And despite all of that, Clinton traded on her family name. She traded on her immense network of media connections to hobble Sanders’ campaign. She is *still* doing that. I didn’t have to read FOX News or listen to right-wing radio to know that she was a terrible candidate. That information was easy to find.

During Obama’s 8 years, we lost 1000 seats across the country in statehouses, governors mansions, and Congress. That, more than anything is what gave us Trump. Sanders was a tiny blip on the radar compared to all of the money-grubbing by the elites in the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton and all of her friends would make Boss Tweed proud.

Sanders isn’t the problem. He’s the messenger, but nobody cares to look at the history of how we got Trump in the first place. Sanders is the only one who is even bothering to notice what happened over 40 years and talk about it. So your attempts to lay the blame on me fall flat in the face of all of that evidence.
