The Latest Ploy to Beat Bernie Has His Supporters STEAMING MAD

All the way back in 2016, which feels a little bit like ancient history at this point, Bernie Sanders was cheated.  Swindled.  Bamboozled.

As he was rising in the polls of the Democratic primaries, rival and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was behind the scenes at the DNC working to stymy him.  Then, just as Clinton was poised to face Donald Trump in the general election, news of this wicked collusion burst forth from Wikileaks, sending Democratic voters into an angsty spiral.  They turned hard away from the party who had cheated Sanders, allowing Donald Trump to rise to power.

Now, in 2020, Bernie is again facing the full brunt of the Democratic machine.  This week, that attack came in the form of a number of other 2020 candidates dropping out of the race to support former Vice President Joe Biden…just in time for Super Tuesday.

Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg – bitter rivals throughout the presidential primary race – are both ending their campaigns and plan to endorse Joe Biden, as part of a concerted effort by lower-performing candidates to close ranks behind the former VP and prevent Bernie Sanders from running away with the nomination.

Klobuchar’s withdrawal comes a day before the Super Tuesday contests and follows former Buttigieg’s exit from the race on Sunday.

Fox News has confirmed that Klobuchar plans to endorse Biden on Monday night in Texas, one of the 14 states holding contests on Super Tuesday. The Associated Press reported that Buttigieg also plans to endorse Biden at the same event in Dallas.

“The Klobuchar campaign confirms the senator is flying to Dallas to join Vice President Biden at his rally tonight where she will suspend her campaign and endorse the vice president,” said Carlie Waibel, the Klobuchar campaign press secretary.

This will surely ruffle the feathers of the Sanders faithful, who already believe that their candidate is being plotted against by the Democratic establishment.
