It appears that several Democrats are finally ‘feeling the Bern.’
The Daily Wire reported:
South Carolina Democrat Representative Joe Cunningham strongly pushed back on Sanders’ extremist proposals, which would cost between $60 trillion to $100 trillion, a figure that would easily bankrupt the U.S.
Bernie would do nothing but completely destroy our economy to a degree that, no matter how high you raise the taxes, would just not work in practice or fix anything.
When I think of Bernie’s economical ideologies, I envision him placing a band-aid on a cracking dam while continuously filling the river with more water.
Just look at how the tables are turning –
If Dems go on to nominate Sanders, the Russians will have to reconsider who to work for to best screw up the US. Sanders is just as polarizing as Trump AND he’ll ruin our economy and doesn’t care about our military. If I’m Russian, I go with Sanders this time around.

More from The Daily Wire:
Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) told The New York Times: “I’m the first Democrat to win in my district since 1958. I attracted a lot of independent and moderate Republican support, many of whom probably voted for a Democrat for the first time in a long time. And while I respect Bernie Sanders as a senator, as a candidate, his candidacy is very challenging for people who come from districts like mine.”

Some Democrats preferred to remain anonymous when voicing concerns, expressing fear of losing the House of Representatives and the White House altogether.
My gut tells me that we’re going to have a multitude of closet Trump supporters as time ensues.
Your hat says “Bern” but your heart says “MAGA!”
