If Bernie had won the election – and I had to take a little break here because it’s such a beautiful dream that I got a little blurry-eyed – would we be in the same situation with an investigation and spying accusations right now? Because Russians were promoting both Trump and Bernie on social media. Bernie had taken a trip to the USSR, which means he was accompanied by KGB agents throughout the trip. He promised a kindly meeting with Putin during the election. He was averse to criticizing Russia. He benefited like nobody else from the hacking of the DNC server. It would be easy to accuse him.
Obviously, I don’t think Bernie is a Russian spy. He’s an honest person of the highest moral standards and unempeachable character. I supported Hillary but always recognized that in terms of his quality as a human being Bernie is in a different galaxy from Hillary. And I’m not comparing him to Trump in this sense because that would be offensive to Bernie.
But would we be in the same place with the losers incapable of accepting they lost and creating a ridiculous spy drama? The birtherist idiocy tells me that yes, we would.
