The View Triggered After Bernie Sanders Takes Lead [View all]

My gawd, you'd think Whoopi just escaped from the USSR. Does she REALLY want Sanders to start his own third party and run?

I think these privileged high paid hosts are rapidly distancing themselves from their initial audience. I think there is this unfounded fear in the circle of privileged entertainment stars, that Sanders is BAD for the Democrats chances. Maybe they should look at the polls from Democrats themselves and respect their preferences. Here's a thought: maybe a lot of Democrats actually WANT Sanders to run and win, as a Democrat. Sanders beats Trump in polls. No logic in their paranoia. Could it be they are enjoying Trump's tax cuts to the wealthy? and know who is going to take those away?
If I were to vote in a presidential

A. Bernie hasn't taken the lead. B. "Triggered" is right-wing framing and title of DJTJr's book scheming daemons Jan 2020 #9

At what point does Amy Klobuchar LeftTurn3623 Jan 2020 #18
She has far experience than the 37 year old mayor, and she graduated Magna cum Laude pnwmom Jan 2020 #22
She is polling lower than LeftTurn3623 Jan 2020 #29
The only polls that will matter are the primaries. n/t pnwmom Jan 2020 #32
Amy squirecam Jan 2020 #46
maybe VP but she has way less of a chance to be LeftTurn3623 Jan 2020 #67
when/if she drops out, most of her supporter will move to Biden, not Buttigieg. scheming daemons Jan 2020 #26
Isn't that funny you know what LeftTurn3623 Jan 2020 #31
That's why I said "most" scheming daemons Jan 2020 #34
