In an interview set to air Thursday on SiriusXM’s “Make It Plain With Mark Thomson”, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says he’s not ruling out the possibility of a presidential run in 2020, though it’s still far too early to talk about.
“I’m not taking it off the table,” said Sanders. “Our job right now is to not only fight against this disastrous health care proposal, it is to take on all of [President Donald] Trump’s reactionary proposals.”
Then he went on to ramble about raising the minimum wage and making public colleges tuition-free – we heard it already, Bernie. All we need to do is engage in this hypothetical revolution of yours, where young people across the country are supposed to take time off from their video games, Snapchat, Instagram and texting to clamour to the polling booths to vote in every election, big and small, to ensure a democratic majority. Then we’ll be able to make it all free…health care, college, artisanal beer, the pot, bitchin’ tattoos…
At least we’re out of the TPP now right? God what a horse’s ass.
Bernie, give it up. You helped to screw this country with your personal attacks on Hillary Clinton during the campaign. You created the ‘Shillary’ beholden to Wall Street narrative…literally handed it over to the GOP. You hammered her over TPP – something she was for, but pressured into rejecting. Well your pal Trump wasn’t a fan of it either – now without it, we’ve got no leverage with Asia…good going. You lost the primary, fair and square…but according to you it was some DNC conspiracy. A complete myth you never dispelled. You kept it going right to the convention, fomenting dissent in the party. I hate to break it to you, but your ardent disciples followed you more out of vogue than anything else. You were the trucker hat of 2016.
If you still don’t get what I’m saying, it’s pretty simple – go away.
You’ve done your damage. You were instrumental in Clinton’s loss…good job – go away. You are a craven, power drunk, delusional alter kocker and you take no account for your role in Trump’s election. And it was a major one. Hillary Clinton lost those crucial battleground states in large part to lack of turnout from young voters (18-29). Your people Bernie. Fine – it doesn’t matter…just go away. Because guess what? Like the trucker hat, people now regard you with a sense of weariness…you’re part of our existential malaise, the green-grey fog of regret. The Democrats need new blood…you don’t fit the bill. You made yourself out to be the victim of a conspiracy – we don’t need victims… we need winners. We need team players. We don’t need you.
