Sanders appeared ready for such a query and replied “it’s interesting that you say that. It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker and love to fight and champion women until they disagree.”

But Stephanopoulos would not get distracted, doubling down with “Every single time the president has taken the side of the man against women accusers.”

Sanders denied the claim (without providing evidence), saying “That’s not true,” before pivoting “In this case, the president knows Brett Kavanaugh. He’s heard his story. There hasn’t been a shred of evidence to corroborate the other individual stories and there has been a lot of individuals that have come forward and talked about the Brett Kavanaugh that they know and they’re confident these things didn’t happen.”
