Geraldo Rivera is shilling for Sanders




Old @BernieSanders made positive impression on #FoxNewsTownHall. He's ruffled & ancient, but feisty & strong in a fit old man way. He has strength w a motivated base-Has raised a ton of cash second only to @realDonaldTrump-Scared the hell out of @HillaryClinton & Won 23 primaries





As Millennial Elites fall for fresh new faces like @PeteButtigieg their crushes will cool w scrutiny & in the face of formidable fund-raising by @SenSanders Watch now as he accumulates more centrists Democrats & raises a ton of money.




He's doing this because Fox and Trump think Trump can beat Sanders.

9. All Trump has to say is Sanders and I share the same econmic polices on tariffs and treaties.

 

As Michael Moore correctly observed as soon a Sanders entered the race Hilary was DOA. She was running against a person with negotiable party loyalty spewing the same economic message as Trump. Here is a person who has reservations about membership in the Democratic Party, with the same B.S. on tariffs, NAFTA and the TPP trade agreements as her opponent running against her. The crossfire became so bad that she had to rescind her support of the TPP.

The result is that China has taken over the field unopposed throughout Asia. China has launched its own version of the TPP with its trade agreement called the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership which includes 16 countries as compared to the TPP of 12 countries that would have covered 40% of the global economy and removed 18,000, (that is not a misprint) yes, 18,000 tariffs. Since our withdrawal giving China a clear field they haven't missed the lost opportunity and in addition to the latest agreement, China has signed trade agreements with Australia, South Korea and Singapore. My bottom line is no thanks, Bernie. His years of legislative history of naming two post offices and a vet bill stand in contrast to his proposed ridiculous utopia legislative proposals that have as much chance of seeing passage as a snowball in hell says it all for me.

Whats up with that? Does that mean she is doing this because Fox and Trump think Trump can beat Pete?

than anyone else in the Dem field. I'm not a fan, but I do think he'd kick Trumps ass around the country. Add a black woman to the ticket like Harris or Abrams and he'd be unbeatable.

14. I think you may be right

 

The Trump voters are tired of business as usual,.2016 saw the rise of Sanders and Trump. They may have come to different candidates but the rejection of Jeb and Hillary was less personal and more about being not seen by either party.

The Trump voter was just more about taking their ball and going home from the Republican Party.

39. This. We all know it. Btw, Steve Bannon says he's a "populist

 

nationalist." Sounds appropriate enough as far as it goes, which isn't enough, neonazi, white supremacist, religious nihilist, but he specifically rejects adding fascist.

All populists are driven by aggressive "anti-elite" resentment, though, elites being whoever their leader defines them as. Both Trump and Sanders define the Democratic Party as elite and demonize the party to their followers.

Above all, though, populist movements take their characters from the large numbers who combine social conservatism with economic progressivism. And that's why we saw both Sanders' and Trump's populists yelling "lock her up" and other constantly, definingly antagonistic behaviors. And why Sanders shouldn't ever be drawing more than token numbers of misfit populist PoC.

He's doing this because Fox and Trump think Trump can beat Sanders.
I know so! Of course Trump can easily beat BS. That's because BS is a Socialist and an easy target. I'll bet the GOP can find (or has already found) many things in his past (ie: his writings, his words, his interviews, his rants, his speeches) and other things that are prohibited here... which would be very harmful to him.

The GOP and Fox want Bernie for such obvious reasons. They're acting like BS is the equivalent of some dreaded patch of briars... but in reality, it's what they WANT.
