NBC shocked the vast majority of its liberal viewers after speaking the truth about 2020 presidential contender Bernie Sanders.
And it was hilarious.
From Daily Wire:
It turns out, the less you pay attention to politics, the more likely you are to support the socialist option for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

“The less you are paying attention, the more likely you are a Bernie Sanders supporter,” Todd says, pointing to a Monmouth poll taken recently showing that Sanders is losing definite ground to both former Vice President Joe Biden and a suddenly-much-stronger Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has jumped between 5 and 6 points in the polls since Biden entered the race.
The implication, of course, is that Sanders voters are “low information.” Todd’s panel seems to agree, pointing out that Warren has been working harder than Sanders at courting primary state voters, and that Warren built on Sanders’ 2016 campaign, turning what was then mere policy positions into what is now definitive policy proposals.
Reactions from Bernie fans…
It is obvious that Chuck Todd and others at NBC (owned by corporate Comcast) are Biden supporters. They are afraid of Bernie. They constantly try to spin things against Bernie. https://t.co/eiWbAmDpKX

So, the less you consume anti-Bernie propaganda, the more likely you are to support him? I hope someone got paid a lot of money to uncover that gem. https://t.co/wUblLser34

Sanders figures to be one of two men standing at the end of the day when Democrats decide on their presidential nominee.
If the socialist somehow gets the nod and goes on to defeat President Trump in the general election, he promises your taxes will rise and there will be no more private insurance companies.
In other words, full-on socialism.
Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you will!”
Sanders and fellow candidate “Beto” O’Rourke spoke at a forum for “women of color.”
You know, because everything has to be about race for the left.
Unfortunately for both liberals candidates, they were heckled.
From Free Beacon:
Sanders and O’Rourke, both white and male, were among several Democratic candidates for president to speak at the She the People presidential forum. The organization describes itself as “a national network connecting women of color to transform our democracy.”
Whereas Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) had “some breakthrough moments,” as MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson put it, Sanders and O’Rourke struggled.
“Both got a little less than warm reception from the roughly 1,500 black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Arab American women in the room, with Sanders at one point even getting heckled,” Jackson said.
The Vermont socialist and independent drew derisive laughter when pointing to his record on race. He reminded the audience that he marched with Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., drawing hoots from the crowd.
“Black women will be an integral part of what our campaign and our administration is about,” he said over boos and shouts.
