Of course, because things were going too smoothly.

Three years after fighting a surprisingly competitive Democratic primary race against Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, is making another run for the White House.
Two sources with direct knowledge of his plans told Yahoo News that Sanders, an independent and self-described “democratic socialist,” plans to announce his presidential bid imminently. While Sanders has been considering a bid for months, one of the sources said he was emboldened by early polls of the race that have consistently showed him as one of the top candidates in a crowded Democratic primary field. In particular, the source said Sanders was heartened to see numbers indicating he is one of the leading candidates among African American and Latino voters, two groups he was perceived as struggling with in 2016.
The source also alluded to a spate of recent polls that show Sanders as the most popular politician in the country. They attributed Sanders’ strength in the polls to the base and name recognition he built with the prior presidential bid.
“What the senator has this time that he didn’t have last time is he is the most popular elected official in the country right now,” the source said. “That’s light years away from 2016, when very few people knew who he was.”
I would not be at all surprised to learn that those polls were set up by the Russian troll farm and that their outcomes were manipulated to make it seem that Sanders is more popular than he is.
Let’s face it if you wanted to help Trump win a second term in office you would definitely want to have a Bernie Sanders in the mix screwing things up for the opposition.
The Bernie Bros have already started to harass certain females in the running, which is something Hillary Clinton finally addressed a while back.

Personally, I think that the Democratic party should just close the primary to anybody who is not a card-carrying member of the DNC.
We allowed ourselves to get distracted by this bullshit last time, it’s time we learned from our mistakes.
