Bernie Sanders was and still is being scammed by the DNC! Donna Brazille revealed all in her book about how Sanders was scammed by the DNC during the presidential primary. Ironically missing in her recent interviews about the book is the fact that Crazy Bernie is still being scammed to this day by the DNC. How do I know? That pesky thing called the Internet that Al Gore claimed to have created and the thing that drives the left hysterical – Twitter.
The Senate passed the tax reform bill President Trump has been a staunch proponent of early Saturday morning. I’m surprised 911 wasn’t called to send ambulances to tend to Democratic Senators that ran over each other rushing out of the chamber to get to television cameras and their Twitter accounts. In the preceding day and after the tax bill passed numerous Senators or their communication staff scrambled to tweet how evil and abominable the Republican tax plan will be for Americans. One thing caught my eye in all most all these tweets except a very few, namely Bernie Sander’s tweet. It appears that on Friday, December 1 the Democratic National Committee sent an email directive too all Democrat Senators, liberal activists, celebrities and others offering talking points and hash tags to use with their tweets and Facebook posts. It appears that two hash tags were promoted: “#taxscambill and #goptaxscam. Many Democrat law makers and others started sending out tweets using those two hash tags on December 1 and continued for a couple days.
Sample of Democrat law makers and others who sent out tweets using #goptaxscam: Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Bob Menendez, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Ed Markey, Sen. Tom Udall, Rep. Frederica Wilson, Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Senate Democrats twitter account, Rep. Jacky Rosen, Rep. Joe Crowley, Rep. Eric Swalwell, Rep. Ted Lieu, PolarbearsAreCool twitter account, and many other Democrat law makers.
Sample of Democrat law makers and others who sent out tweets using #taxscambill: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Martin Heinrich, Palmer Report, Scott Dworkin, Patton Oswalt (actor), Project Bernie twitter account, Proud Nasty Woman twitter account, and many others.
Sample of Democrat law makers and others who did not send out tweets using either hash tag: Sen. Bernie Sanders and Donald J. Trump, Jr.
On December 1, at 6:45 pm the day before the tax bill passed, Bernie Sanders released a tweet:
It noticeably is without any of the prescribed DNC hash tags that appear in many other Democrat and liberal tweets. Hmmm….Is the DNC still scamming Crazy Bernie? Did they leave him off their email list? A day or two after the tax bill passed, Sen. Sanders did release a few tweets using one of the DNC prescribed hash tags. But definitely makes me wonder why so late to the game?
It appears President Trump isn’t the only Trump that has a mastery of Twitter. Donald J. Trump, Jr. responded to Sen. Sanders’ tweet with the following critique:
I believe Trump, Jr. could have taken his tweet a bit farther or sent a follow up tweet: “Bernie: How much did your wife make/loot from Burlington College as its president when the college went bankrupt?”
