Now Mitt Romney is attacking Bernie Sanders

After a week of battling Donald Trump, Mitt goes on Jimmy Kimmel and bashes "misguided" Sanders

Published March 9, 2016 12:45PM (EST)

Following a whirlwind couple of weeks in Donald Trump's crosshairs, "failed candidate" Mitt Romney guested on "The Jimmy Kimmel Show" to further spread his anti-Trump message.

Asked his thoughts on the tightening delegate battle between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side, Romney called Sanders "an authentic guy, an honest guy," but "incredibly misguided."

"What Bernie Sanders knows is simply wrong," Romney continued. "He's not gonna help people come out of poverty, he's not gonna build a strong middle class with policies that have been a failure around the world."

Kimmel tried to coax an endorsement of Bernie -- who Romney called "follicly challenged" -- over Trump, but Romney stayed clear of any controversial statements to that end.
