“There are real crises facing this country. When I give a speech, often it’s 45 minutes or an hour, OK? Because there are a lot of challenges that the country faces, and I’ve got to talk about them,” Sanders continued, before launching into a critique of Biden.

“You know, I think Joe was somewhere — where was he, I don’t know — Michigan or some place else the other day, and he spoke for seven minutes. I don’t know how you say anything other than, you know, minimal discussion in seven minutes,” Sanders said.
