After Watching Bernie Sanders Town Hall Meeting, I'm Confident He Would've Been The Next POTUS

Submitted by: normalfreak2 7 months ago in News & Politics


Trump won Kenosha County, Wisconsin, by fewer than 300 votes; it’s a county that had not voted for a Republican in a presidential election in nearly 50 years. Last night, Bernie Sanders held a town hall meeting with Trump voters to discuss their decision.

After watching this town hall, and hearing Sanders' message, I'm confident he would have won last month's election. He has the character and credentials of an outsider. Sure, there are things I have disagreements with him about, no candidate will ever be perfect, but he was the only other "change candidate," and he was willing to engage with people who were 100 percent against him. He wasn't beholden, nor cared what the elites thought. It's a fascinating watch from Kenosha Wisconsin.

So whether you agree or disagree with Bernie, I think it's worth noting we have to talk to people we don't agree with. That lines of communication must be opened though so we can work with people who have been forgotten. The person that voted for Trump most likely isn't a racist, they have different priorities and not addressing those priorities is why we have the president-elect we have (and the argument would've been the same, no matter who won).

And the meanest of the voters go to both Hillary's idiots who are frothing at the mouth and Trump's voters who are also frothing at the mouth. At this point, I don't give two fucks what becomes of the good ol' USA. I have my savings. If I have to pack up and watch it implode, it will be glorious.

LaLaPancakes   If you are going to accuse someone of something, don't be surprised when they decide to become guilty.  [EDIT: pictures removed due to civilly presented argument against them by Squrlz4Ever.  My point has been made.  LalaPancakes I am extending an olive branch]

I wanted Bernie to get into the White House in the worst way. Every time I think of it, I just shake my head at what might have been. Uggh.

Maybe, but we’ll never know.  The DNC and MSM wanted Clinton and Bernie lacked the balls to stand up to them.

I'm finding it hard to disagree with your assessment.  I'm not sure it was a lack of balls.  He, pretty much, has had the same message his entire adult life. He hasn't been afraid to go his own way.  Progressives and Liberals need to take a page out of Bernie's message and really find someone that can be seen as truly embracing those ideals.  I don't know who that is in politics currently.  Maybe Tammy Duckworth?

too bad the DNC cheated him and he took a knee and kissed Hillary's ring anyway.

Yeah, I don't think it's that Sanders lacked the balls, he was just going against Clinton who had deep enough pockets to throw money at making sure Sanders was dismissed. I'm no political expert, but I'd say Hillary had most to do with killing his momentum.

He knew they were conspiring against him and when the E-mails started coming out it was obvious (a large part of me thinks maybe it was Bernie the Russians were trying to help, why wouldn’t they want a socialist as POTUS and nobody really wanted Clinton) but he did nothing but demand Debbie Whats-Her-Name resign and they replaced her with someone that had given Clinton questions that would be in the debates between them. He should have demanded much more like a discussion/vote the first day of the convention. I actually think folks like Bernie and Liz should start a new party, I’m not sure the majority of Dems really wish to lean that far left.

I think Russia would benefit more from Trump as president than anyone else. I think Russia knows Trump will play ball with them. I don't think Sanders would show as much admiration for Putin as Trump has.
