Vermont’s socialist democrat Senator Bernie Sanders was once the toast of the left. He said all the right things about any given subject, promoted socialism, and was consistently voted the most popular politician in America. Now, it would appear Sanders’s political career has lived long enough to see him become the villain.

It looks as if the left is now turning on him. Big time.

Sanders apparently made the unforgivable move of ruining Neera Tanden’s chances for the Biden administration’s Management and Budget office. Sanders questioned Tanden about her “vicious attacks” against both Republicans and hard-leftists, including himself.

As West-Virginia’s Joe Manchin summed it up:

“I have carefully reviewed Neera Tanden’s public statements and tweets that were personally directed towards my colleagues on both sides of the aisle from Senator Sanders to Senator McConnell and others,” Manchin said. “I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget.”

Sanders being on the same side as Manchin might as well be Sanders being on the same side as Trump and the left took to Twitter to see to it that Sanders was put on blast for his sins.

Apparently, Sanders’s point caused a domino effect that ruined Tanden’s chances, with other senators using Sanders’ momentum to further scrutinize the nominee, ending in a “no” vote.

This was apparently an unforgivable sin for even Sanders to commit, and now Twitter is in an uproar around the Vermont senator in what appears to be the beginnings of a cancelation by the left. The reasoning? Sanders must be both racist and sexist.

To be fair, Sanders does have his defenders within the Democrat Party but it would appear that Sanders has lost his luster. He’s been branded as two of the worst things you could be in this day and age to the left and whatever sweetheart status he had is now long gone.
