As conservative election observers expected all along, Sen. Bernie Sanders finally sold out to Hillary Clinton and endorsed her for president on Tuesday.
“She will be the Democratic nominee for president,” Sanders said. “I intend to do everything I can to make sure she is the next president of the United States.”
Sanders had built his entire campaign on an appeal to stand up for the little guy against Washington corruption and the wealthy.
It was naive, but thrilling and immensely appealing to young people who didn’t want to have to pay back student loans … or work particularly hard to get all the material goods they wanted in life.
Sanders, who gained points for honesty by being the only openly Socialist candidate on the Democratic Party ticket, basically proved his entire campaign was a lie by endorsing Clinton, who is the epitome of corrupt insider politics that is driven by elite corporate interests.
Many of his supporters who had foolishly believed his campaign rhetoric were crushed on Tuesday.
Twitter user Special Shrub tweeted, “Bernie endorsed Hillary and people are crying and leaving the rally.”
Christopher Woods tweeted, “How can Bernie rant against corporate America, money in politics, and the rest and then endorse Hillary? Fraud.”
The Sanders endorsement means Clinton had to agree to many of his campaign promises, and she will no doubt be veering even further left to try to keep Sanders’ Socialist-duped legions that bought into his calls for a “revolution” in American politics.
“We’re going to make college debt-free for all, and help millions of people struggling with existing student debt save thousands of dollars,” Clinton said, without being struck by lightning.
She added, “Wages are just too low for most Americans to get ahead. We need to go big.”
How about a minimum $100 per hour? Then we can all be rich.
That’s how it works, right?
The scariest thing about all this is that Clinton still has a chance to win, thanks to that flagrant display of political corruption when the FBI director gave Clinton a pass on indictment for what should have been criminal negligence (if not outright espionage) charges.
So now in liberals’ blind lust for power, the Socialist banner, the often-failed but still kicking legacy of Karl Marx, the politics of envy, has now been entrusted to the Democrats’ leading sociopath, a true wolf in cheap clothing, a Benedict Arnold in waiting, with her militant street army hiding behind the shielding cry of “racism.”
Oh, yeah, this is going to be good. …
