LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Well, now they're saying, "How dare you, Bernie [Sanders]. How dare you stay in this race." Now, what if Bernie were a minority? Oh he is kind of. He's a socialist, so. But what if Bernie were a minority? What if he were a 74-year-old black man who was arguing for these? Would you think they'd be telling him to get out of the race? I don't think so. They can -- I think this is ageism. Don't you think this is ageism against Bernie? Although Hillary's not any spring chicken herself, so. But I think, maybe he should just start raising that as an issue, but they say he wants to have some input on the platform, so that might be also what's going on with Bernie Sanders.

Oh, OK, you're reminding me. Bernie is a minority. He's Jewish. OK. See I don't think of Jewish people as minorities because they're so successful and so. But, yeah, that's technically correct so I appreciate that correction on our Twitter feed.
