Father’s Day might not be so great for the Sanders family…
Senator Bernie Sanders refuses to endorse his son Levi Sanders who is running for a U.S. House seat in New Hampshire. Sanders has a reputation for being stingy with political endorsements but THIS IS HIS SON! Levi Sanders is running on a platform that’s almost identical to his father’s but his father says, “He’s on his own”. Isn’t it ironic that the man who wants to shower everyone with freebies from the government won’t even show his son with an endorsement….STINGY SOCIALISTS!
LIKE FATHER…LIKE SON:
Levi has adopted the same policies his dad ran on in 2016: Tuition-free college and health care for everyone…at the taxpayer’s expense, of course!
Levi Sanders has gone quiet on the issue of receiving his father’s endorsement but had previously joked that rather than being Bernie Sanders’ son, he is the son of the fourth cousin of Larry David, the co-creator of “Seinfeld” who has portrayed Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live.”
BERNIE’S HISTORY OF STINGY POLITICAL ENDORSEMENTS:
Fox News reports:
In the mid-1980s, for example, Sanders declined to do more to aid what has evolved into Vermont’s Progressive Party. Then last winter he declined to help his stepdaughter, Carina Driscoll, run for the mayor’s office in Burlington, Vt., which Sanders himself once held.
“This is a fancy dance that Bernie has done, but it’s not recommended for anyone else,” said Garrison Nelson, a University of Vermont political science professor emeritus. “This is a testament to Bernie’s uniqueness as a political actor.”
