The Socialist bubble has been popped. This is going to shock all of his supporters, but the rest of America had to have seen this coming.
So much for the Sanders revolution against Wall Street and the bankers.
On Friday, Sanders told MSNBC he will vote for Hillary Clinton in November.
“The issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can do to defeat Donald Trump. I think Trump, in so many ways, would be a disaster for this country if he were elected,” he said.
Hillary Clinton is a creature of Wall Street, the financial class and the global elite. Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and JP Morgan have consistently backed her. Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, the great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, is a Clinton fan. JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon is a regular Clinton donor. In 2008, he donated the maximum allowable amount to the Clinton campaign.
Clinton has taken nearly $22 million from investment bank donors. She has also raked in substantial cash delivering speeches on Wall Street. Goldman Sachs alone paid her $675,000.
”Can you really reform Wall Street when they are spending millions and millions of dollars on campaign contributions, and when they are providing speaker fees to individuals?” Sanders asked during a debate.
By supporting Clinton, Sanders has betrayed his progressive base and shot his revolution full of holes. All that remains now is an official endorsement of his former rival and a plea to his supporters to vote for Clinton in an effort to beat Trump in November.
