Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville erupted on far-left Senator Bernie Sanders after the lawmaker labeled him a “political hack,” saying “at least I’m not a communist!”
“James, in all due respect, is a political hack, who said very terrible things when he was working for [then-Sen. Hillary] Clinton [D-N.Y.] against Barack Obama. I think he said some of the same things,” said Sanders.

Carville fired back hours later, telling Vanity Fair contributor Peter Hamby “Last night on CNN Bernie Sanders called me a political hack. That’s exactly who the F*** I am! I am a political hack! I’m not an ideologue, I’m not a purist… At least I’m not a communist!”

CARVILLE TO DEMOCRATS: ‘We’re Losing Our Damn Minds, I’m Scared to Death, Get Your S*** Together!’
Legendary Democratic strategist James Carville did not mince words when discussing the 2020 contenders in a recent interview; saying he’s “Scared to Death” while telling the party to “Get your s*** together!”
“What’s gone wrong? Who’s responsible?” asked Vox’s Sean Illing.
“It’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here… We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party,” said Carville.

“Most of the people aren’t into all this distracting s*** about open borders and letting prisoners vote. They don’t care. They have lives to lead. They have kids. They have parents that are sick. That’s what we have to talk about. That’s all we should talk about,” he added.

CARVILLE to NYT WRITER: ‘Do You Know How F***ing Patronizing That is to People in the South?’
Democratic strategist James Carville continued his all-out assault on the current crop of 2020 challengers in an interview published Friday; trashing one New York Times economist for “patronizing” Americans in the south and Midwest.
“Can I say one more thing about the cultural disconnect?” asked Carville. “A few weeks ago an economics writer for the New York Times, posted a snarky tweet about how LSU canceled classes for the National Championship game. And then he said, do the ‘Warren/Sanders free public college proposals include LSU, or would it only apply to actual schools?’”

“Do You know how f***ing patronizing that is to people in the South or in the middle of the country?” asked Carville. “It’s the God**** smugness. This is from a guy who lives in New York and serves on the Times editorial board and there’s not a single person he knows that doesn’t pat him on the back for that kind of tweet. He’s so f***ing smart.”
