alluded to her husband Bill’s former affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Sanders said on ABC’s “This Week” that he didn’t think Trump’s comments were fair game and suggested the real estate mogul focus on more important issues, such as climate change and tax breaks.

“I think, you know, we have enormous problems facing this country and I think we have got more things to worry about than Bill Clinton’s sexual life,” Sanders said.
