Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the United Kingdom’s Labour Party and also a raging anti-Semite, has been making some pals on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Corbyn in April and alleges she shared her “concerns about how the Labour Party is perceived in terms of anti-Semitism,” having some experience with that perception in her own party.
Corbyn also shared a phone call with Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in February and they bonded over their desire to take on the billionaires. No mention if Ocasio-Cortez happened to mention Corbyn’s anti-Semitism.
We supposed socialists will forgive each other for anything, and Mediaite noted that a senior political adviser to Bernie Sanders (and a former adviser to the Women’s March) posted an animated GIF showing Corbyn dancing on Margaret Thatcher’s grave.

Yeah, so much fun.
This is the product of a deeply diseased mind.
(You know . . . a socialist.)

You're exactly the kind of person I'd expect a Bernie advisor to be. pic.twitter.com/8PczVz6pu3

Who are these people Sanders has surrounded himself with?
— Amy Shaw (@AYS1960) May 27, 2019
Reflections of himself. Remember that.

Sanders is really recruiting top tier political advisors, who apparently think that a party getting decimated in all its normally safest seats is a sign of strength.

Hi @WaywardWinifred: Corbyn can't be the next prime minister of England, firstly because England doesn't have a prime minister; but more importantly because this is how well Labour is doing under Corbyn. Do you see the red? That's the constituencies Labour won. pic.twitter.com/UjIPiAuvRR

“PM of England” ?
— Jeffrey Royer (@JeffreyRoyer) May 27, 2019
1) There is no such post as "Prime Minister of England"
2) Labour were slaughtered in the EU elections.
In all other respects, spot on.

His party has been smashed two elections in a row, putting off huge swathes of the electorate. I don't know how you came to the conclusion that he'd win the next GE.

It is amazing to me how you Bernie folks are so committed to re-electing Trump.

This is amazing

For one thing, the Conservative Party is still in power. Without a snap election, they aren't going anywhere. They'll pick their new leader by the end of July and that person will be the next PM.

Are you high?

Let us repeat: senior political adviser to Bernie Sanders.

This is a bad tweet. Here for the ratio.

I'd think this was ironic but…..
— Sue Horsley (@SueHorsley7) May 27, 2019
A "political advisor" who knows nothing about politics.
1. England is part of the UK. It doesn't have a PM of its own
2. Corbyn can't be PM while his party isn't in government
3. Europe is not the UK European elections do not elect the UK PM
4. That GIF is tasteless and offensive
— Carmine de Carabas (@CarmineCarabas) May 27, 2019
I am no fan of Thatcher but this is absolutely pathetic and offensive and probably very wrong. Sanders campaign is a faint shadow of the campaign I supported in early 2016.

Not sure where to start with so much ignorance.

Great hire, Bernie.
