These are certainly strange bedfellows, but sometimes the truth of a situation overrides normal partisan persuasions.
Case in point, here’s Briahna Joy Gray, one of the former Sanders campaign top surrogates, retweeting a Tucker Carlson clip. But it’s what she says about it that’s most interesting.
Bernie was too kind to go after Biden, but it's coming.
Either Dem leadership cares more abt maintaining a corporate status quo than getting rid of Trump, or they're planning to replace Joe – adopting a pretty fast and loose relationship w/ representative Democracy.

I mean, is she wrong?
As I wrote earlier today, Joe Biden quite literally can’t complete a sentence in his current condition. His ramblings aren’t just occasional flubs, they are a constant deluge of mental degradation on display. How is a guy who can’t articulate even the most simple of points going to lead the country through a crisis?
Even without him being President, we’ve already seen Biden’s awful judgment and inability to process problems being put on display. Just a day ago, the former VP was criticizing the “pace” of Trump’s institution of a travel ban. In reality, Biden opposed Trump’s travel ban, calling it “hysterical xenophobia.”
This is a man who’s been wrong about nearly every major foreign policy issue of the last 40 years. Couple that with the fact that he’s now mimicking a corpse on what’s left of the campaign trail and you have a recipe for disaster if he wins the election in November.
These Sanders surrogates see that and they are right to throw shade at the DNC. Bernie is a crazy person, but he was at least able to articulate his positions. The language coming from his fanbase and his former campaign workers doesn’t show a group of people ready to fall in line. Rather, it shows a group ready to go to war and say the stuff Bernie was too cowardly to say. “It’s coming” isn’t an idle threat.
That’s bad, bad news for the Democrats. But they deserve every bit of it.
