If Bernie Sanders, the socialist’s socialist and extreme liberal, can’t even stand your lies anymore, then you know you’re not doing something right as a news channel.
From Conservative Tribune:
While being interviewed during a session with journalist Jake Tapper at the South by Southwest festival in Texas, the aging leftist called out the mainstream media for obsessing over largely irrelevant stories and tabloid controversies.
“Let me bring something up,” Tapper said, trying to steer the conversation after the interview was underway.
“Stormy Daniels,” Sanders jumped in.
Jake Tapper seemed surprised that Bernie brought up the adult film star who has claimed that she received “hush money” from Donald Trump over an alleged affair from over a decade ago.
Breaking news updates and daily headlines from a news source you can trust.
“You keep bringing her name up,” Tapper prompted, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Not as much as CNN does,” Bernie hit back.
Sanders then scolded CNN for its seemingly constant coverage of the Stormy Daniels “scandal,” when there were far more important issues facing the country.
“In this country, we have a lot of people who are in pain — single mothers, people who can’t afford college — they want to see something that reflects their reality,” Sanders declared.
The Vermont senator and former presidential candidate made it clear that he was no fan of Donald Trump, but pointed out that constantly pretending that Trump supporters were unhinged, racist radicals wasn’t doing the left any favors.
“Our job is to talk to people respectfully,” Sanders lectured CNN. “Not most (Trump supporters) are racist, sexist or xenophobes. They are hurting and want change — change to the middle class and not the 1 percent,” he pointed out. “Everyone in this room has to participate.”
This may be a once-in-a-lifetime moment, so brace yourself: Bernie Sanders is right.
