Bernie Sanders made more than $1 million in 2017, making it the second year in a row that the senator has earned a seven-figure income.
The popular independent lawmaker from Vermont has done well for himself since conceding to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.
In 2016, Sanders became a millionaire for the first time largely due to royalties from his book
. The book, which shares his personal experiences on the campaign trail and outlines a progressive policy agenda, quickly became a
New York Times
best-seller and involved a 19-stop book tour across the country.
the senator also penned a young adult book titled
Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution,
which urged his young voters to participate in progressive political movements.
Oh look, a guy who hates the rich writing books about hating the rich and getting filthy rich in the process.
It's amusing how Bernard has no problem with profits when they're going into his wallet. Though, if you and I pull in a tidy sum from our writings, we're greedy bastards. The Bern could have chosen to pen his books for free. Though, in his defense, those
multiple domiciles aren't going to pay for themselves
Chalk it up as yet another example of leftist hypocrisy. Bernie sees no inconsistency in
lecturing us on the evils of money one minute
, then counting his fat stacks the next. I wonder if he'll be donating his seven-figure income to the IRS. Not likely.
