There was a time a few months back where many Americans thought that Bernie Sanders was a different type of politician. A person of higher moral fabric…with a sense of integrity, sorely missing in US politics.
It was “Bernie of Bust” for many. A mantra that captured a country’s desire to break free of the corruption that plagues its political system, from top to bottom.
Forget about all of that. Bernie Sanders will kiss the ring of the most corrupt, scandal infested politician ever to run for the office of US President.
Maybe Bernie is being pragmatic. Maybe he is willing to do anything to stop Donald Trump from having a chance at winning the elections. Or maybe, just maybe, Bernie cut a deal…and like so many other people and institutions that come in contact with a Clinton, he too got infected with the corruption virus.
A true man of integrity would never endorse Hillary, no matter what party lines dictate. A man who supposedly stands up for the 99%, would never endorse a candidate who just used her 1% status to avoid an indictment, that would have landed anyone of normal, ‘earthly’ status, into prison.
The New York Times reports:
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is making it official: Former Democratic rival Bernie Sanders will join her at a New Hampshire event on Tuesday where he plans to endorse her.
Hillary Clinton will be speaking in New Hampshire tomorrow, where she will be joined by Bernie Sanders, who will support Clinton under the common mantra of ‘improving America.’
If Bernie endorses Hillary, as expected, then he is nothing more than an American sell out. If his endorsement helps Hillary become President, then the US, and the rest of the world, will not only “feel the Bern”, but also feel extremely queasy, itchy, and red all over.
