As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Sanders Meets with Obama, Still Won’t Get Out

Sen. Bernie Sanders today met with President Obama, emerging from the session to say that “of course” he will continue to complete for the nomination.

Of course, because he’s a nut.

Donald Trump, he said, would be a “disaster” as president. So why not make it easier for him to win by staying in the Democratic primary race?

Sanders plans to meet with Hillary Clinton soon, he said, no doubt to extract as many concessions as possible before agreeing to call it quits.

From remarks he made at the White House after the meeting.

From Sanders’ remarks:

Donald Trump would clearly, to my mind and, I think, the majority of Americans be a disaster as president of the United States. It is unbelievable to me and — I say this in all sincerity — that the Republican Party would have a candidate for president who in the year 2016 makes bigotry and discrimination the cornerstone of his campaign.

In my view. the American people will not vote for or tolerate a candidate who insults Mexicans and Latinos, who insults Muslims, who insults African-Americans and women.

Needless to say, I am going to do everything in my power and I will work as hard as I can to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States.

I will of course, be competing in the D.C. primary which will be held next Tuesday.
This is the last primary of the Democratic nominating process.

I spoke briefly to Secretary Clinton” on Tuesday night, and I congratulated her “on her very strong campaign. I look forward to meeting with her in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 percent.

  1. I will stay in, and thusly defeat Trump….
    What the?

    Stay the course Bernie, even the hard liners on the right are feelin’ the bern, and loving it, with every new Trump v. Clinton poll we see.

  2. This begs the question, what did Obama encourage him to do?
    Obama is desperate to keep his dictates in play and he knows that Trump will destroy as many as he can.

    Perhaps Obama knows that Hillary is not going to win.

    All speculation on my part but Bernie is not going to back down on his socialistic tax raising policies.

    This Country cannot afford either of the dem candidates.

    • “Perhaps Obama knows that Hillary is not going to win”

      You could be right. Political parties, the White House and others commission deep polls which are never made public, and these private polls may be indicating Hillary is sinking too fast to win at this point. It’s being reported that she’s getting fewer primary votes than she did in 2008– losing young people, Independents, lots of Democrats bailing out on her campaign. Trump, on the other hand, has gotten more primary votes than any other Republican in history. So the winds are certainly not in her favor.

      What an interesting campaign. And now the Republican elites are wetting their pants and, if one believes the news, are planning to sabotage Trump at the convention and pull another name out of the hat to “replace” Trump. That move, if they try this tactic, will obviously put Hillary in the White House. Maybe the R elites really want Hillary in the White House, after all. Sure looks that way.

      • Just heard on local radio that Obama has endorsed Hillary.
        He cannot keep his nose out of this race.
        She is under investigation by the FBI, and the POTUS endorses her ???

  3. A nut, not so much.
    We see a elderly man who has never before been the idol of anyone, much less thousands of cheering fans and millions of voters. He still has campaign money and a public podium to promote his agenda of socialist ideas.
    He had to be stunned by the many supporters who turned out to hear him speak, and dumbfounded to see himself come within shouting distance of the Great Hillary and the Clinton powerhouse machine.
    For the first time in his life, he’s a Somebody, a nationally known politico.
    Why would he quit now – it’s still fun.
    Go Bernie.

  4. What a swine! Trump just issued a very lengthy, professionally choreographed video on Twitter endorsing Hillary!

    He brazenly said he would be out on the campaign trail with her starting next week!

    This is unprecedented and wholly unacceptable!!!

    Three – Obama, Hillary, and Sanders – will be ganging up on Trump for the next six months!

    Hillary and Obama are hiding so much fraud and crime…it should be open season on both of them. Just a few whistleblowers would do the trick – they need to be in orange jumpsuits!

  5. By many accounts, Obama and the Clintons despise one another. Obama is pretty much whatever he says– he means the opposite of what he just said.

    Look for him to dismiss Hillary and promote Biden instead. Any day now.

  6. As a woman I feel no adverse affects about Trump “insulting” women. Because he doesn’t.
    It’s funny that liberals really think conservatives have that “oh poor me” ideology that they so stubbornly cling to.
    I feel the bern of almost eight long years being told what I “feel” when the liberal idiots paste their oh, so tender “feelings” on my identity.
    Racism as a word has absolutely no meaning anymore.
    Like crazy old principals who made kids who said a bad word, say the word in front of a toilet & flush it away. Not only a waste of water, butt a meaningless gesture of stupidity.

    • The insulting charges against Trump are likely the application of Alinsky Rule 12 by the MSM and pro-HIllary camps:

      RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

      • Just gets more surreal every day.
        When you see over their crazy “rules” & not sucked into the bs you know you’re ok.
        But they’re not.

        • Yep. Their playbook is completely obvious, written about in many books, played out publicly in real life on a daily basis. Just can’t miss it.

  7. Bernie Sanders is a crazy communist. He said he would take 90% tax from the hard working Americans and give it to the bums or the low I.Q. people! Thats the kind of crazy idiot he is. The young people today that are voting for him don’t even know what a socialist/communist is! It seems like the young people don’t know anything about socialism and Bernie knows that and takes advantage of them and is brainwashing the youth with his hairbrained ideas. Shame on Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton for corrupting American youth for their lust for power and greed.
