Check out the transcript below.
Q: You said yesterday, the middle class is still getting crushed.
Q: Donald Trump supporters, Bernie Sanders supporters, are reflecting, the polls tell us, a lot of middle-class anxiety in this country. How much of that is your fault?
A: It’s legitimate criticism
Q: Bernie’s a socialist. He wants a revolution; it’s understandable that he’s saying everything is awful. But Hillary’s kind of running as the heir to you guys. Have you been surprised that she’s essentially saying the same thing, but also it’s even worse because there’s sexism and racism and homophobia?
A: The only thing I can figure is, they both have large campaign organization, with a lot of smart people that are probably politically smarter than I am. They must say there’s no way to sell a positive message. I don’t know.
Q: Bernie has a particular critique of the economy: the banks are still massively dangerous, everything is working for the 1%, nobody is getting ahead. What do you make of it?
A: I think his conclusory comment is correct. The way everything is stacked up now, it’s all going to the 1%…There are half a dozen votes I regret, out of about 18,000. One of them is the repeal of Glass-Steagall. It was part of a big package. But it was wrong.”
