Sen. Bernie Sanders took part in a town hall on the TODAY Show, with hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie on NBC this morning.

As expected, the first topic that Bernie was asked about from Savannah Guthrie was the recent dust up between him and HRC.

Sanders reiterated to Guthrie that the Clinton campaign had turned nasty after losing a string of primaries.

Guthrie followed up by asking, "Did you overreact because you thought she said something more than she did?"

The Vermont Senator then replied, "Here's the truth. I've known Hillary Clinton for 25 years. I respect Hillary Clinton. We were colleagues in the Senate and on her worst day, she would be an infinitely better president than either of the Republican candidates."

Guthrie then pressed him, "She's qualified?"

And Sanders said, "Of course. But the point is, I would hope that we get away from these attacks, which by the way the media likes very much and start focusing, maybe we can do that today on the real issues that impact the America people."

Let's hope this puts an end to this back and forth so we can focus on the issues and beating the horrific Republicans.
