Jeff Zucker's Response To Bernie Sanders As CNN President Is Perfect

CNN President Jeff Zucker is feeling the Bern.

During a Democratic presidential forum on Friday, Rachel Maddow served Bernie Sanders with a solid non-political question: What would his dream job be if he could not be a politician? 

Delighted to not be asked about his underwear, Sanders replied that he'd love to be “president of CNN.”

“If I was president of CNN, trust me, the way media deals with politics would radically change,” he said.

According to Sunday's "Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter, the clearly amused Zucker responded to Sanders' statement in the most succinct way possible: "Can he start Monday?"

Well, lucky for Bernie, it is always good to have options.
