Sanders to faithful: Take down Trump, take over Democratic Party

Published June 11, 2017

Chicago (CNN) - Bernie Sanders' permanent "political revolution" rolled into Chicago on Saturday night as the Vermont senator called on progressive activists gathered here to beat back President Donald Trump's agenda while remaking the Democratic Party.

Speaking to a crowd of buzzing supporters in former President Barack Obama's adopted hometown, Sanders ripped Trump's "incredible hypocrisy" and called the President a demagogue who makes "even a very conservative president like George W. Bush" appealing in comparison.

But it was his unsparing assessment of the party whose nomination he sought in 2016 that set off an audience nearly 4,00 mostly dedicated "Berniecrats."

"I am often asked by the media and others, "How did it come about that Donald Trump, the most unpopular presidential candidate in the modern history of our country, won the election?" he offered teasingly as chants of "Bernie would have won" filled the hall.


Editorial Note: In light of this morning's incidents and the fact the shooter was a Bernie fan, did Sanders incite this violent episode against Republicans? You be the judge.

Not to mention the psycho killer was from Illinois. Who knows maybe he was there that night and then drove back to VA.

One of his stalwarts acted on Sanders' exhortation by shooting Republican congressmen in Alexandria, VA today. Bernie deserves full credit for that outrage.

These comments by Sanders and DNC, Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer and Cummings screaming "resist" and Soros pushing riots are all instigating and promoting these actions of violence.

6:56 I agree. Sanders should be brought up on charges for inciting violence.

And he was insincere about what he said about his campaign supporter, the Domestic Terrorist.
