Reveling in the misery of others is terrible. Which is why we never do it. Except when it’s totally, one hundred percent deserved. Like when Bernie Sanders and his lovely wife, Jane, are under FBI investigation for fraud. Then we’re doing the Snoopy Happy Dance. Anytime we can redistribute jokes at their offense (see Bernie Sanders Delivers Depressingly Awful Commencement Speech and BERNIE MATH: Burlington College Forced to Close Over Jane Sanders’ Crushing Debt) is a good day in Crowderland. Especially when the Sanders’ are under FBI investigation for bank fraud. Yes I realize I typed that twice. Double the pleasure, double the fun.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys, amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.
Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.
According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.
I guess the first thing that comes to mind…
Aren't socialists, like, supposed to hate banks? https://t.co/JXH65G11xP

I guess there really are two Americas. Actually, three Americas. One where John Q. Public stuggles to get by. One where the banks and corporations get rich off of John Q. Public’s misery (according to socialists). One where hypocrites like Bernie Sanders talk out of their hindparts to John Q. Public, while cozying up to greedy banks and corporations. Why?
Hey, it beats work. Which, incidentally, Bernie didn’t earn a paycheck until he was forty. Read LOSER: It Took Bernie Sanders 40 Years to Earn a Paycheck.
So what’s the takeaway from this story other than Bernie Sanders and his wifey-poo are hypocrites of the highest order? They’re also (allegedly) thieves. Which shouldn’t be a surprise, considering their platform is built off of stealing from the rich to to give to themselves. Read Bernie Ends His Socialist Campaign by Buying Expensive Third House! He needed that third house. It makes him feel zen.
American voters should spend more time investing in and trusting themselves. Less time believing, supporting, or revering a whispy-haired socialist coot.
