‘Take some basic economics’: Bernie explains his ‘ridiculous’ vision of banking

You have to constantly double-check the verification symbol on @BernieSanders’ account to ensure that tweets like this aren’t being made by a parody account. But rest assured, this one is genuinely Bernie.

A presidential candidate in a major party says banking shouldn’t be about making money. This dangerous, anti-capitalist comment should remove him from the nomination process and presidential race. Instead, it further fires up his sycophantic supporters.

Fortunately, many understand the economy well enough to know that such a proposal is certifiably insane.

Bernie Sanders’ free college will liberate youth from farms

While President Obama occasionally remembers that he shot a video on Air Force One promising two free years of community college to anyone willing to work for it, Bernie Sanders has been promising a free college education for everyone since the beginning of the campaign. That plan could be problematic, though. Sanders wants to free students from working in factories and on farms, but what if an ambitious millennial would like to study agricultural science?

At Thursday night’s debate in Wisconsin, Sanders sounded as if his free college plan was meant to free the population from the “massive despair”of manual labor.

It could be worse; you could be working at McDonald’s.

Dancing Sanders supporter feeling the Bern is ‘amazeballs’

Remember the outrage in September when candidate Donald Trumpdidn’t correct a rally attendee whoclaimed that President Obama was a Muslim? Trump, as always, resisted explaining or apologizing,instead tweeting:

By the media’s standard, we’d like to know if Bernie Sanders would care to defendthis dance performed at his rally or if he remained silent. And isn’t Lena Dunham stumping for Hillary?

The dancer is one thing, but we’re more curious about the woman who seems to be wearing large sunglasses indoors along with asurgical mask. A spy from Hillary’s camp?

We’re feeling something, and it’s uncomfortable and a little frightening.

But what about that other woman? Lady Gaga?

One thing’s for sure: to his supporters, #BernieIsBae.
