I guarantee you that that Mr. Costa thought that he had a great “gotcha” question here, and Sanders owns his lame ass attempt to put half quotes in his mouth.

An interviewer comes after Sanders with half a quote, and Sanders remembers the whole quote:
MR. COSTA: Let’s stick with that race point you just brought up. In 1974, you said that bussing policies were well meaning in theory but sometimes result in “racial hostility.”
SEN. SANDERS: What else did I say in that?
MR. COSTA: Tell me.
SEN. SANDERS: No, you got it there. Read it. Read the whole quote.
MR. COSTA: I don’t have the whole quote.
SEN. SANDERS: The whole quote is the federal government doesn’t give a sh%$ about African Americans.
MR. COSTA: Well, that is true. That’s why I didn’t include it.
SEN. SANDERS: All right. Okay.
The point that Sanders was making, and the point that he remembered from 45 years ago, was that the Federal government was refusing to enforce fair housing laws.
