4. Please stay home Bernie! I am not a Russian a Trump or a

Bernie supporter. All he will do is turn undecided voters away. I hope I can say that since he only calls himself a Democrat when he is running for president.

But that wasn’t the point people were making on Twitter....well, some comments were partially making that point with a dig at Biden and the democrats added on

7. We're doing all right without Bernie injecting "socialism" into the campaign.

No need to give repugs that talking point. We're ahead. Let's keep doing what we're doing.

15. The socialism ship has sailed.

On 85 in Virginia (or maybe NC at that point) there's a huge billboard of Trump and Biden side-by-side with Biden against a Communist flag with the caption "Socialism." If I recall under Trump it said "Patriot." DU's whipping boy Bernie had nothing to do with it.

All before Sanders became a household name.

gone for Biden now. I think it's different than 2016

19. The overwhelming majority of Bernie supporters voted for Clinton in 2016.

I expect an equal or greater percentage of them will vote for Biden in 2020.

28. A few on there

still won't get over the primaries, like the people in r/WayOfTheBern and from the sub that was once known as "Chapo Trap House". Thankfully it looks like a smaller number of them than 4 years ago, and what happens on the Internet doesn't necessarily reflect the outside world.

12. Was there some incident that caused it to trend?

If Bernie stays home, he will be condemned for not rallying his supporters around Biden. He endorsed Biden in April, and for the most part he has been staying on message. The idea that he would somehow do more harm than good by campaigning for Biden just seems, well, goofy.

It’s one thing if Biden has privately asked Bernie to “stay home,” but I’d be damned curious about how such a message is suddenly trending when we are hoping for an all hands on deck blue tidal wave In November.

he may give ammunition to Trump. I do see your point about his supporters. Their votes are important, if we can get them.

34. the concern is not his followers

It's the persuadable voters. Why do you think Trump and Pence keep trying to tether left-leaning ideas to Biden? If enough voters believe him, they won't vote for Biden.

How is that possible?

Does anyone here know? Do you get the emails, does Bernie mention Joe and that you should vote for him by name?

"Can you split a $10 contribution between xx, yy, and Bernie Sanders' work traveling the country to defeat Trump."

29. This is just someone or a group of someones stirring the pot

Trump and his enablers have tried unsuccessfully to pin the socialist/commie tag on Biden and Harris. I'd wage money this hashtag is to remind the electorate on twitter that Bernie's still out there. Along with The Squad, Bernie will influence the Biden Administration in those "evil and wicked ways' socialists and commies do.

It's just the latest spin on Red baiting. Because that's all they've got!

Fortunately, the McCarthyism schtick doesn't carry the hefty punch it once did. Too bad for the Trumpers. Tagging Joe Biden and Kamala Harris (who Trump said is more liberal than Sanders) is laughable. They're really trying like mad to turn Harris into a Trojan horse, insinuating that Biden will be dead after a month in office.

More nuts at the nut factory.
