CNN’s Inside Politics Monday afternoon took turns dragging Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and the Democratic Party through the mud.
“I believe you’re going to see it in Montana. I believe you’re going to see it all over this country. In the many so-called red states, working people are going to wake up and say wait a second, Republicans want to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and education and they want to give hundreds of billions of dollars of tax breaks to the top one percent. No, that’s not what we elected Trump to do. Yeah, climate change is real, it’s not a hoax,” Sanders said in a clip played by Inside Politics host John King, who proceeded to fact-check Sanders’ claims.
“I mean, Bernie Sanders in some ways sounds like a broken record,” CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said, before bashing the entire Democratic Party.
“If we learned anything from the Hillary Clinton campaign, no matter what party you’re in, spend a lot of time on what you’re for, not just what you’re against,” King concluded. “My two cents worth.”
