Former Goldwater Republican Hillary Clinton is running as a Democrat.
Former Democrat Donald Trump is running as a Republican.

Bernie Sanders, an Independent Democratic Socialist, is running as a Democrat.
And now Joe Scarborough is my new BFF.

It must be climate change, because Hell has finally frozen over.
In this video clip (below) from a show aired right after the Democratic Primary in Wyoming, MSNBC calls out the Democratic party's rigged system, noting that in spite of the fact that Sanders won the Wyoming primary by a "yuge" margin of 12%, Hillary Clinton received more delegates:
Sanders: 55.7% = 7 Delegates

Clinton: 44.3% = 11 Delegates

Do the math. This is a pattern that is playing out in many of the Democratic primaries.
All four Superdelegates had pre-pledged their support to Hillary last year, well before voters had the opportunity to make their preferences known. Now, according to WyoFile, "Some Wyoming Democrats want the party's four superdelegates to ditch their publicly-stated pledge of support for Hillary Clinton to more accurately represent the outcome of the party's April 9 caucus."

Scarborough, a Republican and former U.S. Representative, said, "This same party tells voters to go straight to hell when they select somebody by 12 percentage points, and end up letting the other candidate, who lost by 12 percentage points, win the most delegates " THAT, by definition, is voter disenfranchisement, " noting that " It is a system rigged in favor of the rich and the powerful and the politically connected."
I just might have fallen in love with him at that moment.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "Why does the Democratic party even have voting booths? ... There's absolutely no reason any of those people voted, in any of those states, right? Please, someone tell me."
I'll give you a hint, Mika (and you can be my new BFF, too.) It might have something to do with Little Debbie, the wicked witch of the Dems.
