Screen Shot 2016-04-16 at 9.34.43 AMAfter all the hype and publicity Sanders only got 5 minutes of the Pope’s time. That’s hilarious! Check out what happened.

U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told The Associated Press that he met briefly with Pope Francis at the papal residence Saturday. Sanders said it was a “real honor” to call on “one of the extraordinary figures” in the world.

Sanders, in Rome for a Vatican conference on economic inequality and climate change, said the meeting took place before the pope left for Greece, where Francis was highlighting the plight of refugees.

The Vermont senator, in a race with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president, said he told the pope that he appreciated the message Francis is sending the world about the need to inject morality and justice into the world economy. Sanders said that is a message he, too, has tried to convey.

“We had an opportunity to meet with him this morning,” Sanders said in an Associated Press interview. “It was a real honor for me, for my wife and I to spend some time with him. I think he is one of the extraordinary figures not only in the world today, but in modern world history.”
