Bernie Sanders Condemns Anti-Trump Rioters Then Launches Into Tirade Against Trump (VIDEO)
This seems to be a pattern with everyone on the left. It’s like they’re saying, I don’t condone violence, but..
No one seems capable of just condemning the violence.
Here’s what Bernie said, via ABC News:
Bernie Sanders Condemns Violent Protests in San Jose
Bernie Sanders said Friday that he understood the anger many voters and activists feel towards Donald Trump, but condemned the violence that erupted in San Jose, CA, last night at a Trump event, saying he did not want any supporters who were resorting to violence.
“Violence is absolutely and totally unacceptable,” Sanders said. “Anyone even thinking about violence, please do not tell anybody you are a Bernie Sanders supporter, because those are not the supporters that I want”
For months, Sanders has called the presumptive Republican nominee a “bigot” and a “liar,” and almost daily Sanders has accused Trump of scapegoating minorities. He said during the press conference tailored toward issues of labor and economy that he empathized with the outrage of those demonstrating.
“I understand how reprehensible and disgraceful Donald Trump’s positions are,” he continued. “I can understand the anger, I surely can, because I feel it. The bigotry that is coming from his mouth, the insults to the Mexican community, and the Latino community, and the Muslim community, and women, and African Americans, and veterans, I understand the anger.”

Nice try, Bernie.
Thanks for being such a uniter.
