Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., while still calling Donald Trump a "pathological liar," took time out to praise the president-elect during a CNN town hall meeting.

"Donald Trump did something extraordinary — something that nobody, but nobody, thought he could do," said Sanders, who lost in his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton.

"Trump took on the Republican establishment, took on the Democratic establishment, took on the media establishment and he ended up winning the election to become President of the United States."

"That is an extraordinary accomplishment. And it talks about perseverance. It talks about very strong political instincts. It talks about a way to connect with people. So I give Donald Trump his due."

But those were the only kind words he had for the president-elect.

"I am not the only person to say this," he said. "There are Republicans who say this. We are dealing with a man who in many respects…is a pathological liar."

And he added: "He ran a campaign, whose cornerstone was bigotry. It was based on sexism, on racism, on xenophobia, and on that issue, I will not compromise."

On Trump's Cabinet nominees, Sanders added: "All that I am doing here is trying to be polite. Before I vote against them, I want to hear what they're going to say."
