If the cast of characters declaring for president in 2020 for Democrats isn’t scary enough, Democrats get even worse news.
Their top contender is under fire.
The Washington Examiner reports,
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has been unable to shake off allegations of sexual harassment on his 2016 campaign, an issue that could dog his 2020 White House ambitions.
While Sanders, 77, is trying to be proactive and was slated to meet Wednesday with women who had made accusations of sexual harassment against Sanders 2016 staffers, Democrats warn that the issue will be difficult to counter — especially with a number of high-profile women running against him.
Only a blind person couldn’t see this coming.
Democrats have been positioning women for president for quite some time. And they won’t let the failure of “The Great White Hope” Hillary Clinton stop them.
The party of women has been notoriously bad in dealing with women. The Harvey Weinstein issue aside, understand that Hillary Clinton got “rode hard and put up wet”, not once, but twice. Obama kicked her ass, and Trump obliged 8 years later in even more brutal fashion.
I wrote recently that Democrats don’t seem to like women in leadership:
As Philip Wegmann of the Washington Examiner noted, Democrats believe the presidency is a man’s job.
The presidency is a man’s job.
At least that’s the current word from the progressive base of the Democratic party in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election. New polling from Democracy for America shows the men solidly in the top three positions followed behind by the women.
Here is the breakdown:
Sen. Bernie Sanders, 36.14 percent
Vice President Joe Biden, 14.88 percent
Rep. Beto O’Rourke, 12.34 percent
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 7.89 percent
Sen. Kamala Harris, 6.95 percent
But who could blame Democrats for not liking their women?
Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Elizabeth “Fake Indian” Warren, just to name a few.
The article continues, essentially stating that it doesn’t matter if Sanders is guilty or innocent:
“He may be completely innocent when it comes to responsibility when it comes to this, but it’s definitely on the radar now, especially with all the women now [running for president],” said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill. “Everybody’s going to have their issue that they put forward, and some that they’ll have a problem defending. But clearly, on that list of things that candidates have to defend, this is one of them.”
And the Ghost of Kavanaugh hits the Democrats’ top hope. Or is this the Ghost of Clinton, the very woman who destroyed Sanders’ presidential hopes the last time?
Don’t you love watching Leftism’s death spiral occur on its own? Not only does Sanders have to deal with the threat of #MeToo and sexual harassment in a campaign doomed by the DNC and Hillary Clinton, he also has a problem with gender equality.
For some Democrats, Sanders has already made major missteps in handling the situation after multiple staffers on his campaign complained of sexual harassment and pay disparity stemming from his first presidential bid. One Democratic strategist pointed to what they saw as a tone-deaf response immediately after the news broke when Sanders said he wasn’t aware of the allegations because he was “a little bit busy running around the country” trying to become president.
The Democrats are too busy “running around the country” to address the issues they claim are near and dear to their hearts?
I think I understand. Because once Sanders was elected, he would have addressed the issues of women, blacks, Latinos, LGBTQ, the poor, illegals, Muslims, and so on. He just needed things to calm down.
Like they have for President Trump, right?
It appears others have my reservations about Sanders’ ability to act as President.
“I don’t think it’s a death knell for him … But I do think it’s a problem for him for sure,” said the Democratic strategist. “I don’t think Sanders handled this particularly well … If you can’t manage to create a culture in your presidential campaign, which is small compared to what happens in an administration, then I think it’s a big leap to ask that you can then be trusted with the presidency if you can’t keep track of the culture you’ve created and [what] your most trusted employees are doing and the way they’re managing your staff.”
This is a Leftist hit piece of a high-profile Leftist.
Instead of allowing Sanders to gain any more traction, the Democrats have decided to take Sanders out.
At 36 percent, almost triple the next contender, the 77-year old socialist clown must be dealt with. And Leftist women believe, “It OUR turn!”…again.
Sanders is doomed, as the attacks will continue. And this shows you the desperation of the Democrats. Because at 36 percent and his showing in 2016, he’s the obvious front-runner for the party. Yet they torch the man.
Democrats cannot be seen as the party of old white men. So Sanders must be taken out. Next will be Joe Biden. Because his sexual harassment is legendary.
After Biden is “Beto”. And when things get out about him, he will fall by the wayside, or become a VP candidate. With these men out of the way, the path will be cleared for a woman. And Trump will beat this woman like Ike beat Tina, politically of course.
