Bernie Sanders sure is a class act, I’m telling you. This fool is legit trying to peddle his ‘need’ for an event as more important than a way for the homeless not to freeze to death. Good job, Bern:

This truly is sad. Perhaps Bernie should have said “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus’ sonnet, New Colossus, and just happens to be one of the best known quotes from the Statue of Liberty. Do you represent America, Bernie? Do you? Shouldn’t you have made room for those freezing in the cold?
