(NEWSER) – Bernie Sanders might have been taking shots at Hillary Clinton during Sunday's debate, but he sat down for a decidedly lighter interview with Time, and dropped this little gem: "I do not own a tuxedo. Never have I worn a tuxedo."
Nonetheless, the senator from Vermont says he could handle the ceremonial duties associated with the presidency. "These issues are not new to me," he says. "I presided over a city for eight years, the House for 16, and the Senate for nine, so I think I can handle all the ex officio duties that come with being President of the United States ."
More not-so-serious revelations from the interview:
- On pardoning turkeys: "I like turkey very much, so I’d eat the turkey." But, "I'm not against pardoning turkeys."
