Bernie is a millionaire So are 50% of people his age, according to David Pakman. (correction. The average worth of people 75 is about $850,000) And Bernie did it through sales of a $27 book, rather than by taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from the most powerful corporations, as Hillary did.
The news is out. Bernie Sanders is a millionaire. There are plenty of detractors-- conservatives and their cousins-- hillbot former Hillary supporters. They're saying that he is no longer one of us and suggesting he is a hypocrite for attacking wealth inequality.

This a total crock and the kind of toxic garbage spewed by fake progressives, like Center For Amerian Progress, founded by former Hillary campaign manager, John Podesta. Ironically, it's not very different from what we'd expect from a Fox News contributor.

Considering that Bernie is the most popular politician in the world and that he had a very successful book, it would be difficult not to become a millionaire.
In fact, I love it that Bernie became a millionaire because, like his campaign, hundreds of thousands of people invested in buying his book-- which makes him a bottom-up millionaire. And it is no surprise that the retail price for the hardcover edition of the book was $27. My hope is that Bernie will set an example for how a bottom-up, for the people millionaire acts.
