Sen. Bernie Sanders makes it clear why Donald Trump is the “worst president in the history of the United States.” Or to put it another way, he’s the best president in history… at being the worst president, Sanders allowed.
That makes the mid-term elections in November also one of the most important in history. According to Sanders, one party rule in Washington has been devastating for the country. The House, Senate and White House are all controlled by the Republican Party.
“What 2018 is about, is for a start, paying attention to the needs of working families in this country, stopping an agenda which wants to throw up to 32 million people off of the health care they have, make massive cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security disability, education and environmental protection, all the while giving a billion dollars in tax breaks to the top 1 percent,” he said.
“This election is about, among other things, stopping that agenda,” he told host Jordan Klepper.
Giving tax breaks to billionaires while cutting programs for people who are living in desperation “is not what this country is all about,” Sanders continued.
But wait, there’s more.
The president is a pathological liar who is trying to divide us up based on the color of our skin, gender, religion or the country we came from, This is also not what this country is about, “and we cannot allow that to continue.”
Boom! There, he said it.
How did we get saddled with Trump? For starters, only 37 percent of voters turned out in the last election, the lowest percentage in the nation’s history.
