As Bernies Eyes 2020, Previous Campaign’s Demons Appear on Horizon

Bernie Sanders may live on the far left, but the ideals of his male campaign staff are straight out of the show “Mad Men”.

Elizabeth Warren has come out of the gate swinging, announcing the formation of her presidential exploratory committee before anyone else on the left had a chance to blink.

The speculation over who will end up competing for the nomination is still fairly wide open, but a few names other than Warren’s seem likely to appear in headlines soon:  Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Beto O’Rourke, believe it or not.

Sanders, whose bizarre exit from the 2016 primaries has been widely lambasted by the progressive left as a bit of “home cooking” by the Hillary camp, will likely lead the way for the far left to infiltrate the main stream of the DNC.

The only problem with that are the skeletons still hiding in Bernie’s closet from his last go-round.

A group of former Bernie Sanders staffers are demanding a meeting with the Vermont senator and his “top political advisers” to discuss rampant “sexual violence” they say took place on the Sanders 2016 presidential campaign.

Politico reports that in recent weeks, staffers from Sanders’ former campaign have been comparing experiences, and after a group discussion, drafted a letter to Sanders and several of his top 2016 advisers requesting time to “discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the purpose of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle.”

The sentiment grew bolder as more statements became available.

“In recent weeks there has been an ongoing conversation on social media, in texts, and in person, about the untenable and dangerous dynamic that developed during our campaign,” the group wrote, adding that while similar issues arise on many campaigns, discrimination and harassment on Sanders’ campaign was particularly problematic given Sanders’ progressive platform and the “intense commitment” offered to his presidential effort from “women, people of color, and LGBT staffers.”

With Bernie likely the furthest left that the democratic party is willing to go, these accusations will need to be addressed, quite publicly, and with a swiftness that the democrats have seldom displayed in the past.

Biden Condemns Trump for Using the Word ‘Lynching,’ But Said the Same Thing In 1998

Ain’t that something?

Democrats can literally quote themselves from decades past and then argue they didn’t say what they said. Doesn’t even matter if their words are on record. If that sounds funny to you, it’s because it is. They are ridiculous. President Trump for example, if he wanted to, could pull a word-for-word sentence from Joe Biden’s past, blast Biden for using it, then Biden would claim he never said it. That’s how Democrats operate. It’s just lie after lie. On Tuesday, Trump used the word “lynching” to describe how he’s being treated by Congressional liberals. Naturally, the left blew a gasket. Biden, himself, wasn’t pleased with 45’s words. But Biden is pretty much a comedian at this point. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was quick to attack President Donald Trump on Tuesday after Trump referred to impeachment as a “lynching,” which is the same term that Biden used in 1998 to describe the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton. “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186691273870233601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F1998-remarks-from-biden-surface-after-he-attacks-trumps-lynching-remarks WATCH: While Biden has called Trump’s lynching…
