Last week, during a town hall event on Fox News, Socialist Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was asked if he thought rapists and murderers should be allowed to vote? Bernie responded: “Good question. In my state, I recently researched this. It turns out that in our Constitution in the state of Vermont for hundreds of years everybody has the right to vote, okay?” Sanders said. “I think you make this division— if somebody does something terrible, they’re a rapist or a murderer we send them away. Sometimes we send them away for life, but I also think that integral to who we are as Americans no matter what kind of terrible things you did, you’re paying the price. Maybe you’re in jail for the rest of your life, but you have the right to vote.”
Yesterday, during a CNN town hall broadcast, Bernie Sanders was asked by CNN host Chris Cuomo, if he believes the Boston Marathon terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who killed three people, maimed and injured 264 others, should have the right to vote in our elections? Sanders began flinging his arms wildly as he attempted to defend his position, asking if you believe in “democracy,” and “if you do,” Sanders told them, “we have to expand that democracy.” Sanders went on to say he believes every person has a right to vote regardless of the crimes they’ve committed against humanity.

Social media exploded with responses to Sanders disgusting views on terrorists voting in America. This CEO’s response was fairly representative of the general population’s reaction to Sanders and Democrat Senator Kamala Harris, who had a similar response. Alexander Bruesewitz asked, “What the hell is wrong with these people!?”

NewsMax’s John Cardillo slammed Bernie Sanders for his remarks.

@BernieSanders and @KamalaHarris want savages like Tsarnaev to be able to vote from death row.

But it was The View’s Meghan McCain who went off over Senator Bernie Sanders response to the question about terrorists being able to vote from prison.
During today’s segment of The View, Meghan expressed her anger and frustration over the fact that Sanders would make such a reprehensible statement.
“I was upset about it because—if Democrats want to drag everybody this far left, this is why people like me are so upset and so disenfranchised with how extreme this is. It’s not hard to say the Boston terrorist was a psycho lunatic who is a threat not only to national security but shouldn’t be allowed the right to vote in any election!”
The other hosts attempted to play cover for another Democrat presidential hopeful, Kamala Harris (D-CA), who didn’t say terrorists should have a right to vote, but instead, said, “we should have a conversation” about the issue.”
It was then that McCain became incensed, shouting, “Does anyone think a terrorist should have a right to vote?!”
Whoopi Goldberg attempted to explain that if a terrorist serves his time in prison, he should be able to vote once he is released. McCain blew up, explaining that members of her family and Abbey Huntsman’s family fought terrorists overseas, so we didn’t have to experience the kind of hell the Tsarnaev brothers wreaked on Americans at the Boston Marathon. Whoopi was not impressed.
