You go Bernie! A true New York original and the only one who can beat Trump…another NY native.


I find it interesting that all my Democrat friends including myself are for Bernie sanders, in many social medial polls everyone is with Bernie but on the media Hillary is dominant. Its like, I just can’t put my finger on it, but I suppose if the media says Hillary is winning I guess I’ll have to vote for her… No wait, I don’t have to vote for whoever the media says is winning, I can like, vote for Bernie cause that’s who I’d want to win. Oh snap, I think I’ll just vote for Bernie like everyone else I know is. ^__^


Social media is skewed towards Millennials, who haven’t figured out that the world doesn’t run on Mommy and Daddy’s credit card. The media reflects a more mature, realistic view of the world. But, by all means, bloody Hillary’s nose as much as you can.


“Finally, let understand that when we stand together, we will always win. When men and women stand together for justice, we win. When black, white and Hispanic people stand together for justice, we win.” Bernie Sanders

that’s some impressive organization he has, opening an office a week before the primary. he expects to beat Hillary?


I guess Hillary is too busy campaigning in Harlem. The problem with Hillary being impervious to influence is that she’s a know-it-all with a second-rate intellect, and nobody can tell her s*** about anything. She is immune to counsel. Her campaign handlers have already lost control of her.


I have no use for Trump, Cruz, or Clinton but this clown is a true well meaning idiot. Like a crazy uncle with a few to many drinks in him.


Whatever. Both Democrats and Republicans are obsessed with anything Queen Hillary does and she will be President because of the Oprah-like obsession people have towards her. If she was ever caught breaking wind in public it would be discussed for months all across the world. Republicans would claim she would be unfit for President because it’s unbecoming of a WOMAN even though men do this all the time, while Democrats would see it as the bold, world changing action it is and she’d come out smelling like roses in the end as she always does. Queen Hillary *always* (excluding that Obama fluke) wins.
