So Presidential ……….
If somehow Bernie managed to become the Democratic nominee, this is where the Republican media and Trump would slaughter him.
From his past on Cuba, Ortega to the present of taxing the rich to pay for the poor.
If Bernie had actual facts, plans, details of how to implement what he gives long speeches on, it would be different.
But he doesn’t.
Just an old sound bite machine.
‘The Democrats’ socialist candidate for President of the United States, Bernie Sanders, was seriously tripped up this week in an interview with Univision’s León Krauze’.
‘When asked to explain the failure of socialist governments in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, Sanders completely clammed up, saying he has an opinion on the subject, but was unwilling to share it, as he is “focused on my campaign.”
LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: “I am sure that you know about this topic: various leftist governments, especially the populists, are in serious trouble in Latin America. The socialist model in Venezuela has the country near collapse. Argentina, also Brazil, how do you explain that failure”?
BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: “You are asking me questions…”
LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: “I am sure you’re interested in that”.
BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: “I am very interested, but right now I’m running for President of the United States”.
LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: “So you don’t have an opinion about the crisis in Venezuela”?
BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: “Of course I have an opinion, but as I said, I’m focused on my campaign”.
‘There you have it folks’.
‘Bernie Sanders is too busy selling socialism in the United States to discuss the catastrophic effects of socialism in major neighboring countries in the region like Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina. How…convenient’.
‘That’s not what his history of statements in favor of Castro in Cuba, Ortega in Nicaragua, or any of his other past endorsements of socialist governments in Latin America indicate’.
Bernie raised a HUGE stink over this.
He lost an election so of course ‘it was rigged’ against him.
‘The Sanders requested recanvass of the Kentucky primary results has been completed, and Hillary Clinton remains the winner of the Kentucky primary’.
‘WKYT in Lexington, KY reported’:
“A recanvass of the votes in Kentucky’s Democratic presidential primary started at 9 a.m. Thursday. At 1:00 p.m., Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes said the recanvass resulted in no change in the election outcome”.
“Grimes’ office said county boards of elections rechecked and recanvassed the voting machines, per Kentucky law”.
“Daniel Lowry, Director of Communications for the Kentucky Democratic Party, says Clinton picked up 28 pledged delegates and Sanders gained 27 delegates from the Kentucky primary”.
“Fayette County election officials finished the recanvass in Lexington in 20 minutes and they didn’t find anything wrong”.
Imagine living in a World where the President of the United States – on a daily basis – repeats debunked conspiracy theories?
Welcome to Donald Trumps America…………
Sheila Foster Anthony:
“It is beyond contempt that a politician would use a family tragedy to further his candidacy, but such is the character of Donald Trump displayed in his recent comments to The Washington Post. In this interview, Trump cynically, crassly and recklessly insinuated that my brother, Vincent W. Foster Jr., may have been murdered because ‘he had intimate knowledge of what was going on’ and that Hillary Clinton may have somehow played a role in Vince’s death.”
“How wrong. How irresponsible. How cruel.”
