Is it just us, or is Bernie Sanders having a bad month?
Just a few weeks back, Sanders had to do the UNTHINKABLE and claim his status as a MILLIONAIRE.
That’s right – in the very tax bracket he loves to trash-talk so much.
And since he released his tax history – there’s no hiding from it, or the anti-rhetoric he’s been touting about for years.
According to the Daily Wire, the 2020 hopeful previously described millionaire senators as being “immoral” during his first campaign for office in 1971…
The question is, now that he’s a millionaire himself, does he plan to flip the script?
As reported by CNN reporters, Sanders “harshly criticized the wealth of US senators” and called it “immoral that half the members of the Senate were millionaires.”
Once CNN dropped opened up that time capsule, Sanders campaign responded by noting that “Sanders believes elected officials should represent the interests of working people, not corporations, special interests or the ultra-wealthy.”
Ok, ok… but what about HIS wealth?!
The Sanders campaign also stated, "This view has guided his work in politics, not the pursuit of personal wealth… Sanders' family has been fortunate, and he is grateful for that because he knows the stress of economic insecurity. That is why he works every day to ensure every American has the basic necessities of life, including a livable wage, decent housing, health care and retirement security."
But again, how can Sanders push such a rhetoric when he doesn’t follow the very rhetoric he advocates… He’s not only a MILLIONAIRE… he’s got THREE homes.
The Vermont Senator doesn’t only get uncomfortable when confronted about his own “immoral” wealth he gets down-right nasty.
According to the report, during a Fox News town hall two weeks ago, Sanders explode when asked about “accepting tax breaks that he voted against and why he did not send the money back given the fact that he constantly is claiming that the wealthy need to pay more in taxes.”
Sanders pathetic response? “Pffft… come on… I am, I paid the taxes that I owe… why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes.”
The White House hopeful isn’t “immoral” because he’s wealthy, he’s “immoral” because he’s a hypocrite.
