Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) the Socialist-Democrat candidate for President in 2020, was utterly humiliated tonight, during his town hall appearance on Fox News. The Socialist US Senator who owns three homes and was just recently outed as a millionaire has a difficult time explaining himself to the Fox News hosts during his town hall tonight.

During their town hall broadcast with Socialist Bernie Sanders, with Fox News hosts, Bret Bair, and Martha MacCallum, Bair asked the millionaire US Senator a question that revealed his embarrassing hypocrisy. With Fox News host Martha MacCallum by his side, Bair asked Senator Sanders, “Your taxes do show that you’re a millionaire. You did make a million 2016 and in 2017.”  Bair continued, “But your marginal tax rate 26% because of Donald Trump’s tax cuts. So, why not say, I’m leading this revolution, I’m not gonna take those?”

Sanders, who appeared to be stunned that Bair would call him out on his hypocrisy replied: “Pfft…come on…I am, I paid the taxes that I owe…why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes.”

Sanders quickly deflected and turned to Donald Trump. “And by the way, why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him what he pays in taxes?” Bair said he would— then continued by reminding Bernie Sanders that he spends an awful lot of time vilifying millionaires, while he himself is a millionaire. Bernie attempted to deflect again by talking about the shrinking middle class. Again, the Fox News host embarrassed Sanders by calling him out for only giving 3.4% of his vast wealth to charity. Sanders appeared to be unfazed by being called out for his miserly contributions to charity, saying, “My wife and I do give money to charity.  And we’re proud to do what we did…You’re quite right. The Gates Foundation does a phenomenal job. We do what we do…” Which is only 3.4% of his vast income, for anyone who missed it. Proving once again, that those who promote socialism and spreading the wealth around, are usually those who are least likely to voluntarily give up their piece of the pie.

Watch.

Bernie also got called out on the money he made selling his book. Bair asked Sanders, “When you wrote the book and made the money, isn’t that the definition of capitalism and the American dream?” Bernie Sanders replied, “No!”

His response was perfect, as he explained that because he has a college degree and has been a lifetime public servant, his vast accumulation of wealth is justified.
