In a surprising interview, socialist former presidential contender Bernie Sanders unleashed on some likely, and unlikely, targets.
It is well known at this point that the Democrat nomination was stolen by an out of touch party elite.
Many people, including Sanders himself, believe that he would have easily cruised to the White House if the Democrats hadn’t sabotaged his campaign in order to push Hillary’s carcass across the line.
Apparently there is more truth to this than many on the right might want to admit, as Sanders showed during a recent interview.
His statements, during a segment on “Charlie Rose,” were captured by Breitbart…
“Sanders stated of President-elect Donald Trump’s election that the media and establishment don’t understand there are ‘tens of millions of people who are not racists, who are not sexist, they’re hurting,'” the news outlet said.
Could that be Sanders offering up an explanation of why Trump won the White House – without putting it in a context that frames the president-elect in a negative light?
Why yes, it really could be.
Sanders actually said he wasn’t shocked Trump won the race, because the president-elect was basically able to tap into something the media and establishment forces in politics don’t get: that Americans are truly hurting.
Watch out, Sanders. That almost sounds like a compliment to the conservative, not to mention dig at the Democrats.
“You know what concerns me very much, we have a lot of Democrats who spend much of their life … out raising money from wealthy people,” Sanders said, Breitbart reported. “You can’t just spend your entire life raising money from the wealthy people.”
Listen up, lefties. One of your own from the far-far-left is giving a lesson.
“What Trump was doing, to his credit,” Sanders went on, Breitbart reported, “he was going out, holding rallies. He was going all over this country. He was going in rural areas, where candidates previously did not go. In many ways, I did that myself.”
Perhaps that’s why Trump said on several campaign occasions that he’d rather run against Clinton than Sanders.
