When Bernie Sanders ran for president in the 2016 election, all we ever heard was how much he despised ‘millionaires and billionaires.’

His core campaign message was that “millionaires and billionaires” have cornered far too much wealth and power in this country – and need to be reined in by a more activist federal government.

Ah, but now, magically, Sanders has, himself, become a millionaire. How? By writing a book. You know, the kind of thing us hard-working people would never have time to do, because we are too busy going to work and back, so we can pay our utility bills.

And the worst part of this is how Sanders defended his newfound wealth:

“I wrote a best-selling book,” he told the Times. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”

Simple? Maybe. Well maybe only if you once ran for president.

This is the fraud of Bernie Sanders. I guess his new speech on why he should become president will have to change the narrative and go after just billionaires.
