Speaking during ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean weighed-in on the Democratic Party’s lurch towards socialism; saying a radical brand of far-left liberalism has hijacked Congressional legislators.
“Brand-new, far-left socialism has now taken over the Democratic Party, a new radicalism… Don’t forget about New York Mayor Bill de Blasio complaining there’s a lot of wealth in New York, it’s just in the wrong hands. Now he wants to confiscate private property from landlords,” said Sean.
“Out in left-wing California, you’ve got Gavin Newsom who now wants you to pay for your drinking water. They’re now banning paper receipts because they’re not good for the environment,” he added.

SOCIALISM USA! Bernie Calls for ‘Political Revolution’ Against ‘Fossil Fuel Billionaires’
Vermont Senator and potential 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders set his sights on “fossil fuel billionaires” Monday; saying the United States needs a “political revolution” to turn the country towards “clean energy.”
Sanders posted his incendiary comments on social media this week; slamming President Trump’s tax cuts as an outright “lie” to middle class Americans.
“During Trump’s campaign, he repeatedly promised the American people that ‘the rich would not gain at all’ from his tax plan. He said it would provide a ‘big-league tax cut for the middle class.’ He lied. It’s time for an economy that works for all of us, not just the rich,” Sanders tweeted.
