Gotta love it when someone as arrogant as Bernie Sanders is put in his place, especially when he is blasting other people for daring to dream and achieve success, the classic American way.
Alas, given that Sanders reportedly considered the Soviet Union to be a great spot for a honeymoon, what else is to be expected from a wannabe communist authoritarian?
Which is precisely why Sanders has decided to fill his (taxpayer-funded) time with harassing various CEOs for daring to make appropriate business decisions, effectively forcing them away from work and into the swamp for purposes of … nothing.
Specifically, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz found himself defending Starbucks against charges of “illegal union busting,” as declared by Sanders.
And Sanders’s commentary proved to be a bit too much for more than one Republican to take, considering the breathtaking lack of self-awareness.
“The fundamental issue we are confronting today is whether we have a system of justice that applies to all or whether billionaires and large corporations can break the law with impunity,” Sanders brayed.
Uh, wow. Is Sanders serious?
The more appropriate question is whether or not the system of justice is equally applicable to the Biden cadre or not, considering how egregiously they have endangered national security through their nefarious business transactions.
“Over the past 18 months, Starbucks has waged the most aggressive and illegal union busting campaign in the modern history of our country,” Sanders proclaimed, highlighting his alleged “justification” for harassing CEOs.
For reference, Schultz was attempting to deal with unionization efforts in a reasonable manner … though Sanders, who has been averse to work his entire life, apparently thinks that it’s just fine for woke employees to hold a company hostage with various demands.
“People on top have never ever had it so good,” Sanders added snidely, blissfully unaware of how privileged he is … given that he is a multimillionaire who has literally never worked a day in his life.
More like politicians on top have never had it so good, especially when they can routinely violate the Constitution with impunity.
Clearly, Sanders’s commentary proved to be a bit too much for Republican Senator Markwayne Mullin, who cut in and reminded Sanders of some rather inconvenient facts.
“Mr. Chairman, you yourself have been very successful. Rightfully so … Glad you have. You’ve been in office for 28 years and you and your wife have amassed a wealth of over $8 million,” Mullin remarked irritably.
Seriously. Not bad pay, considering all Sanders appears to do is rant and rave and appeal to the most spoiled generation in American history.
“If you can be a millionaire, why can’t Mr. Schultz and other CEOs be millionaires and be honest too? Why is it that Mr. Schultz, who actually creates jobs and [is] the best seller of a book, isn’t creating any jobs? Why is it that he’s corrupt, and you’re not?” Mullins continued, firing off a relentless line of questioning.
Absolutely valid points, and Sanders loves to forget the fact that CEOs can create upwards of hundreds of thousands or multiple millions of jobs, especially when accounting for indirect job creation.
As for Sanders’s response?
Clearly, the communist couldn’t deny the facts, so he did what most leftists do instead: Attack the person.
“I think you got an all-time record here,” Sanders snarled, “you’ve made more misstatements in a shorter period of time than I have ever heard.”
Wow! That’s amazing! So, Mr. Sanders, are you claiming Mullin made more misstatements than Trump?
“If I’m worth $8 million that’s good news to me … I’m not aware of it. That’s a lie,” Sanders raged.
Hm. Sounds awfully familiar.
Kind of like when Biden was just confronted with actual evidence of nefarious dealings with the Chinese and his own family, to which he flatly replied, “that’s not true.”
Deny, deny, deny.
Even when Mullins indicated that Sanders’s net worth is a matter of clear public record, Sanders continued to double down and deny.
“You’re probably looking at some phony right wing internet stuff. It ain’t true,” Sanders snapped.
Right. Interestingly, the “phony right wing” seems to have the real story, given that the so-called “phone right wing” called out Hunter Biden’s laptop(s) from the start for what they really were …
