HYPOCRITE! Bernie Sanders Spent $300,000 On Private Jets - In One Month Alone
Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is, himself, the definition of hypocrisy.
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.
Jones said Sanders used private jets “to allow the senator to campaign in all of the states where candidates wanted his help and get back to Vermont in order to join the Vermont Democratic Party coordinated campaign’s final GOTV efforts. As Bernie often said while encouraging voters to get involved leading up to Election Day, this was the most important midterm election in our lifetimes and he wanted to have maximum impact.”
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.
MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” host Al Sharpton asked the 77-year-old senator if he was going to run again after losing out on the Democratic nomination in 2016.
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.“
Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke (TX) lost his bid to become senator to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz.
Most reasonable people saw it coming long before the results were official on election day.
Beto said he wouldn’t run for president in 2020.
Now, he’s not so sure.
From Free Beacon:
Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D., Texas) shifted in his response to the oft-asked question about whether he will mount a campaign for president in 2020, saying Friday he hadn’t made a decision after previously stating he wouldn’t run.
Hillary Clinton has already tried to be president twice.
Both times she was rejected, once by her own party.
Top aides say Hillary may again run for the White House in 2020, despite not being able to walk down a short set of stairs by herself.
Who could forget Hillary tripping downstairs while overseas?
What about her epic coughing fits out of thin air?
How about when Clinton needed help up the stairs at Aretha Franklin’s funeral?
Retiring RINO Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) is considering a 2020 primary challenge against President Trump.
Flake: “I’ve not ruled it out. I’ve not ruled it in. Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side.”
Flake: “I hope somebody does [run], just to remind Republicans what it means to be conservative and what it means to be decent. We’ve got to bring that back. You can whip up the base for a cycle or two but it wears thin. Anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”
Trump: “I retired Jeff Flake. I’m very proud of it. I did the country a great service”
