This week, the co-chair of Bernie Sanders’s campaign likened voting for Joe Biden to something I bet you’ve never done.
For a piece in The Atlantic titled “Don’t Count Trump Out,” Nina Turner’s quote was a DOOzy.
Apparently, she’s not big on Biden.
That’s a bit at odds with her former boss — as I covered just over a week ago, Bernie’s thrown his support behind the former vice president.
Mike Pence isn’t a fan — here’s why, from the horse’s mouth:
“The Biden-Sanders agenda would set America on the path of socialism and decline.”
Nina and Mike are on a bit of the same page there, but she’s got a crappier way of sayin’ it.
The Atlantic inquired: How did she feel about voting for JB?
For the Monday article, she answered as if it were SaTurdDay:
“It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of sh-t in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still sh-t.”
As noted by The Daily Caller, it’s not the first time Nina’s squatted on Joe.
In a January op-ed for The State, she asserted the Democratic nominee had “repeatedly betrayed black voters.”
The guy’s been around a long time, and — as per Turner — he hasn’t been all that progressive:
“Biden didn’t just vote for bills designed to prevent black students from accessing white schools: In a series of personal letters he actively courted pro-segregation senators to support the legislation.”
I supposed that helps explain why the co-chair of Bernie Sanders’s campaign likens voting for Joe Biden to something I hope you’ve never done.
As for 2020 being a choice between half a bowl of crap or twice as much, Democrats confused by the last election could learn from that: I believe for some of the country, 2016 was a choice for the lesser of two evils — the worse being, perhaps, not a bowl full of it, but a Hil made of it.
