Bernie Sanders has seemingly grown a bit of a spine in these last few weeks, and not a moment too soon.
Inside the minds of Bernie’s supporters is a doubt. A creeping, constant worry that the Democratic establishment is going to do everything in their power to keep their candidate off the 2020 ticket. After all, the DNC and then-candidate Hillary Clinton rigged the 2016 primary against him, and would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling Wikileaks.
In 2020, liberated by the exposure of their previous corruption, the Democratic Deep State is unleashing holy hell against Bernie once again – this time right out in the open, for the whole world to see.
James Carville, the ragin’ Cajun and longtime left-leaning political strategist was one of the latest to attack Sanders on television. Today, Bernie bit back.
From an appearance on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360:
Sanders said, “James, in all due respect, is a political hack, who said very terrible things when he was working for Clinton against Barack Obama. I think he said some of the same things. Look, we are taking on the establishment. This is no secret to anybody. We’re taking on the — I guess the former head of Goldman Sachs attacked me yesterday. … And the insurance companies don’t like me. And you know what, the pharmaceutical industry, which is charging us ten times more for the same drugs they sell in Canada, they don’t like me either. Nor does the fossil fuel industry. Because their product happens to be destroying our planet. Nor does the military-industrial complex, or the prison-industrial complex. We are taking on Trump, the Republican establishment, Carville, and the Democratic establishment.”
Carville, who is known for providing his political opinion with the gusto of a good gumbo, isn’t likely to back down on his beliefs regarding Bernie Sanders. This will undoubtedly fuel the already-forming conspiracy theories running rampant in the radical wing of the Democratic Party.
