Yeah, damn, he did get them all. I wonder who is working in the shadows to protect his life? Otherwise it seems like he'll get Epsteined for sure and I'm sure he knows that. There's a little concern in the back of my mind that this sounds too good to be true and there's an endgame move that is helpful to Trump that I didn't see coming.

Yeah, I don't like it at all. She should have shaken his hand and made contact in private. And BTW, private conversations like that, whether she is accurate or not in her portrayal of Bernie's words, should be kept private, especially if you are supposed to be friends.

Also BTW, is it any surprise that CNN had a hot mic handy for their exchange? Hmmm...

I did the candidate poll expecting junk results and that's what I got. 20 broad questions with very narrow response options doesn't get the job done for me.

Warren Steyer Bloomberg
Buttigieg Klobuchar Biden
Sanders Yang Gabbard

I consider Sanders my favorite and Warren second. This poll put Warren on top but there's no way in hell I agree with Steyer Bloomberg Buttigieg Klobuchar Biden more readily than Sanders. It did correctly put Gabbard last though.

Yep I couldn't believe it. She obviously instigated it to try to make Bernie look bad. Last thing the Dems need is this sort of bad blood that hurts unity when it counts.

Voters have very short memories. Bad optics now, forgotten after the convention. Bernie Bros are the only potential issue if they donít get any n board.

If Sanders isn't the nominee they're going to be an issue regardless. They've been telling everyone in the world for the past 5+ years everyone not named Bernie Sanders is a horrible monster that eats puppies and hates humanity. There's no graceful walking back from that. That hardcore sliver of his base will either stay home or vote third party.

The good news is, contrary to their outsized footprint online, there's actually not that many of them and most of Bernie's base is actually fairly sane/normal and will happily support whoever the nominee is.

Default Treating "Bernie Bros" thing as reality, just shows you're susceptible to propaganda

+ YouTube Video

Here's Obama getting the same treatment in 2008 from the HRC folks. They tried the same shit back then. Only they were called "Obama boys" which is somehow both sexist and racist at the same time given the fact that "boy" is how many black men are denigrated by southern racists to this day.

Don't believe the propaganda. Look at the actual demographics of Sanders supporters before believing what parties with a conflict of interest want you to believe.

I don't remember Obama boys, and I was pretty fanatical.

I’d comment, but I have an energy efficient dishwasher and I’ve only run it 8 times. Still 2 more cycles to go.
