At every turn they clapped and cheered, enamored with the candidate’s prescriptions for universal healthcare, a humane attitude toward immigrants and the rejection of climate change denialism.

Bernie Sanders was the candidate, and the people clapping and cheering were audience members who turned out in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for a televised town hall on Monday night sponsored by none other than Fox News.

Linkage

It was interesting. The Fox audience seemed to care about what he said and the cheers Medicare makes me think that the people who are getting screwed over by corporate manipulation really are just people. Bernie jumped the barrier and started talking to the very people that Trump's hate campaign appealed to. And he was a human being.

Socialist or not, Bernie took the gloves off.

1. Bernie was smart to go on fox. All candidates should reach out to the other side.

2. There is no proof the majority of the crowd were trump voters or republicans. Just being in an audience on fox does not prove they are republicans.

3. Nice of foxs hosts to give Bernie a fair shake. Do you think CNN or MSNBC would do the same for trump?

4. Trumps hate campaign? Unlike Bernie who claims trumps policies kill people, trumps immigration plans that many people support are racist, and white people cant experience poverty like other races? Yeah old Bernie sounds like he is all about love.

5. Medicare for all may be popular for people. The current healthcare system sucks, I think Medicare for all will be a disaster. We shall see though.

6. Lets see how many people support Bernies support for the Green new deal, and eliminating cars in ten years, along with planes, giving racial based moneys to people, etc.

7. Bernie has no answers to the fact he is a hypocrite who rails against the one percent, while being the 1 percent and desiring more power.

It never fails to amaze me how some people will absolutely CHEER when a politician openly states that he will raise their taxes.

It boggles the mind!

~Sigh~...

It was a Fox News town hall for BS. (Bernie Sanders).

Bernie supporters came to see him speak.

Trump supporters (or people who can do math) did not.

This isn't some sort of BS catalyst for normal members of American society who have suddenly decided that being taxed into oblivion is suddenly awesome.

It is a crowd of BS supporters.



And Bernie didn't take any gloves off... when asked about higher taxes he started ranting about how he didn't vote for Trump's tax plan.

But yet according to his tax records, he had no issue using it to his economic advantage.

Hypocrite.

Seems like a pretty dumb move by Fox if they let their host get that far away from his comfort zone. That said, maybe they are that dumb. Obama won that region and Pensylvania isn't that far from Vermont - which is Bernies home ground.



3. Nice of foxs hosts to give Bernie a fair shake. Do you think CNN or MSNBC would do the same for trump?

CNN is not a liberal wonderland by any sort and if you thought so then you aren't paying attention.



4. Trumps hate campaign? Unlike Bernie who claims trumps policies kill people, trumps immigration plans that many people support are racist, and white people cant experience poverty like other races? Yeah old Bernie sounds like he is all about love.


What? That sounds like you took a wide brush and painted the side of your mouth. Because it makes no sense.



5. Medicare for all may be popular for people. The current healthcare system sucks, I think Medicare for all will be a disaster. We shall see though.

6. Lets see how many people support Bernies support for the Green new deal, and eliminating cars in ten years, along with planes, giving racial based moneys to people, etc.


Politics aside, the Green New Deal is inevitable. What do you think about increased automation. Electric cars? How about self sustaining cars driven by AI? Many jobs are on the line and the only people who benefit from that technological advance are the oligarchs in charge. The whole debate on jobs and outsourcing them and coal becomes obsolete in ten years and I am sure that you have considered that...

He was arrested in a civil rights protest and only recently made a mint because he wrote a book.

So why hasn't Trump released his tax records?

Bernie released his.

Trump is the hypocrite from where I stand.

Gambler covered most points. Since I'm from the area, I can tell you that audience was.not Conservative. I had quite a few of my liberal friends go to it. I just can't see how raising everyone's taxes gets cheered. Mindboggling. I didn't know our current immigration policies were inhumane. Interesting since they Have been in place for a long time.
There was a decent sized Trump crowd outside also. I had friends at that, but little coverage on them.

No matter how much Mr Sanders Paid in income tax President Trump has paid tenfold more over his lifetime. Mr Sanders was unemployed until he was 40 years old, so he did not pay income tax for those years, Mr Sanders never made the monies he did in the last 3 years, so paid less then President Trump. Funny how math is killing Mr Sanders

I did try to watch this on FOXNEWS but after 10 minutes of obfuscation and double speak platitudes I could take no more Mr Sanders

I'm guessing that you have as much interaction with him as I do Sanders.

So, same thing. Don't hypocrite in the middle of people pointing hypocrite fingers.

Unless, now hear me out here....

Fox wasn't trying to take out Bernie! maybe it wasn't a dumb move on their part because they just asked people to attend without saying they had to be republicans.

But of course you assume otherwise.

If you think CNN isn't totally in the book for the democratic party you haven't been paying attention. Having a few people not running for office with an R next to them doesn't show they would give trump a fair shjake in a town hall. we k ow they wouldn't. I mean, they did just push the Russia collusion lie for 2 years, but what do I know.




What? That sounds like you took a wide brush and painted the side of your mouth. Because it makes no sense.


Yes I know its hard. as always, left wing people say they are all about love, and when they site problems its about love. But when republicans like trump site problems its all about hate.

Its absurd.





-Canada enters the game-



What? Again, I think politically medicare for all may be a winner, though I personally think it will be a disaster.





Politics aside, the Green New Deal is inevitable. What do you think about increased automation. Electric cars? How about self sustaining cars driven by AI? Many jobs are on the line and the only people who benefit from that technological advance are the oligarchs in charge. The whole debate on jobs and outsourcing them and coal becomes obsolete in ten years and I am sure that you have considered that...


Yes green tech is inevitable. I will come in plenty of time to save the earth under free market conditions. The dems and bernies desire to eliminate planes and cars in ten years, while refitting every building, and giving racial based moneys to people will destroy this country before the inevitable transition will take place.

I do know what I am talking about

the 1 % is people who earn in the top one percent for income.


How Much Do You Need?
The top 5% of earners had average annual wages of $299,810 in 2017, according to the Social Security data. That’s more than five times the 2017 average wages of $53,474. Overall, this group lays claim to a 28.1% share of wages in the U.S.

To be certified as a one-percenter, you’ll need to earn $718,766. One-percenters have a 13.4% share of wages.


www.investopedia.com...

You know, like Bernie earning over 1 million two years in a row.


But just like Bernie I guess your definition changes based on poltical beliefs. Its bad for some people to be rich, but not Bernie! he's good 1%!

So you're in the camp that Trump should release his taxes instead of suing his own people to prevent that?

SoOo... Trump's tax returns are more important to you than the actual topic, which is BS.

This is called deflecting, btw.

BS's economic policies will (if he gets any support whatsoever in the House and Senate) absolutely decimate our economy, as pointed out by the CBO the last time he ran.

Now don't get me wrong... if Bernie wins the primary I will vote for him in the general.

Because I personally think that this 100 year creep the Progressives have going needs to come to a head... like now.

Then you and yours can crash the economy, the riots and town burnings and starvation and death can get out of the way and the people that are left can start to rebuild... with the memory of what Bernie actually stands for ideologically burnt into the cultural memory for centuries.

So sure.. I'm a BS supporter in that regard...

Then why do it?

Hear me out. Fox would have benefited more from a Hilary Presidency than a Trump Presidency. Because all Fox knows is how to cry Victim.

Maybe they want Bernie or even Buttigieg...so they can go back to being the backburner.

Nowadays? They're being accused of being the Truth of Ministry. In fiction land, that is kind of funny. In reality, flunk that. They have realistic issues from the other side that can't be fixed where before they were just annoying.

You obviously don't know. And don't read. CNN is middle ground and they're bought. GO back to the links I gave you.

You're attacking CNN instead of MSNBC. Yes. I am paying attention.

The dems and bernies desire to eliminate planes and cars in ten years, while refitting every building, and giving racial based moneys to people will destroy this country before the inevitable transition will take place.


I just can't believe that you literally typed that 'dems and bernie want to eliminate planes and cars'.

My mind is boggled at the clear misrepresentation.
