What We’re Reading

That Sanders interview everyone is talking about.

Trump says Lyin’ Ted has stolen the election.

What it looks like when Trump says he’s wrong. (Favorite parts: “Besides, he noted, he gets attacked on his looks, too. “My hair is just fine, but I get attacked on my hair,” he said. “But if I attack someone else on their hair, they’d say, ‘Oh, what a terrible thing to do.’” “I can be so presidential if I want.”)

Charles Blow: “For a Democratic Party that prides itself on the grand ideals of inclusion and fairness, the nominating process is anything but.”
