Newsweek ^ | May 29, 2018 | Alexandra Hutzler

The campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in his 2016 presidential run hinted that the Independent senator from Vermont may run for the White House again in 2020.

Sanders is “considering another run for the presidency,” but for now is completely focused on his congressional re-election campaign in November, Jeff Weavers said in an interview with C-Span host John McArdle on Monday.

Sanders made waves as the progressive who consistently challenged former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in his 2016 primary bid. His platform largely focused on issues like universal healthcare and income equality.

When Sanders announced his candidacy for president in 2015, he was 50 points behind Clinton in almost every major national poll.

Many People on the left stayed home because Bernie was the candidate.

I welcome a contest between Socialist populism and patriotic American populism. Who will his running mate be?

Bernie gets paid to be a diversion, siphoning money and airtime from anyone who might get in the way of whomever’s shoving him out there. I can see why Bernie does it. It’s great money! But the rubes who keep sending it to him...Jeez, they’re just really sad.

Don’t you mean, people on the Left stayed home because Hillary stole the nomination from comrade Bernie?

Your point is taken, though.

The Democrats are fractured. For every Bernie Bro there is a, ‘First Woman POTUS or bust,’ voter, or a ‘Distrust ALL white people,’ black voter or a Hispanic voter saying, ‘You couldn’t even deliver on DACA; what good are you?’

Bernie can’t run against President Trump, walk maybe, but definitely not run.

President Trump would beat Bernie like the rented mule he is.

It doesn’t matter how many Socialist’s come out and vote.
