Everyone knew that Bernie Sanders was a fake revolutionary when he meekly bowed to Queen Hillary.
Apparently that wasn’t the only thing that he was faking.
Sanders make a shock announcement today that left everyone stunned, especially Hillary Clinton. Ironically, it prove recently dethroned DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz was right about him all along.
Heat Street as the story…
The nomination was barely sealed up at the Democratic National Convention before Bernie Sanders, who had campaigned against Hillary Clinton for the party’s nod, went back to being an Independent.
Sanders, who considers himself, officially, an Independent in Congress because his views lean further left than the Democratic party’s platform, caucuses with Democrats. But until declaring an intention to run for the presidency in 2015, he had rarely, if ever, identified as a member of the Democratic Party (he’s been in politics since 1979).
And now, despite pleading with his base to support Hillary, even though their concerned that she’s too moderate, Sanders will return to Vermont and to his seat in the Senate, and he’ll do it with no official party affiliation.
Bernie Sanders tells @bpolitics breakfast w/reporters he’ll return to the Senate as an Independent, not a Dem: ‘I was elected as an Ind.’
