Go get him, fat man. We’re behind you!
Campaign rhetoric from 2016 came back to haunt Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders this week during a run-in with Info Wars’ Alex Jones in Los Angeles International Airport.
One of America’s most famous socialists looked stunned and confused on Monday as the face of Info Wars interrogated him on past comments about poor white people. A perturbed aide to the lawmaker unsuccessfully attempted to run interference during the spectacle, which was broadcast on YouTube later in the day.
“Well if it isn’t old Bernie Sanders,” Mr. Jones said before the aide interjected, “Dude, no. Come on. Not right now.”
“Why did you say white people didn’t know what it was like to be poor?” Mr. Jones asked as the senator scurried away. “Bernie. Where you running, bro? … You run from proletariat like that when you’re a ruling class Commie? Huh?”
Mr. Sanders made headlines in March 2016’s CNN Democratic debate when he told voters that white people were oblivious to the realities of poverty.
“When you’re white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto,” the independent senator said. “You don’t know what it’s like to be poor. You don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car.”
Foolish Bernie deserves a bit of harassment for his comments about white people. Alex is a master of the big mouth, making him perfect for this assignment.
