Socialist geezer and Democrat Judas goat Bernie Sanders is increasingly looking like a ringer which the more cynical amongst us have suspected all along. Despite a narrow loss in the Iowa caucuses to Queen Hillary – he was probably cheated – and support from a younger demographic the pied piper of Vermont is doing little to wrest the nomination from the Clinton machine. First Bernie didn’t care about any of Hillary’s “damn emails” and now he doesn’t want to call for the release of transcripts of paid speeches that she gave to bloodsucking Wall Street fat cats either. Someone smell a rat here?
The Hill is reporting that “Sanders indifferent on Clinton Wall Street transcripts”:
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Sunday refused to call for primary rival Hillary Clinton to release transcripts of speeches she gave to big banks before running for president.
Asked when he would like the former secretary of State to make her remarks public, Sanders said he had no opinion.
“I have no idea what she said, and I think the decision as to whether or not to release it is her decision,” Sanders said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
When pressed by host Jake Tapper on whether he had a position on the issue, Sanders simply shook his head.
Sanders has previously attacked Clinton for her supposedly cozy relationship with Wall Street.
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have made $153 million in paid speeches since 2001, several of which have been to big banks like Goldman Sachs and UBS.
The former first lady said at last week’s Democratic primary debate that she would “look into” releasing the transcripts.
Mrs. Clinton is naturally stalling on the transcripts which could expose her faux populist shtick as just another bunch of the horseshit that she’s been peddling by the truckload. As for Sanders’ stance, the legions of suckers who have been sipping his Kool Aid should take it as a warning sign that in the end he is going to sell them all out and deliver them to the Queen. But alas, being the useful idiots that they are it will never dawn on the sheep until they round that last bend in the steel chute and end up face to face with the captive bolt pistol. If anyone believes that Bernie is any sort of a real agent of change then they must be smoking what Tommy Chong is.
