South Carolina was a breath of fresh air. I remember about a month prior to Super Tuesday in 2016 when the BernieBros were crowing that they were already victorious one of my friends took me aside and more or less said, “just wait until Super Tuesday.” And wow, was he right.

I’m of two minds here: Sanders has managed to shut down a lot of dissent despite being outed for more or less Trump on a bad hair day, and Biden’s fine, but he’s no Hillary Clinton. While Sanders was effectively and practically eliminated on Super Tuesday in 2016 I’m still a bit worried he’s going to hang about and spoil this one.

On the other hand he’s been underperforming relative to how he did in 2016 when he got smashed. And I’m not so sure about Warren as you are, but I do think his burned bridges will come back to haunt him.

What really gets me is people keep telling me that millenials support Bernie Sanders. I’m an actual millenial. Most of my friends are actual millenials. We millenials do not support Bernie Sanders, black millenials voted for Biden in SC, millenials didn’t turn out for Sanders basically anywhere so why is everyone insisting on this false narrative?

Ultimately, I’d like to see Sanders be properly vetted just for once. I mean, I already voted for Biden in CA so this isn’t a matter of me being confused as to whom I should vote for … I just want to see Sanders be held to the same standard as everyone else. He praised Fidel Castro and everyone was like, “*shrug* that’s Bernie!” Just …. no. I’m absolutely horrified at the ghost of a possibility of him facing off against Trump because he would lose so bad it would destroy democracy as a system.
