Sanders slams Schultz: I know people making $40k ‘who know a lot more about politics’

Sen. Bernie Sanders is accusing former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz of “blackmailing” the Democratic Party.

During an interview Tuesday on CBS “This Morning,” Sanders spoke about his announcement that he’s running for president a second time.

After calling Trump a “pathological liar” and boasting about his socialist wish list, Sanders was asked about Schultz potentially running for president in 2020 as an Independent candidate.

CBS host John Dickerson asked Sanders about Schultz previously stating that he would not run for president if the Democrats nominated a moderate candidate.

“Oh, isn’t that nice?” Sanders mocked. “Why is Howard Schultz on every television station in this country? Why are you quoting Howard Schultz? Because he’s a billionaire.”

“There are a lot of people I know personally, who work hard for a living and make 40, 50 thousand dollars a year, who know a lot more about politics than in all due respect does Mr. Schultz,” Sanders added.
