When I say “Bernie Bro,” you think….
Literally everyone who follows politics was aware of the claim that the “Bernie Bros” were sexist by the end of the campaign. There’s no way he wasn’t aware. Or rather, not way that’s even remotely a defense of the organization and “movement” that he led. He’d have to have been extraordinarily out of touch to not have.
Wait….hang on. This took me about 60 seconds to find using the Google Machine:
Bill Clinton rips Sanders backers’ ‘sexist,’ ‘profane’ attacks
Bill Clinton lashed out at “sexist” and “profane” attacks on Hillary Clinton and her supporters by proponents of Bernie Sanders, and accused them of harassing those who don’t back the Vermont senator’s campaign or disagree with his policies.
Speaking in New Hampshire on Sunday, Clinton delivered an extended rebuke of the Sanders supporters, whom he said subject people who back his wife to “vicious trolling.
So what…I’m supposed to believe that he wasn’t aware of the fact that former President Bill Clinton called him out for this exact thing just days before the New Hampshire primary. Because a campaign that allows this sort of thing to go on among its most vocal supporters is always going to have similar problems inside its campaign staff. Always. This is one of those “fish rots from the head” sorts of problems that our ridiculous methods of electioneering are actually pretty good at exposing.
And this is just the first article I found in an incredibly quick Google search. There are more, many more, where that came from. So….either he’s lying or he’s trying to pretend like the two things are not connected. And neither of those choices improves his position.
