Sanders Surrogate Calls Him New Leadership But HE’S BEEN SERVING SINCE 1991 (VIDEO)
Bernie Sanders fans think of him as a shiny new object even though he’s been making his living in government positions for decades. Even CNN wasn’t able to cover in this situation.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
CNN Host Calls Out Surrogate for Calling Bernie Sanders a ‘New Type of Leadership’
CNN host Carol Costello called out Bernie Sanders surrogate Nina Turner on Wednesday for referring to the 74-year-old U.S. Senator as a “a new type of leadership.”
Sanders (I., Vt.) has been in Congress since 1991, serving in the House of Representatives from then until he was elected to the Senate in 2006. He was re-elected in 2012.
“He has been a consistent warrior for the people in this country, Carol, and that is what people are looking for,” Turner said. “A new type of leadership that will stand up and say enough is enough, and that the working class and middle class in this country deserve—”
“I’m just confused when you say about new leadership, because Bernie Sanders has been in the [Congress] an awfully long time,” Costello said.

On a related note, in 2008 the left said John McCain was too old to be president.
Bernie Sanders is older now than McCain was in 2008.
Funny how that doesn’t matter… now.
