When Twitchy reported that Bernie Sanders fans had chosen to protest Hillary Clinton’s $33,400 a plate dinner with George Clooney by throwing loose change and Monopoly money at her motorcade, video of the demonstration never, ever suggested to us that her opponents were treating Clinton like a pole dancer. That’s why there’s MSNBC, apparently.
Joy Reid rolled video of the protest over the weekend and was shocked at “people throwing dollar bills as if in a strip club,” with the exception that the “stripper” was locked up tight in a lengthy motorcade of black SUVs with blacked out windows. Still, the protest came just a week after Bernie Sanders surrogate Dr. Paul Song managed to get the #DemocraticWhores hashtag trending in Clinton’s honor.

I had the same reaction as @JoyAnnReid to the money-throwing thing. Coming just after the Dem whore debacle, it was…tone deaf.

Thanks to Bernie and people like Paul Song calling Hillary a whore, Berniebots are now throwing money at her like shes a common stripper!

No one said she was common.
You throw money at Hillary's car like she's a stripper and you wonder why Dr Song felt comfortable using the word "whore"?

Throwing one dollar bills at Hillary Clinton. Like she's a stripper? Wait until my #HillaryMen DM hears about this…

I expected folks calling Hillary a whore/stripper; thought it would be the Trump/Cruz wing of the GOP, but no – it's the Bernie/Nader wing.

Today's episode of "The Ben Shapiro Show" is out — why nobody would throw money at Hillary like a stripper. https://t.co/4tjvbH5WHX

@RightonCarl No one would throw stripper dollars at Hillary. You have to earn those. They played "You're in the money" and it was monopoly $

@thejoshuablog Hillary supporters somehow compare her to a stripper then get all wound up over the idea of it. Best case of fauxoutrage yet!

Sanders quickly distanced himself from Song after his “corporate Democratic whores” comment.
Dr. Song's comment was inappropriate and insensitive. There's no room for language like that in our political discourse.
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) April 14, 2016
Will he issue a tweet asking his supporters not to treat his opponent like a pole dancer? Maybe his campaign is still working on the wording.
For his part, George Clooney is admittedly upset and disgusted — with himself, for raising so much money for Clinton.
George Clooney & Hillary Clinton charged $350K just to sit with them and man are they are upset about it https://t.co/2zcqMMavCO
