Sanders fumbles tribute to 60th anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma

Gaffe Track: That's Not the Selma Bernie Was Looking For

The gaffe:
Today, March 7, is the 60th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when state troopers beat civil-rights marchers coming over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. Seeking to mark the occasion, Sanders tweeted, “Bloody Sunday was about showing the entire world how far some would go to prevent African-Americans from voting,” along with a photo. As Twitter users quickly pointed out, that image, here via Politwoops, isn’t from the march—it’s from the acclaimed 2014 film Selma. Close, but no cigar!
