It has become something of a tradition over here at SmallGovReport during the GOP debates to shine a light on the Twitter account of everyone’s favorite curmudgeon, Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders.
In case you didn’t know, Bernie is running for President Of The United States. And if you thought Donald Trump has said some crazy things, you obviously haven’t met Bernie.
For example, Bernie once supported a 100% tax on all income over $1 million. His reason? No one “deserves” to make that much.
Really wacky stuff.
But of course that hasn’t stopped uninformed millennials from flocking to him in droves because you know, Citizens United and stuff.
Here is what he had to say on Twitter tonight during the GOP debate.
You mean the hundreds of thousands of veterans that died waiting for care at the VA under President Obama’s watch? Those men and women? And now you want to make government BIGGER?
Ah, calling Republicans racist. That’s a new one. Ask Kay Hagan and the Democrats how that worked during the the last midterm election.
Making college affordable? Bernie, this isn’t a student body president election at Bayside High. There are more important things to worry about like I dunno, radical Islam?
Yeah Bernie. Your top 3 priorities are climate change, Citizens United, and free college tuition and it’s the Republicans who are out of touch? Also, unlike the Democrats, the GOP field actually has a robust group of candidates who are vying to be president so they don’t have 45 minutes to spend on global warming hysteria like the Democrats do. If there were nine competent Democrats running for president, maybe you would have to spend time talking about ISIS too.
I don’t know what I enjoy more, watching this supremely qualified GOP field battle it out or watching Bernie lose his mind while it happens.
Until next time…
