The fighting between Hillary and Bernie kind of makes the GOP feud look small by comparison.
While the Republican front runners duke it out for the nomination, Sanders and Clinton have been trading barbs for months.
The two candidates for the Democratic nomination are by no means friends and have said some very negative things about each other.
Normally, when a party member fails to clinch the nomination, they would back their rival, to ensure they win the general election. But so much bad blood has passed between these two, it looks like Bernie ain’t playing that game.
Recently, Sanders put the nail of the coffin when he stated he wouldn’t compel his followers to vote for Clinton. And it just might be a win for Trump.
According to the Conservative Tribune:
“We’re not a movement where I can snap my fingers and say to you or to anybody else what you should do, that you should all listen to me. You shouldn’t. You make these decisions yourself,” Sanders said when asked if he would support Clinton. “And if Secretary Clinton wins, it is incumbent upon her to tell millions of people who right now do not believe in establishment politics or establishment economics, who have serious misgivings about a candidate who has received millions of dollars from Wall Street and other special interests,” he added. “She has got to go out to you.”
Despite flagging in the polls and lacking delegates, Sanders is not ready to throw in the towel.
You almost got to admire the man for sticking to his principles. He even takes a few hits at the old girl while acknowledging a possible defeat.
Of course, his policies are insane and destructive, but at least he isn’t about to neglect them to play politics.
How does this help Trump?
Without the support of Sanders, Clinton might not snatch up the millions of people who have “felt the Bern.”
After months of negative rhetoric, they will be unlikely to support the woman who stole his nomination. Being an outsider himself, Trump could be the more attractive candidate to back.
Therefore, if Trump is the nominee — something that’s looking more and more likely after the thumping he delivered Tuesday night in the so-called “Acela states” — his path to the White House is looking more and more assured.
It’ll be an exciting turn of events, regardless of the outcome.
