Democrats Chose Crazy Over Communism on Mini Tuesday

What happened to Bernie Sanders? The elderly socialist was riding high as the Democratic party front runner and then all of a sudden he’s tanking as bad as Elizabeth Warren. As the votes came in from Mini Tuesday, in which six states held primaries, Sanders wasn’t doing too well. Apparently, Democratic voters prefer crazy to communism.
Bernie Sanders actually won the Michigan primary four years ago against Hillary Clinton, but that ain’t happening this year. With most of the votes in, Joe Biden won Michigan with 52% to Sanders’ 38%. The good news is Elizabeth Warren picked up 1% of the vote proving early voting is a farce.
Sanders woes continued in Mississippi where Biden beat him 81% to 15%. Obviously, black voters don’t care much for ancient honky socialists.
Giving him the “M” state trifecta, Biden also won Missouri with 60%. Sanders only got 35%.
In Idaho Biden beat Sanders 48% to 42%.
In Washington, which Bernie won in 2016 by a landslide, Biden pulled 37% to Sanders’ 35%. Elizabeth Warren had 9% and Michael Bloomberg 8%.
The lone piece of good news for Comrade Bernie is that he won North Dakota with 53% of the vote to Biden’s 39%.
You know things are bad when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie’s biggest supporter, can’t even find a stupidly positive thing to say about Tuesday’s primary contests.
“There’s no sugar-coating this. It’s a tough time for the movement,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
AOC can’t even blame this on racist Republicans who are scared of a strong woman of color since Bernie is a weak white woman.
According to NPR, House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn thinks the Democratic primaries are a little league game and wants the DNC to invoke the “slaughter rule.”
“I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, and quite frankly, if the night ends the way it has begun, I think it is time for us to shut this primary down, it is time for us to cancel the rest of these debates — because you don’t do anything but get yourself in trouble if you continue in this contest when it’s obvious that the numbers will not shake out for you,” said Clyburn.
Clyburn added the funniest thing of the race so far by essentially saying Joe Biden is a lunatic:
Clyburn later added that as the process continues to drag on that Biden will get “himself into trouble” and will say something that he “cannot overcome.”
He’s not wrong, but that’s hardly a ringing endorsement for Joe Biden. The liberal logic at play here is that Biden is such a liability that the Democrats should just give him the nomination because otherwise he’ll say something stupid and end up losing the nomination.
Bernie is so distraught over whacko leftists rejecting his communist revolution that he wouldn’t even address his dwindling supporters. Fox News reports:
“Sanders’ campaign said he would not speak publicly at all Tuesday night — the first time the candidate has declined to address supporters in the aftermath of a primary vote this campaign season.”
