Bernie is starting to sound a lot like Trump. Basically "everybody is picking on me" is his basic whine. Now, however, the newspapers are also picking on him. The battle now seems to be who is the one most abused by everybody. The difference in who has the power and that would be Trump. I have full confidence that, should Bernie win (unlikely), he will start telling everybody how to live their lives too.

Given his history in Congress why in the world would anybody assume he could get ANY legislation passed?

Just wondering. Hell, he didn't even bother to show up to vote over half the time.............

Link please? Video maybe? I'd like to see Bernie behaving as badly as Trump!

Sanders missed 2.5% of votes (15 of 599 votes) in the 115th Congress.

Are you just making this stuff up JGW? Why not attack Bernie's policies if you don't like them rather than attacking the man?
Here's where Bernie stands on the issues.

You want more brass tacks on his economic proposals?
Read this from from Investopedia

You aren't going to find the word socialism anywhere because Bernie is not a socialist nor are his policies or proposals.

That's future President-elect Bernie Sanders, Greger. He's winning Nevada.

Not if the corporate sponsors of the party have they’re way. They’re called super delegates.

He's actually killing it in Nevada. Only 2.38% reporting so far, but he's getting almost 57%. I think a caucus ends early when one candidate gets over 50% of the votes. So they can quit voting and report their results.

Evidently all the food service workers think they would be better off with Bernie than paying union dues to keep their medical plan.

If he gets to the convention with over 50%, the super-delegates won't get their second ballot.

Seeing the same here. Has the lions share of the casino precincts with wide margins.
Bellagio, Mandalay, Park MFM, Rio and Wynn went to Sanders.
Tied at Harrah’s.
Lost Paris.

Entrance polls have him getting over 50% of Latino vote.
Rank and file broke hard for Sanders with Culinary Union.

Clinton camp declaring it a victory for Putin....
Warren was doomed hiring those people.
