LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Faiz Shakir, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), repeated the accusation that President Donald Trump had referred to neo-Nazis as “very fine people” in a discussion with Breitbart News in the spin room after Wednesday evening’s Democrat debate.

Shakir had been fending off questions about “Bernie bros,” and accusations that Sanders supporters have been particularly aggressive toward supporters of other candidates.

Breitbart News asked him why, if it was admittedly unfair to judge the Sanders campaign by the actions of a few supporters, Sanders himself appeared to judge Trump by the actions of people on an extremist fringe with no link to the campaign.

Specifically, in a new Internet ad touting Sanders as the possible “first Jewish president,” the campaign uses footage of neo-Nazis marching in Charlottesville in August 2017 and claims the president had referred to them as “very fine people.”
