FLASHBACK: Bernie Crumbles Under Pressure When Questioned About the Economy and Socialism

If you ask me, I honestly think that Bernie Sanders would have had a better chance at beating President Trump in the election than Joe Biden.

Don’t mistake that as me saying that I think that Bernie COULD beat the President. I only think that he would have done better than Biden.

I think Bernie had to potential to do much more damage than Biden though. Take for instance when he was on “Meet the Press” speaking with Chuck Todd.

I’m not a fan of Chuck Todd, but he shook Bernie Sanders when asked about the economy and socialism.

Chuck Todd asked Sanders about people who are enjoying the economy and have a 401k.

Here’s a partial transcript you can watch the video below:

TODD:

Somebody that likes their 401K right now but doesn’t like the character of Donald Trump, how do you convince them to vote for you?

SANDERS:

I convince them to vote for us because we are going to create an economy that works for the middle class, and working —

TODD:

But they think their economy works well for them.

SANDERS:

Well, for some of them it may. But —

TODD:

Yeah, it’s been working well. That’s my point —

SANDERS:

Chuck, look here is the reality. Half of the American people today are living paycheck to paycheck. Today you got a half a million people sleeping out on the streets when you got three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of America. We’re the only country in the world, major country in the world, not to guarantee healthcare to all people. We’ve got 45 million people struggling with student debt. Please don’t tell me that this economy is working well for all people. It is working phenomenally well for Trump’s billionaire friends, not for working classes —

TODD:

The reason I bring up the S-word, democratic socialism, is because let’s just take the swing state of Florida. I grew up in Miami, and I know what they’re going to do to you. They’re going to tie socialism to Venezuela. They’re going to tie comments you made about Evo Morales and Bolivia. And —

SANDERS:

Yeah, what about Evo Morales? I mean —

TODD:

— you know, they’re going to say you will appease socialists in Latin America. You have not condemned them the way others have condemned them, and use that to try get — to wedge people. You know that is what they’re going to do.

SANDERS:

Well, they may — look, we’re dealing with a president who is a pathological liar. So what are we going to do? I mean, he’s going to say anything he wants about me —

TODD:

Right, but Evo Morales —

SANDERS:

— about Joe Biden, about Pete Buttigieg —

TODD:

You stood behind Evo Morales when he clearly went, you know —

SANDERS:

No. I stood about Evo — I stood with Evo Morales in condemning a coup. I do not like military coups.

TODD:

He tried to read — he tried to violate his country’s —

SANDERS:

No, there’s a big debate —

CHUCK TODD:

— constitution.

SANDERS:

There was, well, that’s another discussion. I don’t know that everybody’s interested in Ecuador, but he was overthrown by the military. Not a particularly good president. We got a president of the United States who’s cozying up to the autocrat, Putin, who says nice things about Kim Jong-un. You know, so you want to talk about cozying up to communists around the world —

TODD:

No, I —

SANDERS:

— it ain’t me, it is Donald Trump.
