Is Bernie the Jewish Trump?

Bernie TrumpA day after many of his supporters protested at a rally for Donald J. Trump here, Sanders is effing up big time by taking sides … the wrong side .. in Chicago politics.

Bernie not only defended the demonstrators, he gratuitously attacked the city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, for closing dysfunctional schools and firing teachers who had been protected by union work rules. .

Bernie went on to demonize Mrs. Clinton as a friend of  Rahm Emanuel, “Hillary Clinton proudly lists Mayor Rahm Emanuel as one of her leading mayoral endorsers,” “Well let me be as clear as I can be: based on his disastrous record as mayor of the city of Chicago, I do not want Mayor Emanuel’s endorsement if I win the Democratic nomination.”

Mr. Sanders went on to blame banks that funded the school systems’ debts.  He  criticized the city for paying banks that “lured the school system into a risky investment in an exotic debt-financing scheme.”  The city of Chicago should sue these banks for fraud and put public pressure on these wealthy bankers to protect Chicago’s most precious asset – its children.  The reality is that there wouldn’t be a budget shortfall if Chicago had refused to pay Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and Bank of America over $500 million for risky financial schemes that were marketed as a way to finance the public school system.”

AA spokesman for Mr. Emanuel, said ““The Mayor is proud to have actually implemented a program to provide free college tuition in Chicago, instead of just talking about the idea,”  “On Wednesday Bernie Sanders will leave town and take his empty promises with him, and Mayor Emanuel will be right here doing the hard work to move Chicago forward and create opportunities for our residents.”

 

This is either fanaticism  or demagoguery. Neither is to Bernie’s credit.
