Bernie Sanders was straight to the point speaking with Rachel Maddow Friday night. The Democratic presidential candidate called Republicans “political cowards” for trying to restrict voting rights in America.

“Maybe this is personal because I run for office. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win,” said Sanders. “It has never occurred to me as a candidate to figure out a way to deny the vote to people because they might vote against me. People who do that are political cowards. They’re afraid of a fair election.”

“What Republicans are doing is so un-American, so outrageous. It is literally beyond belief,” he said. “They’re political cowards and if they can’t face a free election, they should get another job.”
