Here’s What’s Really Wrong With What Bernie Sanders Said on “Morning Joe”

Scarborough: “Can the democratic party be more open to candidates who are not rigidly pro-choice, who are not rigidly pro-gun control?”

Sanders: “The answer, I think, is yes.”

I was already angry after I heard that he said that, but then he followed it up with this:

“What democrats have gotta to do is come into those states and not be Republican-lite but have the guts to take on the big money interests. If they do that I believe other things will fall into place.”

I’ve been saying that Sanders is a sexist from the very beginning. It started with an innocent joke about my desire to write a paper about the phallic symbolism of him waving his finger in Hillary Clinton’s face during every debate (really putting my Women’s Studies degree to use here, folks). But it evolved into something altogether different.
