Washington journalist: Democratic candidates 'assumed the premise' that Sanders would take most delegates to convention
Hill.TV's Saagar Enjeti rips Sanders over handling of feud with Warren
Hill.TV host Saagar Enjeti criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday for his handling of this week's CNN report that the Vermont independent said a woman couldn't win a presidential election during a private meeting with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) in 2018.
"How do you sit there as a man and somebody calls you a sexist and then a liar ... and you're a front-runner in the Democratic race and you just sit there and take it?" Enjeti asked.
"I mean is that how you're going to run?" he added.
Tensions between Warren and Sanders reached a new high during Tuesday night's Democratic debate when the candidates were asked about the CNN report.
Sanders flatly denied ever making such a statement, saying "anyone who knows me know that it is incomprehensible that I do not think a woman could be president of the United States."
Warren, who confirmed the report, doubled down on her position following Sanders's denial and confronted him about the issue following the debate.
"I think you called me a liar on national TV," Warren said to Sanders, according to audio released a day after the exchange.
The senators have yet to make amends, even as a number of progressive groups call for unity.
