    He'll be 79 in 2020. The GOP will be celebrating this news today. Thanks for nothing, Bernie. https://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-trump-2016-election-654320

    Doesn't Bernie accept donations from special interests? How many houses does he have? What's his net worth? I call bullshit!

    Sit down and shut up Sanders. You already gave us 🍄rump with your equal to his megalomania. Be damned if you give him a 2nd term. GO THE FUCK AWAY. But before you do... Where are your taxes?

    She might not be working on his campaign again this year, but she is quickly becoming a standard bearer of his views - Meet Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez
