It looks like Joe Biden is going to manage to brush off all the hair-sniffing and neck-nuzzling complaints from those #MeToo types, and he’ll probably jump into the race next week, where he’ll find himself neck-and-neck with Bernie Sanders. Two rich old white men it is!
As Twitchy reported, Sanders recently told an audience that if you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire too. As we also reported, liberal ThinkProgress put out a hit video on YouTube called “Bernie’s millionaire problem,” which led an NBC News reporter to admit that the word millionaire does have a “general ickiness” about it.
It turns out Sanders’ millionaire problem is a real thing and it’s following him around on the campaign trail:

It’s not a crime to run a successful business…. https://t.co/gFes3OAVJu

And there’s nothing “icky” about the word “millionaire” either. But Sanders is not supposed to be a millionaire socialist with three homes.
Being rich is fine. Being a hypocrite less so.

He doth protest too much.

That wasn’t the crime #Bernie. It was holding back the amount of money that you made from your book. Is that why you are holding back your taxes?

*and then not redistributing the money like I demand everyone else do

He can’t complain about suffering as a result of a climate he helped create. This is one of the many reasons I’m less than enthusiastic about possibly having to vote for Bernie.

Next up: Sanders joking that of course he took every possible tax break and shelter, and didn’t pay tax, but he’ll change those laws. 🙄

Not a crime & Bernie can give it all away if he likes – I doubt he will. Just leave MY money alone.

But evidently it's a crime to be a successful business owner, punished by an almost 90% tax in the Bernie system
— William (@LastWordWilliam) April 13, 2019
It isn't a crime. Being squirrelly about your tax returns since 2016 does make people suspicious of you, though.

How many were sold on Amazon? Your favorite target? Agreed it’s not a crime – stop treating it like it is

Except when you sell it on amazon-who you have been attacking for years. #Berniethehypocrite

A book despicably marketed and sold by suffering, underpaid book store and Amazon workers.

'You didn't write that book Bernie. Somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere. Somebody helped to create this American system that we have. If there's a book with your name on it, you didn’t write that. Somebody else made that happen.'

It's funny how convenient capitalism can be to a socialist when there's money to be made.

@SenSanders just show us your taxes. You aren't cute. You aren't honest. You aren't a Democrat. You haven't gotten anything done in all your years in the Senate. I see no reason to vote for you. Didn't last time either

Sit down old man, you’re the 1% and always have been
— bobbied100 (@bobbied100) April 13, 2019
It’s not a crime. But, you not revealing your taxes make it seem like you think it is… 🤔 Who else do we know who hides skeletons in their taxes and has promised for years to release them, while swearing repeatedly that there’s nothing in them?

Except you were the person railing against the creation of millionaires for five decades. You were the person saying this very thing. That millionaires are evil. No one but you.
— 🏳️🌈Lisa Talmadge 🔥🏳️🌈 (@LisaTalmadge) April 13, 2019
It’s all about taking advantage of your position in the Senate; everyone profits from being a politician. However, a true socialist like @BernieSanders donates 100% back to a government program and lives a spartan existence.
— RAWHIDE0302🇺🇸 (@RAAFROMTEXAS) April 13, 2019
If you will notice Grandpa Sanders has changed his rhetoric from “millionaires and billionaires to just “billionaires now. He is a total fraud and most everyone knows it.

If all of those poor Venezuelans wrote bestsellers they wouldn’t be eating out of garbage trucks now, would they?
