JUST IN: Bernie Sanders Gives DEFIANTLY ANGRY Response To Trump Being Elected President (DETAILS)


A top aide to Senator Bernie Sanders said that the campaign had nothing positive to say about Donald Trump’s electoral victory.

‘We have nothing polite to say right now,’ the Sanders adviser said, CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reported

Sanders has a bit of a reputation as a grumpy old man, but he’s proven himself to be gracious in defeat so if he can’t think of anything polite to say about Trump then he must be truly concerned.

Despite a hard-fought primary campaign, the Vermont senator quickly threw his support behind Hillary Clinton and rallied his supporters to defeat Trump. Sanders may not have always seen eye to eye with Clinton, but he has stated that he believes Trump is the most dangerous person to be a major party’s nominee in the modern history of the United States.

At a Clinton rally, Sanders called Trump a “pathological liar” and said he was dividing the country. Sanders is correct in his assessment of Trump as a liar. There are countless sources documenting Trump’s many lies. But, for whatever reason, the American people choose to ignore those facts and elect a pathological liar to the White House.

Sanders has also called Trump out for the divisiveness of his campaign. Trump built his campaign on racism and bigotry and even earned the endorsement of the KKK. Apparently, we underestimated the number of white nationalists in this country.

On election day, Sanders tweeted a picture of himself voting and said that he hopes Trump is defeated.

‘I hope today we defeat Donald Trump and we defeat him badly.

Unfortunately, Trump was not defeated. The GOP nominee went on to a surprise victory and led the Republican Party to majorities in both houses of Congress. What this means for the future of Sanders’ political revolution remains to be seen. Progressives can at least take some comfort in the fact that Sanders will never stop fighting for progress and will oppose Trump every step of the way. Let’s just hope it is enough to prevent Trump’s worst excesses.
