Sanders on Clinton: 'In Terms of Her Judgment, Something Is Clearly Lacking'

While Senator Bernie Sanders walked back his comments this week that opponent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton isn't qualified to be president, he still has questions about her overall "judgment."

"She may have the experience to be president of the United States. Number one can argue that," Sanders told NBC News' Chuck Todd Sun morning on "Meet the Press."

"But in terms of her judgment, something is clearly lacking," he continued.

Sanders pointed to issues he frequently references when making this point: Clinton'south donations from Wall Street, her vote for the Iraq War, and citing former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger "as a model."

Sanders dismissed suggestions levied by MO Senator Claire McCaskill that his initial comments from a Philadelphia event saying that Clinton isn't "qualified" to keep the office of the presidency, were in some way sexist. McCaskill likened the charge to "fingernails on a blackboard to many women across this country."

"This business about attacking me in that regard is absurd," responded Sanders noting that Clinton "along with her surrogates" have been "going after" him tough ahead of the all important NY Primary.

But the VT senator, who trails Clinton in pledged and super delegates all while having won seven out of the last eight primary contests, insisted that he didn't have to win NY in order to have a path to the nomination.

"What'south objective is to declare that NY is enormously important. There are a whole lot of delegates there. I wish to do as well as I can," Sanders told Todd.

"The polls indicate that we're narrowing the gap and obviously a triumph in NY State, Secretary Clinton'south state that she represented in the Senate, would be an enormous boost for us," he added.

For his part, Sanders is campaigning relentlessly in New York, holding four events in three of NY City'south boroughs on Saturday including a sit down discussion at Harlem'south well-known Apollo Theater.

On Sunday, Sanders heads to Brooklyn'south landmark Coney Island.
