John Kerry Trashes 2020 Candidate, Accuses Them of ‘Taking Down’ Entire Democratic Party

For as “tolerant” as those on the left purport to be, they sure do seem to hate it when the younger wing of the Democratic Party starts to exert their influence on the organization.

Of course, they absolutely love pandering to social and cultural groups who are ever-more on the fringes of society in order to lock up their votes, but they certainly couldn’t care less about actually pushing the Democratic agenda in the direction that these millennial masses want it to go.

Otherwise, the Democratic establishment wouldn’t be completely stacking the deck against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.”

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.”

Asked about the call later Sunday, Kerry said he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race. He reiterated the sentiment in a tweet later, saying “any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false.” Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and reposted it without the expletive.

The kerfuffle comes just days after another former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, dissed Sanders as well, telling a documentary film crew that “nobody likes” Sanders.

Several staffers working with the Bernie campaign have alluded to the possibility that there could be violence in the streets should the Vermont Senator be seemingly cheated out of the primary race.
