I spend so much time reporting BernieBros on twitter for threatening to actually guillotine people usually women and people of color — and then they have the nerve to turn around and say it’s not happening. Like dude, I just finished reporting you for sixteen pictures of a rusty guillotine. How you gonna say I imagined that? I got so frustrated awhile back that every weekday I find an article or piece of evidence like an FEC report or something about Sanders that for any other candidate would kick them right out of contention. I’m on something like day 120 of that series and I’m not even close to running out of material. And he’s such a lying hypocrite. He’s all, “I’m not going to use Super PACs.” And then he’s used super PACs. Then he’s like, “people shouldn’t be racist,” and we find out he’s published the n-word in his books multiple times. And of course there’s the “I’m for Universal Healthcare!” Even though he’s voted against almost every instance of it. Or perhaps, “Let’s do immigration reform,” while he voted for the Minutemen, for indefinite detention at the border, and has multiple speeches on the Congressional floor spanning the better part of a decade about how immigrants are all coming to take ur jobs.

And did you hear? He was warned by intelligence agencies that yet again his campaign is being aided by Russia and he tried to sit on it. I mean, I suppose that’s an improvement from 2016 when he blamed it on Hillary, but … oy vey. Like, I get that the argument for Bernie Sanders is he’s racist and sexist enough that Trump voters will be comfortable voting for him, but Trump voters already have Trump. There’s just no upside to Sanders. Most of his stuff he’s lying about and the rest is both stupid and awful.
