“I don’t mean to be disrespectful,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told CNN‘s Jake Tapper on Sunday morning, “but this guy’s a fraud.”

The immediate reference was to a meeting President Donald Trump held with Wall Street executives on Friday in which he vowed—in what Common Dreamsreported as a “spectacular betrayal”—to repeal key elements of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill enacted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

    LIKE I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES IN THE PAST, I DID NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE AND I DO NOT BELONG TO ANY POLITICAL PARTY; ALTHOUGH, I AM A CONSPIRACY REALIST (AND THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL PARTY), ONLY A MATTER OF RECOGNIZING CONSPIRACIES AND EXPLORING FACTS ARRIVING AT THE TRUTH. BERNIE SANDERS IS COMPLETELY HONEST OF WHAT HE IS AND BELIEVES, AS A SOCIALIST/DEMOCRAT. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT IN THE HELL TRUMP IS, DURING HIS CAMPAIGN, HE GAVE THE APPEARANCE OF BEING MORE OF A POPULAR PLATFORM THAN A CONSERVATIVE, AT THE END THESE LABEL SHALL MEAN NOTHING. IT IS TO MY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING THAT IN THE YEAR 2000, HE RAN ON THE REFORM PARTY. THIS MAN CHANGES HIS MIND ON ISSUE SO MANY TIMES, LIKE PEOPLE CHANGE TOWELS AND SHEETS. I REALLY DID NOT LIKE OBAMA EITHER, I DOUBT AT THIS TIME IF THERE IS ANYONE I AGREE WITH, BUT I DO HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OBAMA, HE HAS NOT FLIP FLOPPED AT MUCH AS TRUMP; EVEN THOUGH, HE CAME IN AS A BAIT AND SWITCH PRESIDENT. THE UNITED STATES IS IN THE WORSE SHAPE IT HAS EVER BEEN IN HISTORY, AND I MEAN THE WORSE SHAPE. WASHINGTON, D.C. HAS TURNED INTO BE NOTHING MORE THAN A SERIES OF VAMPIRES SUCKING THE BLOOD AND LABOR OUT OF THE PEOPLE. I HAVE TO SAY BERNIE IS RIGHT, AND HISTORY SHALL PROVE HIM CORRECT.

  2. Bernie Sanders can ill afford to take the high road and commence to name calling because he too, is a fraud. He had millions of backers who he threw under the bus when he caved to the Clinton camp. Bernie Sanders is a turncoat and a wimp and to now pretend that he is more than he is is just disgusting. He needs to sit the hell down and shut up because maybe, just maybe…if he had not caved, we would not be where we are now, moaning about President Donald Trump! Sanders is a Washington ‘insider’ and he knew what could happen and what ‘could’ happen, did happen. Trump as president happened!

  3. I share many of your sentiments about Bernie, Shelby. I think he’s using the fact that he still has a large following among young people. Hopefully he will use this platform to try to introduce some sanity into the current political debate – someone needs to.

  5. There’s no way anyone with the potential to seriously shake up the system is ever going to be accurately reported on CNN.

    Yes, unfortunately, as Shelby Courtland says above, Sanders himself was a fraud. “OK, now vote for Hilary, people!” Good one, Bernie!
