WATCH: Bernie Sanders DODGES question on why socialism failed in Venezuela

Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to answer tough questions about Venezuela and dodged one tonight on MSNBC.

Chris Hayes asked Bernie Sanders what he thinks went wrong in Venezuela that was an avowedly socialist project.

But Bernie refused to answer it, saying it was a ‘long story’ that they didn’t have time to get into.

Of course Hayes let him get away with his dodge:



Sanders wouldn’t even criticize Maduro. Instead he just said there should be ‘free and fair’ elections in Venezuela, which sounds just like Obama.

But he also wanted to make sure to get in a jab at the Trump administration, saying that Trump should not get involved in helping to overthrow Maduro. He says the future should rest with the people of Venezuela and not with the Trump administration.

Yep, the exact same mealy mouth crap that Obama used to spew. If Bernie gets elected, it’s gonna be Obama all over again, and possibly worse.

PLEASE DON’T DO THIS TO US AMERICA!

It is a long story but geez, not even calling out the leadership in Venezuela?

OT: I can’t believe he’s running again. Going to be some ruffled feathers in the party in a major way…

Wrong answer, Bernie. The correct answer is short and simple: Marxism failed in Venezuela because it NEVER WORKS! It never has, it never will.

See how easy that is?

And what do we put in place to keep the people on top from having all the money and goods while the rest of the country lives on next to nothing? In other words, we need to reduce the salaries of all government people to the average income of Americans. We need to take all walls down around politicians’ houses so they are just like us. We need to remove all guns from all politicians so that they can experience the defenselessness the rest of the population will experience when only criminals have guns.

The deranged conceit of these socialist loons is that socialism/communism is ready to succeed despite all its failures around the world. It just needs to be implemented correctly. You see stalin, mao and maduro just didnt do it right. But we’ll get it right in America. These ret*rds really believe this.

Second question for Bernie – “How much will all that ‘free stuff’ cost all of us?”

The only argument people like him offer is that Venezuela is not really socialist as a guy, who ran for president as a Socialist appearing in tucker said the other day.

Trump is in charge of the United States government.

Bernie Sanders hates Trump.
Yet Bernie (and others) want to give government even more power.
You can’t wrap your head around Bernie’s insanity.

If for no other reason this shows what a feckless leader BS would be, and why Trump is the greatest leader ever.

Correct me if I am mistaken: Venezuela just had a free and fair election. They elected a non-socialist. The socialist is now attempting a military coup. Literally everyone in the world except Mexico and Uruguay have recognized the results of the election. Is every media outlet on the planet so anti-Trump that they are unwilling to report this as it is?

Bernie is such a failure… only the left could prop him up as being a qualified leader.

Bernie was kicked out of a commune in the early 1970’s because he wasn’t willing to work and he was distracting other commune workers from getting things done. Sounds a lot like his pattern today, honestly.

An established and functioning Socialist government needs to have countries with humanitarian aid so the people don’t starve to death??? By his own moronic words proves that Socialism is a parasite of Capitalism.

I know, Bernie and his useful idiots won’t see the irony in that.

VT has a worse abortion bill than NY or VA. It passed the House. There’s a democrat super majority in the senate and a democrat governor that will sign it when it gets to his desk.No ultrasound mandated and no parental consent needed.

Not that the Bern will show up, but last night on Beck’s The News and Why It Matters he said that the Bern is supposed to be on his show during the 3rd hour. He tried to book him when he was running against Hillary but his team never returned calls. The time will be 11 eastern and 10 central for anyone interested.

I thought Trump should have been encouraging Bernie and the rest of the socialists to go down to Venezuela to either fix it or learn the best recipes for cats and dogs. Now I think it is too late and Maduro needs to kicked out.

You don’t say:

“A new rule adopted by the DNC may block Bernie Sanders from running as a Democrat in 2020”
https://twitter.com/AP4Liberty/status/1098726079123070976

As I said below, the Democrat establishment doesn’t want anything to do with Bernie. Hillary even rigged the primary to stop him last time. I can’t imagine Obama or his cronies want Bernie in there.

Who ever thought that crazy old Bolshevik Bernie would have a good chance of being the nominee
of a major party in a presidential election in America?

Why did we even have a cold war?

The commies in Leftist academia, and the media, have won what hundreds of billions of dollars worth
of tanks, planes, nukes, and armies couldn’t…

Democrat rules say you have to be a Democrat to run in their Primary, and yet… will he switch to the Democrat party again? If he doesn’t how can he run? If he does why would they still let him?

Bernie complains about Trump lying. Yet, he lies about what party he belongs to to get on the ballot. Beginning to end every word Bernie says is a lie. He tells them Socialism works. I don’t get it.

I wonder which one of the three homes will Bernie give up… anyone want to take a guess?

Btw, wasn’t his wife under FBI investigation for bank fraud? I mean, why would a socialist need money from a bank? They just need to ask the government, right?
