Sanders Claims American People Have Been Sold Out

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated President Trump “sold the American people out” during the meeting with Vladimir Putin.

Partial transcript as follows:

MARGARET BRENNAN: Senator Sanders, Vladimir Putin was invited to the White House this fall. Do you think it should be withdrawn?

SANDERS: Look, the truth is it’s hard to comment on anything that Trump says because he could change his mind tomorrow. But I will tell you that I was absolutely outraged by his behavior in Helsinki, where he really sold the American people out. And it makes me think that either Trump doesn’t understand what Russia has done, not only to our elections, but to cyber-attacks against all parts of our infrastructure, either he doesn’t understand it, or perhaps he is being blackmailed by Russia because they may have compromising information about him or perhaps also, you have a president who really does have strong authoritarian tendencies and maybe he admires the kind of government that Putin is running in Russia. And I think all of that is a disgrace and a disservice to the American people. And we have got to make sure that Russia does not interfere, not only in our elections, but in other aspects of our lives.

BRENNAN: Well picking up on that note, because there is some responsibility here in both parties to protect themselves. It was one of your campaign staffers who went to the Clinton campaign and Obama administration to say there was concerns, or suspicions here, of Russians spreading anti-Clinton messages. How do you protect yourself in the next race against something like that happening?

SANDERS: Well Margaret, Margaret that’s a great question and I don’t think anyone knows all of the answers, but one thing we do know. Is that we need a president who is going to do everything to work with statewide officials all over this country to make sure that when people cast a vote in November that vote is going to count. Congress has allocated money to beef up and strengthen the protection of our electoral system. The president has got to be aggressive in implementing that. We have a lot of work to do, but the integrity of American democracy is at stake. And we have got to do everything that we can to protect the integrity of our election.

BRENNAN: Senator Sanders and Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thank you so much for joining us in this exciting joint interview. Good to speak to you both. We’ll be back in a moment.

    Sanders isn’t the president. What happened to the investigation of his wife?

  • Lonewolf

    Bernie Sanders, you’re the one that sold out America, with your lies.
    You would even sell out your family. You and the WICKED WITCH OF THE EAST Clinton and OBOZO THE CLOWN ARE GUILTY ON SELLING OUT AMERICA. Y’ALL ARE WORTHLESS AS S–T

  • Tuxedo_Plowboy

    Sanders has no room to talk. This Marxist moron has actually been actively trying to take down this nation as founded, for his entire career. His crazy talk just shows how evil these people are, as they will stop at nothing to take over this country.

  • Medic RN

    Sold out? No Bernie. Just you….when you became a socialist.
    78 thousand American sons died while fighting socialism in Vietnam. Now, your party has more blood on its hands than Hitler. Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Stalin. You’re too stupid to be ashamed.

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    Sanders an avowed socialists needs to be voted out of office. Socialism, does not will, did not work for the Pilgrims, Samuel Coleridge, the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, and not Nicaragua. Any body dumb enough to believe these countries were successes?

  • Bernie

    What’s this putz taking about?
    Sanders should be happy Trump “sold out”.
    Isn’t it Sanders and the new kid on the block Cortez, that wants us to be more like Russia?
    It’s so easy making the left-wing loons look foolish!

    Dear old Bernie never had a regular job till he was 47 and got a political office. His wife ran the college she was running into the ground with fraudulent loans. He came out of “losing” the 2016 election with 2 multi million$$ homes and plenty of pocket $$$$. Yep Bernie… you seem to know how to live well on other peoples $$ they earned.

  • Ron Long

    Didn’t this idiot honeymoon in Moscow? I would be willing to bet that this lazy bastard doesn’t even wipe his own ass after taking a dump. Keep talking Bernie you are driving people away from the Democrat Socialists by the droves.

  • Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr.

    The man is nothing more than a bad joke. How the people of Vermont could continue voting for him is dumbfounding. They can’t be that many stupid people in Vermont. I have to keep believing that, or else I would go insane. He has leached off of the taxpayers for so long, it’s become an entitlement to him. And I guess you could even throw in his crooked wife. I know I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I figured him out years ago. I’d like to know how much of his wealth he’s willing to give up to support illegal leeches crossing the border.

    That mindless old fool is ”outraged”? I wonder if he was outraged at the hot mike comment by Obama, who, along with Hilary Clinton sold us out to the Russians by doing the Uranium One deal and the they sent literally Billions of dollars to Iran in support of their terrorist activities and their threats and promise to attack us and our Allies with nuclear weapons. .

  • peter

    American people have been sold out by the liberals, democrats and socialists who have ditched them for decades and their support of illegals and MS-13 gang members and the abolishment of ICE is total proof!

  • survivor33

    Sanders is still in a fog thinking he should be president just like Clinton. Both have mental problems with their ego’s. No one cares what they say or what they do…they are NOT IMPORTANT.

  • PAPI, PAPI CHULO

    SANDIE: U R SEW FULL OF CRAP, U DON’T MAKE SENSE, U DUM IDIOT. WHAT DO YOU MEAN WITH SO MANY MAYBES. LOL!!!! MAYBE DIS, MAYBE DAT. SHOW SOME PROOF, U R FULL OF SHEET. U R A BRAINLESS HILLBILLY COMMIE.

  • Patrick Feeney

    Senility Sanders!

  • Jim Wagenmann

    Sanders sold out America when he adopted communism in the 1960’s and made friends with Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi Jane.
    He is still selling out America by pushing communism when he knows the only people who benefit in that system are the people like him who think they are the elites.

  • Doris Will

    Bernie already sold out the working class, with his I “T SHOULD BE FREE.” Campaign. This time around Bernie and Cortez can knock each other off the stage everything away FREE.

  • kassa1

    Bernie Sanders has been nothing but a deadbeat all his life living off the backs of others. Everybody’s getting free stuff then why should everybody work. Someone’s got to put the cart,And when the cards are overloaded or breaks down in the wagon breaks down. If everything’s free why should anybody work? All the stupid kids going to college Children listening to these communist professors, will find out that when they get their job most of the money they make you be going to the Texas pays for the free stuff, for those who think someone owes them a living as there is nothing for me nothing and there is no Santa Claus and the tax pair is the government.

  • Tom Flores

    Hey Bernie how about Venezuela? Socialism is working great for them btw how do you like your rat prepared? How about some dog stew? Great wages $1.00 per month!
