ThinkProgress Catches Hypocrite Bernie Sanders Railing Against 'Millionaires and Billionaires'
Time to cull the Democrat presidential contender list. ThinkProgress, a leftist outlet, just released this video montage of Bernie Sanders railing against "millionaires and billionaires" noting after Sanders successful book, he dropped the "millionaires" part. Since he suddenly became a millionaire. Check it out:
Throughout his long political career, Sen. Bernie Sanders has condemned the vast influence that the richest Americans have in the U.S. political system. Now, after reaping in royalties from book sales, Sanders has become a millionaire. How has his rhetoric changed since his financial success?
The dislike ratio on this video is gold, by the way. It's almost like Bernie Sanders fans are upset their hero is a hypocritical toilet plunger. Read also: Dear ‘Men’ Who Vote Bernie Sanders: You’re not Men at All.
More importantly, Bernie becoming a millionaire through his own merits proves he's wrong about the evil of millionaires and billionaires, no? He published a book, made money from that book, and is still the same guy with that money. A few million bucks doesn't transform a wispy-haired loon into a fairytale prince after all. Nor did the infusion of cash turn him into Voldemort. He stayed the same, hypocritical diaper model he was before.
Except it'll be harder to sell himself as a socialist hero of the people after banking so successfully from a capitalist system, of which he's been a vocal critic. Couldn't happen to a nicer commie.
