    His right eye makes him look like the professor from hairy potter.

  4. Bernie2020. He will save our constitution from President Satan.

  5. Look at how Covid19 has effected the stock market. Think of what We the People could accomplish with country-wide strikes and millions storming Washington. We the People are the only ones who can pull us out of the abyss. Otherwise adjust your chokechains accordingly.

    • The fundamentals really weren’t as good as people have been made to think they were. The billionaires and corporations that got the huge tax cuts used them for stock buybacks and artificially inflated their stock prices and markets. That’s a bubble and bubbles burst causing markets to crash. Also Goldman Sachs (Mnuchin) have been pumping billions of dollars into markets out of the Treasury trying to put off any correction or crash until after the election.. Thank Bernanke for the mechanisms for this sort of theft from the taxpayers. They’ll blame covid-19 or Bernie or both but it’s the same old establishment shell games. Maybe covid-19 triggers it but the bust has been on the horizon for a while now.

    • @SteelFisher look how the feds repo Market coincides with the S&P 500


    • john john
      Just see what people with moral values say about trumpo the deplorable and disgusting orange clown. Tony S. author of the dumbest book in history-listen to his regrets.

    • He has zero chance unless everyone moderate but him drops out of the race before Super Tuesday, I predict most will stay in till Bernie has won 20 or more states. Bernie in the general election he can continue to attach those big people of the oligarchy, but most of all you have to specifically attack Trump’s dozens of real problems personally, with corruption, and policies, and keep asking the question, can’t we do better than this. Put your policies in the Democratic platform and assume those enthusiastic about them already know everything about them and are going to vote for you, end the long spiel when they are attacked and pivot to Trumps failings on that specific programs, there is plenty you can say about Republicans and healthcare and it will solidify voters than doing the health policy pitch for the 100th time. You will have plenty of time and money to pitch your plan once you are President.

    • I created MSNBC.com


      Bolshevik Bernie has said that he does not support reparations for black people, but said he did for Jews, and then flip flopped and said he would merely approve it if it came across his desk.



      Bernie once compared poor white workers in Vermont to blacks under slavery and Apartheid. The Daily Beast, Daily Kos, The Root and others have reported on this.

    • bloomberg won the debate tonight

    Sitting and writing this comment in Germany, I can tell you all of Germany loves Bernie, and all of Europe loves Bernie.

  8. The 1% are afraid of Bernie’s plan for them, they even have their liberal news puppets crying! Don’t worry your orange puppet drumpf, will end all before the election.

  9. Dems are going to shoot themselves in the foot again if they try to obstruct Bernie.

  10. this guy IS NOT BERNIE. get on with it Ari!

  11. We got Bernie don’t worry yourself. He’s the only candidate that we the people are going to vote for.

  12. I thought a “guru” was green skinned and had 11 legs….

    I see MSDNC is still actively trying to derail Bernie Sanders.😂😂😂

  14. Feel the Bernie Bern unlike with the other lukewarm candidates!
