She says Trump’s favorite animal is probably an elephant, the symbol of the Republican party. And she said his favorite candy is pink and red Starbursts.

Sanders also got questions about Ronny Jackson’s decision to withdraw from consideration as Veterans Affairs secretary, and why Trump fired ex-FBI Director James Comey.

But she stayed on message, saying Comey “did some things that weren’t really very nice.”
