Bernie Sanders gets a little testy when forced to respond to questions about newly revealed millionaire status.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Saturday pushed back against criticism he received after saying this week that he is a millionaire.

“I didn’t know that it was a crime to write a good book, which turned out to be a best-seller,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told a crowd in Gary, Ind.

“I don’t apologize for writing a book that was No. 3 on The New York Times best-seller [list],” he added but reiterated his belief in a “progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share in taxes.”

Sanders also did a little humble bragging about how well his book sold and how many languages it was translated into, making him sound not just a little like a certain tangerine colored White House occupant. 

But here’s the thing, maybe Sanders made all of his millions through book sales, but there are also questions concerning that unspent campaign money from 2016. 

There were still millions and millions of dollars left in that campaign fund, which was about the same time that Bernie and his wife paid $575,000 in cash for a new 4 bedroom summer house in North Hero, Vermont. 

Of course, all of these questions would be cleared up quickly if Sanders just released his tax returns, but I am getting the feeling that he is almost as reluctant to do that as Donald Trump.

    I wish you’d post a link about this missing money. I can’t seem to find anything. What I did find is Bernie’s Pac Records as published on Open Secrets. They show that a little over 9 million was left over after the 2016 campaign and that it is still there as “cash on hand”. The FEC allows this money to be kept, to roll over into a new campaign (2020).

    This guy will never win. He needs to get a hobby and withdraw his nomination if he truly loves america, and not just his own reflection.

      He’s already out raised every one else on the list, in regards to campaign funds, by more than double. Like him or not, he’s the only chance of getting rid of Trump.

        A large mailing list doesn’t make him the best candidate. It makes him the only candidate that’s run a national campaign before. He couldnt beat Hillary, and Trump would tear him apart.

    let’s not forget the money dumbasses donated to Jill Stein so she could look into something something. I forget. Anyways, politicians including Trump are full of shit. I am appalled on a daily basis that people still think Trump was the messiah. The messiah for his own finances. No one in the lower rungs got anything they could brag about from Trump except a false sense of grandiosity. Sanders does the same shit. People, like to believe some old, coddled white man will find the way for them. How delusional we have become in America. Looking for our messiah. I thought this was a country run by the people yet people are bowing down to Trump. This world is heading for the dumb and dumber. People like Trump will walk away, having lined their already fat pockets and never blink twice our way. It’s the era of dumbasses, here in America and around the world in countries where dictators use their people, and country for their own riches.
