Bernie Sanders made an appearance on "State of the Union" on Sunday morning, where he discussed the Republican Shutdown, and an ad just released by the reelection campaign of the Rouge Racist, Donald Trump.  Do you remember the Willy Horton ad released by GHW "Barfer" Bush?  Compared to Trump’s that ad was kind

0122BernieBlastOn CNN’s Sunday morning show "State of the Union," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) cast the Republican Party’s refusal to protect young immigrants as a grave mistake and echoed other Democrats’ statements that he would be willing to negotiate on a border wall in order to keep "Dreamers" safe from deportation.

In his interview with Jake Tapper, the senator denounced an ad released by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign which portrayed Democratic lawmakers as "complicit" in any murder committed by an undocumented immigrant.

"It is really unbelievable and so sad for our country that we have a president of the United States who says such nonsense and such outrageous statements," Sanders said, adding that the vast majority of Americans support  protections for Dreamers—about 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and have been protected by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Trump has moved to repeal.

"They need a path towards citizenship. That’s not my view. That is the overwhelming view of the American people," Sanders said. "Then you see a president put stuff like that on the air trying to divide us up, trying to foment hatred? It is—it is really sad."…

Barf Bag Alert!!

As horrid as that ad is, remember that Republicans support Trump, because what he does is who they are.

  1. If he is going to say Democrats are complicit in every murder committed by an immigrant (which I’ll wager are pretty few and far between anyway), then he will have to take responsibility for complicity himself for every murder committed by a white supremacist (of which there are many). Wake me when that happens.

  2. Truly a sad state that we’re in. Absolutely despicable on Repug’s/dt’s comments (ads).Sickening!Screw the wall, and keep our Dreamers!! You GO, Bernie!!

  3. S**thole, spewing s**t!
    Is this the lead-up to the 2018 congressional races, with tDump telling his morons that they have to fight the momentum that is working for the Dems to take back seats?  
    Once again, tDump is taking the lead with outrageous crap, and the publicity follows.  The Dems will do well, I believe, to take their own stands and not spend time and resources rebutting everything the Orange Liar-in-chief puts out!
    Common Dreams: Bernie responds well.  He did not answer the question about swapping out the wall for the Dreamers, but did talk to the moral issue of the country in regard to them.  
    I do not know whether tDump is against the Dreamers because it plays to his s**tsheep, because he does not want an additional 800,000 citizens who will, especially now, never vote republican, or if it is just that he’s a racist…could be ALL THREE together, in an overdetermined gathering of evil!

  4. Bernie is spot on, as always, but “sad”?! That’s not the word that springs to my mind seeing this ad. Utterly repulsive, something that any decent American would want to stay miles away from, ashamed about what it says about their president and the party, or rather the sock puppets of the 1%, that enable him.

    The Republicans now have their three weeks respite, promising to debate the Dreamers, and Drumpf can go to Davos where he had invited himself to, crowing victory. Mind you, Republicans have never kept their word and how much can Democrats expect from them if they back this repulsive ad? I expect we’re all here again in three weeks time.

  5. Drumpf said (either in a tweet or directly, I can’t remember, but also in the ad):

    “Democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants.”

    First of all, it is NOT “all illegal immigrants” that are addressed in DACA, but the young children brought to the US by their parents and for the most part, who know no other country.  Illegal immigrants other than those protected under DACA are still subject to deportation.

    Second, what happens to the children of Dreamers who are US citizens?  Are they illegally stripped of their citizenship by their country based on their heritage?  Based on the actions of their grandparents?

    Third, should then Drumpf and all Republicans be held complicit in the deaths of American citizens who are thrown off healthcare because of the paring back of Obamacare in the attempt to repeal it?

    Fourth, what about the chaos and murder created by white supremacists and the like?  It seems that Drumpf and Republicans are then, by corollary, complicit in their chaos and murder.

    So this is the pro life party???  Drumpf and Republicans are more despicable than the year is long!  They are the purveyors of greed and misogyny and hatred!

    Kudos to Bernie for speaking up!!!

  6. Thanks and tired hugs to all. 18
