• Bernie Sanders: The Clintons Are Money Hustlers

    Vermont senator and surprise Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders is proving to be the little socialist engine that could.

    Sanders’ latest comments about the chances that high-dollar checks may have corrupted the Clintons, is creating a lot of buzz for what many have called a nonstarter White House bid.

    In a CNBC interview released Tuesday, Sanders said Bill and Hillary Clinton’s money “hustle” makes the former secretary of state and her philandering former president husband out of touch with the average American voter.

    “Theoretically you could be a multibillionaire and, in fact, be very concerned about the issues of working people,” Sanders said. “Theoretically that’s true.”

    But “When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend—I don’t know what they spend—hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world that you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt,” Sanders said.

    Sanders’s comments come from information found in recently released financial documents that reveal just how the Clinton’s bagged more than $25 million in speeches since 2014. That fat figure is part of the more than $130 million in speaking fees that the corrupt couple has made since Bill Clinton left the White House.

    Sanders also says he’s “very concerned” about whether Hillary Clinton is capable of understanding poor peoples’ issues because she’s so filthy rich.

    Of course Sanders also bashed America’s capitalist economy, questioning its moral nature altogether.

    Coincidentally, Bernie Sanders votes for and supports big government policies which tend to overwhelmingly benefit the same big businesses and corporations that he claims exploit Americans via an immoral economy.

    Perhaps Bernie should just stick to bashing Hillary.
