    1. Joe Biden only exported millions and millions of American jobs overseas in corporate trade deals like NAFTA and TPP.

    1. @Jaycee Chapman cope? im actually celebrating that Bernie will never be president. he would be too old to run in 2028 . At most he has a term and a half in the senate and we will no longer have to hear from the con artist.

    2. Joe Biden only exported millions and millions of American jobs overseas in corporate trade deals like NAFTA and TPP.

  1. Crap! He would have made an excellent labor secretary. But we can’t chance losing the senate to the party of treason.

    1. @adyn michael it doesn’t matter if dems have a slim majority. the only shot biden has of doing anything is by executive order but he wont .

    2. @adyn michael remember Obama and biden controlled the House of Representatives with 257 Democrats and controlled the senate with 59 senators so….

  2. Wise choice in keeping Bernie in the Senate. So wonderful to see a leader put thought into his decisions and explaining to the American people why he made that decision.

    3. Biden and his team, , talking about Bernie, anf how he cares for the American people, what a wonderful breath of fresh air, send Trump to Venzuela to golf for the rest of his life, enough of the orange clown..

    1. @jeck jeck Scott has said that he would fill Sanders’ seat with an independent who would caucus with the Democrats, as Sanders does.

    2. @jeck jeck Scott will be responsible for calling a special election within six months of the vacancy. The appointee will then serve in that role until the end of the previous senator’s term or the next general election.

    1. I have mixed feelings about it. For one thing, we’re presuming that a Republican could take Bernie’s seat in Vermont… which I don’t think is very likely at all.

    2. @Tessmage Tessera I believe the governor can appoint someone to fill a seat vacated in Congress. And our Governor is a Republican, though he is very sane and not part of the Trump cult.

    3. @Sheila McGregor Yeah but he has to appoint someone from the same party… which makes it even more complicated, because Bernie doesn’t belong to either party.

    4. @Tessmage Tessera
      On the bright side, Kentucky governor is a democrat, if Satan comes for his friend Mitch, replacement should be a democrat.

    1. Like a garbage phoenix, you shall rise from the gutter you call bed.

    2. @Hannah – I m live with cam ᑕᕼEᑕK ᗰY ᑭᖇOᖴIᒪE
      Edgy:/ Continue lording over those edges.

  3. I believe Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders made the right decision. I would’ve loved Bernie as the labor secretary but the Senate is at risk.

  4. I’m so happy Bernie is going to be much more involved. That makes me feel better…love Bernie.

  5. After 4 years of Trump I almost forgot what a logical thinking POTUS should sound like…Thx 46

    1. my brain is trying to comprehend normal and intelligent sentences again with vocabulary that isn’t only from the 2nd grade.

  6. Bravo Bernie the only politician who has zero ego problems, putting the peoples agenda before his career options.

    1. me too. aoc and ilan omar too. Seem legit and care about the ppl and for the rep kinzinger, hes seems legit too. Dont care for party lines only the ppl behind them.

    2. @Mike Byers Katie porter too, and the two new Georgian congressmen. There are quite a few dems who really care about America and Americans.
