    Btw his supporters will tell you he's been on the right side of history for decades. The equivalent of this is a life coach telling someone to exercise, drink water, eat healthy, and then jump off the Empire State Building.

    I heard a rumor that you used to be a Bernie Bro. Is that true?

    it was an ignorant comment imo. they visited certain big cities and he commented on what he saw with a weak caveat that they didnt conduct a study. he's giving his anecdotal take on it, and we all know anecdotes =/= data

    i dont see what these comments have to do with his candidacy, though

    You were one of his supporters-- what did you tell people about him?

    He has a history of praising multiple failed states with ideologies similar to his. I'm not sure how his catastrophic assessments aren't relevant.

    he acknowledged that he was commenting on what he saw and that he hadn't conducted a study. in that same video, his group was commenting on the limitations of foods available at markets, plumbing situations outside the cities. i dont think it was a smart comment on his part but hardly something disqualifying

    Seems like you're suggesting the Reagan Battalion may have misrepresented the full scope of Bernie's comments. What's next, are we going to question James Woods' sincerity?

    Meh. On the other hand you have the Trump party candidate fawning over dictators like Un, and MBS.

    'Why shouldn't I like him?' Trump piled praise on Kim Jong Un in his first interview since their summit collapsed

    Why should I care about what Sanders has to say in 1988 (or whenever)?

    Nathan gets more nervous than a fat man at a salad bar when the topic of his prior Bernie support gets brought up.

    There’s no question his socialism / past comments supporting communist dictators will be a problem — I just don’t know how much in this particular election. Trump is such a polarizing figure that I don’t think comments from decades ago are going to affect too many swing votes. If this election were Sanders vs. Romney then it’s a different story.

    2016 proved all you have to do to win the presidency is turn enough people in the right places off. This will work in rube land, and I can see Bernie completely ing up a response to questions/attacks about it. It's not what we think; it's what they think.

    I said a long time ago when some Dems were embracing the term socialist because the GOP would call them that anyway that the GOP would just say great now we can call them commies.

    Personally I think the name fits just based on his healthcare plan

    i thought 2016 proved that a candidate can have probably the worst track record with quotes and still get elected if he's able to convince the voters that he's going to help them

    The people in rube land you’re talking about are voting for Truml anyway, there’s no Democratic candidate who’s going to win their vote.

    The obsession Democrats have with trying to find a candidate who Republicans will like the most is increasingly bizarre.

    Not sure I'd say bizarre tbh. This is a party that rebuilt itself in Bill Clinton's image and they're kicking and screaming to stay that party despite the public hating it.

    You're saying Trump's going to win regardless.

    Sounds right tbh.

    Bernie could call himself a communist and the rubes would still hate him less than the moderate Democrats’ beloved Hillary Clinton.

    Its pretty safe to say after 2016 that nominating a center right wing corporatist as the Dem candidate does all in terms of winning rube support.
