Is there anyone happier that Joe Biden overtook Bernie Sanders than Hillary Clinton? I say that because the clip you are about to see was almost certainly filmed before Bernie’s rise and fall, meaning that just a week ago, this would have been disastrous for Democrats.
But with Bernie collapsing, this clip suddenly transforms into just another crowbar to the shins of the Vermont senator’s campaign.
she's going to hell btw 🤠👍 pic.twitter.com/z1VL42ZPCd

What a freaking takedown, so much so that I’m surprised she was willing to go that far knowing he could have still been the nominee at the time.
Is she wrong though? Bernie was literally kicked off a commune for being too lazy. He’s never held a real job, only getting elected as a mayor in his late 30s. He then parlayed that into a Congressional career, where he’s been living as a ward of the state ever since.
Obviously, Clinton holds a grudge, as her angst seems to stem from Bernie’s 2016 run against her. Although, he did end up endorsing her and playing nice, so it’s a bit odd that she still has such animosity. But no one ever accuses the Clintons of being good people, I suppose.
Meanwhile, if you read the responses to that video, the Bernie Bros are hopping mad. They are feeling it from all sides right now and the more boxed in they get, the more they are to rebel in November. That’s good for Republicans and I can’t say I blame them. The way the Democratic party has coordinated to take out Bernie in the last week is pretty incredible. You almost have to respect their ability to immediately get everyone to fall in line behind a guy like Joe Biden, who’s showing clear signs of a mental collapse.
Clinton throwing gasoline on the Bernie Bros’ rage doesn’t seem smart to me if the goal is to unify the party before the election, but her ego took over here and it shows. Trump should probably send her a thank you card.
