"I want to ask you, as a closing question, about something that is admittedly rather frivolous," said CNN anchor Jake Tapper in a recent interview. "I want to ask you about this bizarre sighting at Paris Fashion Week from Balenciaga. Take a look: these are a number of people, models on the runway in Bernie clothes. Did you ever think that you would become a fashion icon?"
With a chuckle, Bernie responded saying, "Of my many attributes, being a great dresser or a fashion maven is not one of them," to which Tapper responded with, "Apparently there's a designer out there who begs to differ."
