Sanders says something Republicans can agree with. It happens sometimes.
“All across this country, there are millions and millions of decent, good people who are frightened about the world that they are living in,” Sanders said during an appearance Wednesday night in Washington. “That is the reality that Mr. Trump perceived to be true. And he said, ‘I hear that you’re hurting, and I hear and understand that you’re worried about the future for your kids,'” Bernie said. Racists “are a very small minority of the people voted for Mr. Trump.”
Unlike the Washington elite, of which he is not a part, Sanders understands that there is deep frustration and fear in the country, even if his solutions will only make things much worse. While Clinton and Obama deliver blather about us not being “fearful,” Sanders gets the reality, that there are serious reasons for concern and Americans ought not be told to ignore reality.
