Sen. Bernie Sanders thought it would be a good idea to try to defend his precious socialism and attack Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney by simply bringing up the name of her father.
Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked "the fraud of socialism." Really? I wasn't aware that it was "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and got us into a horrific war that we should never have started.

And oh did he get a response.
Yes, @SenSanders, son of Eli Sanders, socialism is a fraud. It steals power from the people & gives it to the government, crushes human freedom & initiative & devastates economies (ask the Venezuelans). BTW – Your Dick Cheney history is as defective as your economic policy. ?? https://t.co/8xjOVE3Tpu

Oh hell yes https://t.co/GQvpXTgYiO
