Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was just one of countless Democrats joining students from the nation’s capital during Wednesday’s ‘National Walkout Day” rally against guns; hypocritically hiding behind armed guards to protect the politician from the crowds of young people.
Footage of Sanders’ entrance and address at the march appeared on social media within minutes; showing him emerging the building flanked by Capitol Hill Police armed to protect the socialist Senator.

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Jimmy Kimmel MOCKS ‘MENTALLY ILL’ Trump After Florida Shooting
Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel took his war against President Trump to a new level Thursday night, slamming the Commander-in-Chief as “mentally ill” following the devastating school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The liberal comic viciously attacked the President while commenting on the tragedy that took place earlier this week, when seventeen individuals lost their lives after a 19-year old former student opened fire at a local high school.
“You’ve literally done nothing,” said Kimmel. “Actually, you’ve done worse than nothing. You like to say this is a mental health issue. One of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to actually roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill.”
“You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. So, I agree, this is a mental illness issue, because if you don’t think we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill,” he added.

BETTE GOES BERSERK: Midler Says ‘F*** YOU’ to GOP Following Deadly SCHOOL SHOOTING
Famed musician and actress Bette Midler went berserk on GOP lawmakers and Mitch McConnell in particular Thursday afternoon; slamming the Republican leader after he offered “the prayers of the whole Senate” to those injured in Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida.
The A-list celebrity lashed-out at McConnell on twitter for his heartwarming comments, saying “F*** you & your worthless thoughts and prayers,” after accusing the GOP leadership of putting campaign donations over the lives of American students.
“F*** you & your worthless thoughts and prayers; you & your obfuscating shills got what you wanted, $$$, while our kids get to die in school,” she posted.
Midler was responding to a tweet from the Senate Majority Leader earlier in the day.
“Schools should be places where children can learn, and faculty and staff can work, without fear of violence. My colleagues from Florida will carry home the prayers of the whole Senate, for victims and their families, for the community of Parkland, and for the first responders,” he wrote.
