What Do You Think About Bernie Sanders' Mental Health Joke
In a shot at the Republican presidential candidates, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made a joke about mental health during the Democratic debate in Flint, Michigan, on Sunday night.
“We are, if elected president, going to invest a lot of money into mental health,” the Vermont senator said, according to Business Insider. “And when you watch these Republican debates, you know why we need to address the mental health.”
His comment was met with applause, but on Twitter some thought the line was insensitive:

My mental health is not a joke. It does not make me a racist, judgmental, sexist person. That was a despicable comment.
