Socialists want everyone to believe they’re looking out for the little guy—except when it comes to the pampered, multi-millionaire Democrat presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (VT), who’s never held a real job outside of politics in his grumpy life.
When the cranky 78-year-old Democrat presidential candidate who owns three homes and has a net worth of around $3 million, travels around the country promoting free stuff, courtesy of the American taxpayer, he’s not just staying in a room with a double bed at the Days Inn—Bernie Sanders is very specific about where he stays. The temperature and size of the room must meet his needs, and he’s very specific about the type of tea that must be stocked in the room upon his arrival.
Curiously, one of the demands of the “environmentally friendly” candidate is to send someone ahead to check the toilets in advance of his stay. Apparently, Bernie doesn’t want anything to do with environmentally friendly slow flushing toilets—those are for the commoners.
Like a typical socialist holding a government position, Bernie wants everyone else to sacrifice for the common good, while Bernie’s not willing to make any sacrifices at all when it comes to his personal comfort.
According to the Daily Mail – Senator Bernie Sanders likes his hotel rooms cold and does not like slow flushing toilets, according to a leaked tour rider from his 2020 presidential campaign.
Referred to as the ‘Senator Comfort Memo,’ the document offers specific arrangements that need to be met for Sanders’ hotels, food, drink, family and staff.
Marked ‘confidential: for campaign staff use only, not for circulation,’ the two-page memo is dated April 10, 2019, and was first reported Wednesday.
Sanders – called ‘SBS’ in the document – prefers to be put in a non-smoking room that offers ample space so that the senator can ‘meet with staff in a comfortable setting.’
While the memo does declare that upgrades to a large suite should be avoided ‘as much as possible,’ SBS does like to utilize small junior suites.
In the event that Bernie is campaigning in a rural city, Sanders has asked to just have a room with a king-size bed.
Sanders requests that rooms have a down comforter or at least one extra blanket and also asks that they come stocked with bathtubs if possible.
Desiring to exist in nippy conditions, the memo states that SBS needs a fan in the room if the room’s thermostat does not go below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
‘Always test, set, and run thermostat before arrival,’ the memo states in all caps.
Bernie requests that his accommodations provide the following each day: green tea with honey (saving any excess honey packets), English breakfast tea, a low sugar drink, one small bottle of red Gatorade, one bottle of Smart water, clementines and a small can of unsalted cashews/walnuts/almonds.
What do you think? Is it okay for Bernie to expect to be treated like a king while he travels around lecturing Americans on how they need to sacrifice for the common good? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.
