Well, he never was a Democrat. And now that he’s been rejected by Democratic voters — but not before picking up an addiction to the perks of Presidential candidacy — it looks like Bernie Sanders is lunging for the “disaffected GOP populist” vote. Because Trump’s unlikely to be a candidate next time round, since the odds are he’ll be in jail or dead of a fatal infarction!
But I don’t think he’ll win *that* primary, either. I stumbled over this clip from last month’s televised “tax debate”, and what I see is a flustered old man getting pantsed by Ted Cruz and Tim Scott, hardly the deadliest assailants. Good fun for GOP sadists during the early primaries, but Repubs aren’t pity-voters.
Murphy the Trickster God, do I get tired of these crappy never-ending premature reboots!

If the shit Trump said about immigrants and minorities made sense to you I have questions https://t.co/e6tOEYfz4Z

Bernt Up Sanders. It took him an entire year to finally admit there were racist Trump supporters, but naturally he continues to pretend there are "good" Trump supporters who were actually concerned about ethics in gaming journalism or something. https://t.co/K0gMnhjyVx

Yep. I'm much more interested in getting rid of voter suppression laws than wooing white nationalists.

I live in OK. My social circle is overwhelmingly conservative. Let me tell you, none of them voted for Trump because of economic anxiety. It was the Wall. It was gay wedding cakes. It was Ferguson. It was planned Parenthood. It was the ban. It was bigotry.
