Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders left millions of viewers scratching their heads this week; bizarrely suggesting the American people are “living in a socialist society under President Trump.”
“Some say they don’t want socialism, referring to you… Why do you cling to that label ‘Democratic Socialist’ when it seems to confuse people?” asked CBS News.
“In my view, we are living right now -under Donald Trump- in a socialist society. The only difference is: Does the government work for working people, or does it work for billionaires?” said Sanders.
“I think we’re going to win in Nevada, I think we’re going to win in South Carolina,” he added. “Working people understand that we’ve got to stand-up to the corporate elite!”
