Bernie Sanders has truly gone off the rails if he believes anyone takes him seriously at this point.
Senate’s only openly socialist lawmaker, Bernie makes a habit of pretending to care about an abstract working class in America that happens to care about his far-left policies. This fantastical group of disgruntled left-wing workers serves as an alternate reality for America’s progressive lawmakers and a convenient scapegoat for their outlandish social spending policies.
It’s a tale as old as time, or at least as old as Bernie Sanders: Claim to be fighting for an invisible working class who just so happens to be passionate about left-wing politics even though they simply don’t exist anywhere in the U.S. outside of university campuses.
This creates a perfect villain for Bernie and other far-left lawmakers as they can constantly direct their rage at the “billionaire” — or any lawmaker who gets in the way of their massive social spending measures.
Such was the case over the weekend when Sen. Sanders unloaded on his colleagues Sens. Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema for refusing to support Biden’s spending measures amid a period of record-high inflation.
Bernie’s consternation days after Manchin’s reported reversal on tax and climate policies Democrats hoped to pass.
“He has sabotaged the president’s agenda,” Sanders said of Manchin. “The problem was we continued to talk to Manchin like he was serious,” he added later.
Sen. Joe Manchin is “intentionally sabotaging the president's agenda, what the American people want, what a majority of us in the Democratic caucus want,” Sen. Bernie Sanders tells @MarthaRaddatz.

So, Manchin can only be considered ‘serious’ when he’s supporting a wicked left-wing spending agenda as America teeters on the edge of recession? Okay, Bernie, sure, whatever you say.
Manchin informed Democratic leadership on Thursday that he would not support tax increases on the wealthy or new clean energy spending as part of an economic agenda Democrats hoped to consider this summer.
Manchin said in a radio interview that it was “not prudent” to pass a significant spending bill as inflation is “wreaking havoc” on people across the United States, per the Guardian.
Sanders waved off Manchin’s inflation concerns in the only way a whacked-out socialist knows how — attack your opponent’s wealth or their relation to America’s wealth (even though Sanders is wealthy himself).
The socialist lawmaker called Manchin’s inflation concerns “nonsense”, claiming the West Virginia Democrat has been voicing these same concerns “for a year.”
Sounds about right, Bernie, since the downfall of America’s economy has been a slow and steady decline.
“In my humble opinion, you know, Manchin represents the very wealthiest people in this country, not working families in West Virginia or America.”
And who does Bernie Sanders represent as he sits atop an ivory tower in Washington D.C. dictating to news outlets what he believes is important for America’s “working families”?
What a joke.
