The socialist public servant millionaire bestselling author with three homes is on the presidential campaign trail doing his thing, this time with some heavy criticism for a system that allows this to happen:
Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks in Greenville, SC: "For the last 40 years in this country as you all know, there has been a massive redistribution of wealth in the United States. The problem is it's gone in the wrong direction. It's gone from working families to the top 1%." pic.twitter.com/fpmY55f3s5

Sanders’ book helped go towards earning him multiple years of making seven figures (but don’t you dare call it the capitalist “American dream”!). But since Bernie said his book haul wasn’t part of the “American dream,” perhaps he’s excepted himself from his own criticisms of the 1 percent.
Bernie should hold up the check he got for the book he wrote to demonstrate what he's talking about.

That would be a helpful visual!
Unless you write a book. Right Bernie? He is so thinned skin on this topic.

He is the 1%.

Perhaps soon Sanders will publish and sell another book to his working-class supporters explaining to them how the 1 percenters are taking their money.
