Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is emerging as a potential frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic nomination for President after winning the New Hampshire primary and virtually tying with South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in a chaotic Iowa caucus last week.

It's no surprise then that Sanders is a frequent target of Fox News hosts—most recently, from Mark Levin on BlazeTV's LevinTV.


Levin accused Sanders of being racist because he...lives in Vermont?

Watch below.

After accusing Sanders of never changing a tire (?), Levin said:

"This is a man born in Brooklyn, New York. Where does he wind up? In Vermont," Levin said. "He talks about this society being racist from the top to the bottom, racist throughout. Why did he choose Vermont? Why does he live in Vermont? Why didn't he choose another place? Why didn't he pick any of these really tough majority-minority towns? Why didn't he pick them? Because he's racist from top to bottom. That's why."

For his part, Levin is a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, who frequently retweets his takes in return.

Sanders was an activist during the Civil Rights Movement in his college years and, like many Democrats, has advocated for anti-racist policies throughout his career.

People gleefully skewered Levin's bizarre claim.







Levin will have to do better than that.

The administration has long sought to add a citizenship question, despite warnings that it could result in underreporting of the population and the targeting of immigrants.

According to reporting from The Tampa Bay Times, Republican party is once again using the census to bolster its interests.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.

President Donald Trump has made no effort to keep his thoughts on the trial of his former advisor, Roger Stone, a secret.

Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and threatening a witness last year. When prosecutors recommended a seven to nine year prison sentence, Trump fumed on Twitter and the Justice Department subsequently overrode the opinion of its prosecutors, who resigned in response.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?
