Here it is ....

Baier asks him if it wasn't the definition of capitalism and the American Dream when he was able to write the book and make that money. He stands up and says no. Then he goes into a shpleel about how he had a college education and was a Senator, and that made it unfair because not everyone else is and everyone should have clean water and health care and stuff.


Hilarious...

Capitalism is when someone else makes money and that is bad....

Socialism is when the socialist makes money and that is good....

Bernie's hypocrisy summed up...

So he is asked isn't his success with his book a product of capitalism and a good thing.

He says no, because he basically is privileged as someone who went to university and is a senator.

Ok so lets take him at his word.

he is basically saying he is not entitled to the money he got because it wasn't the product of hard work or talent, but of privilege.

So tell me again if he believes that why he isn't handing over profits of his book to those not privileged?

Instead he says he will keep his ill gotten wealth, spend it on a lavish lifestyle of sports cars and lake houses, and say other people are the real problem and the government needs to redistribute their money.

Hypocrite,

Evidently , neither did Sanders.

Evidently, he did. Sanders had a huge following in 2016, and actually stood a reasonable chance of defeating Trump IMO. He got a contract to write a book that apparently sold pretty well based on that. I would call that reasonably successful.


So , tell us you are going to run for President
Then feel free to write a satirical biography on why you failed
Join the 1% and Bernie

Even if I were to do so, I would not be holding a press conference explaining why people should vote for me because of all the bad things I do that I am attacking my opponent on.

What we have in this country is corporate communism because all the laws and price fixing is in the billionaire's favor NOT the workers. And it's not hilarious but tragic. At some point the dollar will collapse and we return back to the FDR days.

Makes sense coming from someone whose title under their name is "politics is a waste of time"

Sure there is a problem with corporations using massive government interference to their benefit to accrue power and wealth.

Which is why we don't want the bigger government Bernie is offering.

Had is past tense . 2016 was 3 years ago.
And , yes I know . I was one . Again , said in past tense.
Before folks realized Bernie was a sell-out and kneeled at the feet of the Queen and DNC money

The part about you running as President was satire aimed at Bernie

Yet Bern is yesterday's news except in his own state

It's not cool to earn success. The view is all success is simply handed out or predetermined. Trump whos fortune is in no small part due to his fathers massive wealth doesn't scream rags to riches a reply to: TheRedneck

Oh, crap... and now that you point it out, it's clear as day.

Maybe I temporarily lost a few IQ points listening to Bernie? Maybe it's just temporary?


Anyway, I have heard that same thing from so many people... I used to support Bernie. It's a lot like how I was at first in the 2016 election... Trump was my second choice. My first choice was Ted Cruz... until he lied to try to pull support away from Ben Carson. Once he did that, he went straight to the back of the line.

I had a feeling Bernie's acceptance of the most obviously rigged primary in memory had a similar effect on his supporters. Thanks for backing that up.

Oh, really? Are you aware of how that fortune came about?

Donald Trump's father, Fred, did help him get started. A $1M loan and cosigning on a $70M loan. So? I don't know of many parents who would not try to help their children get started in life. Donald was the reason the Trump Organization went into Manhattan, and thus the reason the Trump Organization prospered, becoming the mutli-billion-dollar business conglomerate it is today.

Fred had some help too, from his father Fred Sr. It was Fred Jr. who took the family business into property development; Fred Sr. was doing small renovations, a little speculation, and running restaurants, after getting his start in the US by working for a barber shop. Again, so? That's just what most parents do... they try to leave something for their children and help them get a start in life.

My home now was built by my father, first for my mother and then for me. It is mine. I may not have built it, but the person who did, chose to give it to me. He also gave me my first car... a worn-out, barely-running 1967 Volkswagon Beetle. Today I drive a 2009 Buick. Did he give me that 2009 Buick? No, he gave me a start... I took it from there. He gave me the start on my home... I took it from there and added outbuildings and improvements.

We all stand on the shoulders of those who came before, and to claim that no one is self-made because of that is simply showing a complete lack of understanding (or caring) about how things actually work. Just more parroting of "You didn't build that." Yes, I did build that, and yes, Trump did build that, and no, you con't have it because you can't be bothered to turn off the video game long enough to do something of consequence.
