91. That tweet is factual and not mean at all.

Tanden has been held to a racist and sexist double standard.

The Bernie fans and Trump fans (most of whom are white) online are well known for being some of the meanest tweeters - yet it's the middle aged brown woman who is taking the fall.

I don't see anything wrong with him addressing the tweets fishwax Mar 2021 #20

Sanders would have voted for her, because he supports Biden. Manchin would never vote for her. Autumn Mar 2021 #16
I do not know that to be true. Regardless, he started the tone. LizBeth Mar 2021 #19
Regardless, Bernie supports the Democratic agenda that Biden wants. Manchin is kneecapping him. Autumn Mar 2021 #24
Sanders was the very one that kneecapped Tanden. Manchin just kicked her while she was down. LizBeth Mar 2021 #27
So? He still said he would vote for you. You can blame Manchin, who said he wouldn't vote for her. Autumn Mar 2021 #33

You are wrong. White House sources said that Bernie said he would vote for her Autumn Mar 2021 #128
It was said after, though not by him publicly dsc Mar 2021 #130

Make up your mind. You just posted that he would have voted for her. seaglass Mar 2021 #38
Which part of Manchin said he would not vote for her, Republicans would not cross over to vote for Autumn Mar 2021 #44
He should have announced she was withdrawing her nomination and there would be no vote? Or lied? Autumn Mar 2021 #51
