Really, you’d have thought Bernie Sanders was a rock star. Following the Democratic debate Tuesday at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, the Socialist Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate ended up fleeing the spin room chased by a mob of screaming media, flailing microphones and flashing cameras, MRCTV’s Brittany Hughes reports from the event.
After taking five or six brief questions and enduring more than a few minutes of chaos — during which Sanders may or may not have saved MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell from getting flattened under a storm of high heels and tripod legs — Sanders’ security shoved their way through the mob followed by a tidal wave of humanity. The group fled down a hallway at the Wynn hotel and ducked into a side room, where Sanders’ supporters had previously gathered to watch the debate.
Sanders was then forced to evacuate the floor via a small elevator in a backroom kitchen as hotel and campaign staff slammed the doors on the shrieking crowd behind him.
