Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 21, 2019

Bernie Sanders raised nearly $6 million in the 24 hours following his 2020 presidential campaign launch, his campaign said Wednesday, a record-smashing debut that easily outstripped his Democratic rivals. Sanders raised $5,925,771 from 223,047 individual contributors across all 50 states in the campaign's first 24 hours, and more than $6 million from 225,000 individuals in total since the launch. And Sanders' campaign also noted that the average contribution was $27, "mirroring [Sanders'] 2016 campaign's average donation," a symbolic reflection of the Vermont senator's grassroots support that was key to his anti-establishment bid against Hillary Clinton.

Step one in the winnowing of the Dem candidates: how much $$ can you raise, and how fast? Bernie nailed step one.

Old, pale and male still brings in the Dem $$, much to the dismay of the Woke Agenda.

Too bad Bernie stopped running on his 2016 platform, wealth equity, lower cost education and health care. The minute he moved to the Dem team he runs on identity politics, everyone on the right are racists and bigots. I wonder if his old supporters will figure this out. Maybe he changed after he bought his third house or his wife got busted for bilking a school.

Sanders is sure to get the Cuban vote in Florida.

"Way back in, what was it, 1961, they invaded Cuba," Sanders said, "and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society."

So you're just here to prove you know NOTHING about sander's platorm?

He's running on the same things as 2016, PLUS pointing out the FACT that trump is a disgusting racist sexist monster.

Bernie vs Trump 2016 would have been a slam dunk for Bernie.

Bernie vs Trump 2020 will be a different story. The Trumpublican Party has had two years to misrepresent what social democracy is.

I'm calling my shots like Babe Ruth. The DNC playbook is obvious and nothing has changed since the last election. Anyone who doesn't endorse Kamala Harris will be a racist and sexist starting with Bernie supporters. Glowing articles about Kamala and attack articles toward Bernie will be written and vetted by Podesta and Co...and when Kamala gets her ass kicked, it will be blamed on the Russians.

@ Benny the Russian

Why do you Russian snowflakes ALWAYS claim victimhood?
I'm so old I remember when your kind at least pretended to be tough guys, instead of being the emasculated whips you are currently.
