Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, is a tribal leader just like President Donald Trump.
Sanders and Trump are both angry, old, white men. Trump is angry at anyone who isn’t as lily white as he is, and Bernie Sanders is angry at successful business people who create hundreds of thousands of jobs for the rest of us.
Both Trump and Sanders cater to their respective bases. We know Trump can’t and won’t unite this nation, it’s not his mode of operation. Sanders, too, is a divisive candidate, he’ll be a divisive nominee and God forbid, another divisive president.
Trump has to disavow neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Sanders has to disavow hate-filled online attacks by his “Bernie Bros” against people who support other candidates and vandalizing local campaign offices of competing candidates. I don’t see much difference.
Democrats, wake up! It’s your responsibility to return the White House to an adult who can bring this country together. Please don’t blow it!
