Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is a good Democrat.
He says everything necessary to get the uninformed riled up.
He doesn’t need facts. Facts are irrelevant to the left.
For example, speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.
Sen. Bernie Sanders at MLK event in South Carolina: "It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist." https://t.co/NkJuIoh4fP pic.twitter.com/OQHoiTn4WA

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.“
Based on what, smart guy?
Sanders recently went after Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Cheney, of course, is the daughter of former Vice President
Christian Bale Dick Cheney.
Liz wasn’t scared, though.
She fired back guns blazing.
Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked "the fraud of socialism." Really? I wasn't aware that it was "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and got us into a horrific war that we should never have started.

Yes, @SenSanders, son of Eli Sanders, socialism is a fraud. It steals power from the people & gives it to the government, crushes human freedom & initiative & devastates economies (ask the Venezuelans). BTW – Your Dick Cheney history is as defective as your economic policy. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/8xjOVE3Tpu

From Daily Caller:
Rodolphe “Skip” Vallee, the CEO of St. Albans-based gasoline distributor and retailer R.L. Vallee, is alleging that Sanders and his senior press adviser, Daniel McLean, conspired against the business owner by drumming up a class-action lawsuit, according to federal court documents.
Vallee, who owns more than 45 gas stations in and around Vermont, produced an anti-Sanders television advertisement that aired locally in September 2014. The advertisement criticized Sanders for lambasting “the rich” over receiving tax breaks and golden parachutes, while his wife Jane Sanders received a $200,000 golden parachute after her involvement in a land deal helped to bankrupt Burlington College while she was president.
Bernie calls for the rich to fork over their cash in order to be redistributed, yet forgets he’s a member of the 1%.
He’s also big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.
The list could go on for a while.
But spending $300,000 on private flights in a single month?
Is this guy a rockstar?
From Daily Wire:
“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”
“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.
Sanders probably would’ve been the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 had the Democrat National Committee not worked their “magic” for Hillary Clinton.
Would Bernie have defeated Donald Trump?
We’ll never know.
But what about two years from now?
Does Sanders have a chance?
From Free Beacon:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said on Sunday that he is seriously considering another run for president in 2020.
Sharpton: “Twenty-twenty, everyone is talking about this candidate or that candidate. A central question is, will Bernie Sanders run again?“
Sanders: “And the answer is, Al, I will make that decision at the appropriate time. I will be honest with you, you’re a friend, you know, we’re looking at it. But it is … a decision that impacts your family. And I want to make sure that when I make that decision, if I decide to run, that I have concluded, in fact, that I am the strongest candidate who can defeat Donald Trump,” Sanders said. “And I’ve got to make that decision based on my background, based on my past, based on my ideas that, in fact, I am the candidate that can defeat Trump.“
