The raging, wizened socialist, Sen. Bernie Sanders. with his unashamed support for socialism was not happy at all with former President Barack Obama having recently accepted a $400,000 payment deal to be a speaker at a conference in 2017.
Sanders had this to say on CBS News:
“I think he, as a president, represented our country with integrity and intelligence, but I think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of Wall Street and the big money interests, I think it is unfortunate that President Obama is doing this.”
Sanders wan’t the only Socialist, anti-capitalist queer duck distressed by the former president’s confessedly discerning money-making opportunity.
“I was troubled by that,” the horrible Sen. Elizabeth Warren lamented. It affected Warren so much in fact, she used the time to also hawk her terrible book. Don’t you love how proclaimed socialists love to participate in capitalist activities?
“One of the things I talk about in the book (“This Fight is Our Fight”) is the influence of money. I describe it as a snake that slithers through Washington. And that it shows up in so many different ways here in Washington.”
Jim Geraghty of National Review reminded everyone that “(i)t’s a free country, and he’s not violating any law, government regulation or ethics code.”
…BUT, the issue I have with this move myself is that for eight years, Obama did nothing if not root and divide for wealth inequality! This move by this guy at THIS time is nothing short of hypocrisy to the fullest! Yet, the media does what? Nothing. Not a peep.
We are really living in bizzaro world. The best thing that came out of this is that socialists Sanders and Warren are at least eating their own…though that’s not much of a comfort coming from these two anyways, so…
In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 17: “If you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.” We know what Obama believes in – himself and that’s it.
