Are we at Twitchy being dismissive of Bernie Sanders supporters when we call them Bernie Bros in our headlines? Yes, of course: they support an elderly socialist and deserve to be mocked for it.
Former Michigan governor and current CNN senior contributor (is there any former Democrat politician who isn’t a CNN contributor?) Jennifer Granholm apparently used the term Bernie Bros on the air Saturday and thanked all of those who educated her on the error of her ways.
I apologize to all – I used the term #BernieBros on air. My mistake; thanks for educating me about the sensitivity. Will not use it again.

How can CNN keep these hateful people on the air?

Oh good grief, stop apologizing. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️

Wait. What?! There’s a sensitivity around the term “Bernie Bros” now?!?!
Oh, FFS! 🙄🙄🙄

Can someone fill me in on why that term is bad? https://t.co/LObFRMhQgu

This will not do. Straight to the Reeducation Camp for you, Jennifer.

You've narrowly escaped the reeducation camps… this time. 🙄

Bernie Bros is the appropriate term to use. #NeverBernie

Oh please. They're awful. They need to be called out. Bullies.

Bernie Bros are sensitive. Gotta watch it with their delicate sensibilities. Thanks for allowing grown men not to cry and spiral downward into depression.

Well they should stop being Bernie Bros then and we won’t have to use the term.

Is this serious?
— Jenny (@JCEdmund) February 29, 2020
I thought this is a generic term. Like MAGA.

The sensitivity appears to be that they are sensitive?
— JeSuisAubrey (@NotBruinOregon) March 1, 2020
Their sensitivity is not your problem

Why not? Are you really going to let a bunch of bullies take your free speech like that?

I prefer the term lunatics, but to each their own.

Just call them Berners. That takes care of all the fragility and you can still talk about their incredibly horrible behavior on and offline.

I think the accepted term is #BernieBroshevik

Congrats on seizing this opportunity to humiliate yourself needlessly.

Next thing you know Granholm will have a Bernie Bros in her front yard at 11 p.m. shining lights though her windows and demanding an apology through a bullhorn.
