To hear Bernie Sanders speak, you would think he is only keeping enough to get by and giving everything else to the needy… that is far from the truth, though.
After what can only be described as an epic fail Town Hall meeting, former Hillary aide Jess McIntosh slammed Sanders, saying, “His message is capitalist!”
Bernie the Hypocrite
The releasing of his tax forms has created an epic nightmare for Sanders.
It revealed two things:
1 – He is a millionaire
2 – He gives very little away to charity
Sanders has long railed against millionaires and billionaires
His tune has slightly changed in recent years to rail against multi-millionaires and billionaires.
The fact that he made a couple of million in profit off his book post-2016 presidential election may have something to do with that.
Secondly, Bernie keeps just about every penny he makes.
His tax returns revealed that he gives a mere 3.4 percent of his income to charity.
That is probably less than most middle-class Americans give.
Point being, while Bernie preaches he wants the rich to give back, he does not even come close to meeting his own standard.
If Sanders wanted credibility, the profits of his book could have gone to charity or to pay for the healthcare costs of some lucky families in his home state.
Instead, the money went right into his bank account.
Bernie supplied a product that people wanted, and he got rich off it.
That is, by definition, capitalism, the very thing he wants to end in this country.
McIntosh stated, “He’s literally saying ‘I made a product the market wanted, and I got rich off it, and you can do that too.’”
Shockingly, several panelists on CNN agreed with McIntosh.
Erin Burnett stated, “The problem is when you’re Bernie Sanders and you rail against people paying their fair share, and you don’t have the huge charitable donations, and you’re not donating money to the IRS, you are a hypocrite.”
Sanders has been very combative about the money he made writing his book.
He recently stated, “If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I’m sorry, I’m not going to do it.”
Hey Bernie, nobody is asking you to apologize, we just want the money you made for writing it!
