Bernie Sanders is familiar with hypocrisy. At all, he is the one who says he hates capitalism but made over a million dollar just last year. Over $800,000 he made from an advance on his new book “Our Revolution.”
His presidential campaign was based on “anti-establishment,” even though he has been a Washington, D.C. insider for approximately 30 years.
And now there is another proof of his hypocrisy, while he is criticizing everyone with sexual assault allegations, Sanders still stands behind Bill Clinton denying that he should’ve resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Jake Tapper asked Sanders on the “State of the Union” if he agrees with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
The Democrat lawmaker recently came forward against “Slick Willy’s” actions in the late 90s, when Clinton was handlining the allegations of having an affair with a young intern.
Sanders didn’t want to answer but gave some strange response that proved he is an establishment politician after all.
“I don’t think that at this moment our goal is to look back 20 years or 30 years,” Sanders stated.
“Our goal is to go forward and our goal is to understand that we have a real crisis in this country today within the political world, within the corporate world, within the media world where women are being harassed every single day,” he said.
The reason why there is a “crisis within the political world” is due to a people like him who refuse to speak out. He is in the political world and now he has the perfect opportunity to stand against the sexual deviant behavior, but he chose to stay silent.
At least Kirsten Gillibrand attempted to give the reasonable response when she was asked by The New York Times if Clinton should’ve stepped down back then when the scandal emerged.
“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she said.
It seems Sanders’ refusal to stand against Bill Clinton inappropriate behavior is just a way to defend his fellow Sen. Al Franken, who right now is facing sexual harassment allegations.
And when Sanders was actually asked about Sen. Al Franken he said, “My understanding is that Al is a very popular senator. People in Minnesota think that he is doing a good job and his political future will rest with the people of Minnesota.”
So here is the truth, a president was caught assaulting women and he stayed silent, a senator was caught groping a sleeping woman and he still says nothing. But when other people are accused of sexual misconducts he jumps into attacking them. Yep this is the definition of hypocrisy.
