Bernie Sanders just released a list of all the billionaires and plutocrats who can’t hide their hatred for him. The “anti-endorsements” underscore his campaign’s core message: it’s the oligarchs versus the rest of us.

Earlier this week, the Bernie Sanders campaign debuted a webpage quoting condemnations from twelve “anti-endorsers” that included the following words from right-wing plutocrat Haim Saban:

'We love all 23 candidates. No, minus one. I profoundly dislike Bernie Sanders. He thinks every billionaire is a crook. He calls us “the billionaire class.” And he attacks us indiscriminately.'

...Sanders, in contrast to Biden, isn’t just rejecting this phony politics of unity: he’s calling out his foes by name and openly broadcasting their hatred for his candidacy and the vision of equality it represents.

It’s hard to think of a better endorsement than that.

I trust not everyone here has lost their sense of humor. In fact, I suspect this is how many folks actually view Bernie click here

P.S. Dana is fair to everyone and funny as hell; If you haven't seen Dana Carvey: Straight While Male, 60, a Netflix original click here, I recommend you do. We clearly need a break from the "news" on a regular basis.

Love this quote from the article:

"It's difficult to imagine even an actual endorsement so effectively boosting the Sanders's core message. A loathsome oligarch (and Democratic mega donor, no less) whining about being called a billionaire while singling out the only candidate that genuinely makes him nervous? The ads practically write themselves."
