Sanders Backs Biden To Be The Nominee; Trashes Democrats, Media For Trying To Replace Him

Last Updated 2 weeks by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) indicated over the weekend that he still backs President Joe Biden to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee this fall against President Donald Trump.

Sanders made the remarks during a Sunday CBS News interview on “Face The Nation” with Robert Costa when asked about the state of the race following Biden’s disastrous debate performance.

“President Biden can clearly defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in the history of this country,” Sanders said. “And the choice is quite clear.”

Sanders that the area where he is “critical of the Biden campaign” is that they are not going far enough left on policy.

“It’s one thing to talk about your record over the last three-and-a-half years, which is a strong record, but the American people are hurting, 60 percent of our people living paycheck to paycheck; 25 percent of elderly people are trying to get by on $15,000 a year or less,” he said. “The American people want an agenda for the next four years that speaks to the needs of the working class of this country. And, frankly, I don’t think the president has brought that agenda forward. He has got to say, I am prepared to take on corporate greed, massive income and wealth inequality and stand with the working class in this country. He does that, he’s going to win, and win big.”

Sanders said that he has already done multiple campaign events for Biden and that will continue to do so.

“What we’re talking about now is not a Grammy Award contest for best singer,” he said. “Biden is old. He’s not as articulate as he once was. I wish he could jump up the steps on Air Force One. He can’t.”

“What we have got to focus on is policy,” he continued. “Whose policies have and will benefit the vast majority of the people in this country? Who has the guts to take on corporate America? Who is talking about expanding Medicare so we cover dental, hearing and vision? Who’s talking about raising the cap on the taxes that people pay into Social Security, so we can raise social security benefits and extend the life of Social Security for 75 years?”

Sanders added that Biden should promise to deliver a new vision for the country that amounts to a far-left wishlist if Democrats win the House, Senate, and White House — even though they held all three during Biden’s first two years in office.

“I find it personally insulting that The New York Times and all these media organizations go out front page, ‘oh, this is what the billionaire campaign donors feel’,” he late added. “Well, to hell with the billionaire campaign donors. Let’s worry about the working class of this country and what their needs are.”

When asked about efforts from Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) to hold talks about possibly replacing Biden, Sanders said that he would have no part of those talks because Warner is “one of the more conservative members of the Democratic Caucus.”

“Biden had a terrible debate performance. I think he’s done better since,” he said. “He’s got to do better again. And I know that that is a legitimate concern. But I think, most importantly now, this is not a beauty contest. It’s not a Grammy Award contest. It is a contest of who stands with the vast majority of the people in this country, the elderly, the children, working class, the poor. And that candidate is obviously Joe Biden.”
