I cannot in good conscience vote for Bernie Sanders in any election. His supporters are *still* harassing me personally not to mention what they’ve done to a few of my friends of color. And … yeah … as you say he did not actually do his duty and he was incredibly sexist when he pretended to. Sanders is the reason we have a Trump Presidency and if I’m being honest as undeniably awful as Trump is I cannot see Sanders being able to do any better even if he wanted to. It is a conscious effort on my part, not to hate him and I thank God almighty that we’ve got people like Pelosi and Feinstein and Harris to desperately hold this democracy together with scotch tape, glue, and willpower. I hate white man identity politics. White men need to run on more than just being white men.

Oh, and to be just an absolute gossip, there’s a politico article that relates Sanders refusal to campaign for HRC even such as he did unless he was flown about on a private jet. Working class advocate, indeed.
