Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on Sunday that a controversial essay he penned in 1972 discusses topics similar to the popular erotic novel 50 Shades of Gray.

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate told host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that his essay was “very poorly written.”

“And if you read it, what it was dealing with was gender stereotypes, why some men like to oppress women, why other women like to be submissive,” Sanders said.

    Rumor has it the essay is based on an affair
    Bernie had with his embalmer.
