Bernie has made a weird and obviously biased comment about voters.

Here it is as quoted:

"It is an embarrassment, I think, to the entire of Democratic Party that millions of white working-class people decided to vote for Mr. Trump, which suggests that the Democratic message of standing up for working people no longer holds much sway among workers in this country," Sanders said.


So now we still have the dividing and biased agenda going.

He also apparently isn't ruling out a run in 2020.

Sanders unfortunately has bad credibility after endorsing Clinton and now especially with this racial slur.

Jesus. What happened to Obama's and Clinton's call for cooperation?

Bernie Sanders doesn't rule out a 2020 White House run

Blaming it all on white workers that we now have Trump is the racial slur.

Bernie is not business as usual, despite the flak he has received for pushing for Clinton. And this is not a racial slur.

One cannot actually commit a racial slur, when speaking of people considered to be of ones own race. When it's intra racial, it's considered social commentary. Hence the difference between a white person using the n word, and a person of colour using the same word. They have totally different meanings and implications, because of the relation the speaker has to the target of the word or statement.

And Bernie is bang on with this one.

Too bad his supporters didn't hold protests and marches in major cities after it came out that Bernie was cheated out of the nomination... but they are marching now?

Just goes to show that all these protests aren't even genuine, but nothing more than organized anarchy brought on by surrogates for the DNC/Soros machine.

I don't think it is embarrassing at all. He is his own Man and doesn't have to follow Obama or Hillary's opinion.

You also have to keep something else in Mind I'm sure you don't want to bring up, that is the fact that Non-College Educated Voted for Trump. I do think that is a Big Factor.

the dnc should be embarrassed, he is right. the dnc picked the only candidate that out scummed trump in just about every issue and scandal.

the DNC did the impossible and made trump the more viable candidate.

Suggesting that's a racial slur is a real stretch I think.
He's merely pointing out that the Dems failed to appeal to a particular demographic and it's embarrassing to the party.
If anything, he's being honest in his assessment of their loss.
They didn't appeal to white, working-class people.
I've never heard that phrase used as a racial slur. In fact, most folks I know who would identify with that term are proud of it.

Sorry, but that isn't remotely a racial slur. Please....

Yet the college educated are the ones running the country and they have failed to solve what they call "the problem".

The college educated are responsible for every single financial crisis and meltdown too.

Maybe there's really not much difference between the "educated" and the "non educated".

Bernie, there is a reason they voted for Trump.

Because you endorsed Hillary. You were supposed to be the voice of the working class, and yet you came out in endorsement of Hillary, the ultimate wall street candidate.

This is entirely on you.

Where do these rules come from, it seems definitions are changing daily.

How can I racially insult my fellow crackers.

America doesn't want Bernies politics. He's like Clinton only with a bigger heart to give our taxes away. As a single male, don't worry, I'll slave myself away to pay for everyone's healthcare and education. What the nearly 30% I pay now is not enough, take 50. The working classclass, educated or not, gave two middle fingers to the status quo. After Bernie caved and then backed Clinton showed he's another spineless politician that will play along to stay relevant. Long line of those, Trumps the boss now, you're all fired.
