Rich Fat Cat Bernie Sanders RIPPED for Hypocrisy [VIDEO]
Bernie Sanders represents all the Leftists hypocrites who pretend to enjoy their poverty.
Nothing can be further from the truth.
Like all Leftists, they tell you who they are by what they pretend to fight for. So when Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) took to Twitter Saturday to rail against the United States for being a nation that “worships wealth,” you knew exactly where he stood.
However, Twitter was not kind, as many Americans (including Leftists) quickly bitch-slapped the old fraud.
We are living in a nation which worships wealth rather than caring for the poor. I don't think that is the nation we should be living in.

Let’s profile Bernie Sanders.
Sanders owns three homes, his most recent purchase a $600,000 lakefront property in Vermont last year.
Next, despite being a government employee and public servant for the majority of his adult life, Sanders has made quite a bit of money. Moreover, Sanders only paid a tax rate of 13.5 percent in 2014, a paltry amount, given all his big talk about the rich not paying their “fair share.”
This first tweet blasts Sanders for “keeping up with the McCains,” as the tweep references Sanders’ homes.
Another tweep followed suit, singling out the latest Sanders purchase of a $600,000 lake house.
It would seem that Sanders started doing the math on his age, and concluded “Socialism sucks!”
@BernieSanders how's that $600,000 summer house working out for you

This tweep reference Sanders apparent lack of charity.
@BernieSanders ok Mr. 13.5% tax rate. Maybe you should pay your fair share, possibly sell 1 of your 3 homes and give money to charity?

Of course, Sanders railed against Donald Trump, asking for his taxes to be released.
Hypocrisy much, Bernie. He argued that Trump paid $0 in taxes.
In this interview Bernie Sanders hammered Donald Trump over a New York Times report that he could have avoided paying federal income taxes for 18 years after declaring a $916 million loss on his 1995 tax return.
“This is exactly why so many millions of Americans are frustrated. They’re angry, they’re disgusted, at what they see as a corrupt political system in this country,” the Vermont senator told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
The president later blasted the report as “fake news.”
Let’s look at what Bernie Sanders paid in REAL dollars compared to Trump. According to the Washington Post,
…Sanders and his wife paid $27,653 in federal income tax and another $7,903 in Vermont income tax last year. The couple paid an effective tax rate of 19.6 percent on their federal taxable income of $140,994.
The roughly $36,000 (rounded up) paid by Sanders is a far cry from $38,000,000 paid by Trump.
For those doing the math, Sanders would have to love 1,000 years to pay ONE YEAR OF Trump’s taxes.
