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.

Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) came under fire last month after news broke that she sold millions of dollars of stocks after a senators-only briefing on the virus that's caused a global pandemic. This was just before the stock market plummeted by thousands of points in the face of uncertainty in the national health crisis.

Loeffler also invested in Citrix, a telework software company, just before millions of Americans began working from home.

But she wasn't done yet.

During the global pandemic, unemployment has ballooned in the United States.

Not only do those people need unemployment benefits, which Congress addressed in the relief package created in the Democratically controlled House of Representatives, but many also lost their health insurance with their jobs.

The pandemic that thrust the United States into a national health crisis was repeatedly dismissed by President Donald Trump during its early stages, when prevention was most feasible.

Trump ignored simulations and intelligence briefings that warned the United States was not prepared for a pandemic. Then, the first US cases began getting diagnosed.

The Hernando County Sheriff's office arrested Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne last week after the Trump devotee ignored orders forbidding gatherings of more than ten people. Howard-Browne continued to hold services at his massive Florida church, potentially spreading the virus that's caused a national health crisis in the United States.

The pastor had told congregants that the church had installed vents which kill all diseases. He also encouraged them to shake hands.

After years of boasting about his economy, President Donald Trump now claims that increased market instability and skyrocketing unemployment due to the global pandemic couldn't have been predicted or prevented.

This is constantly proving to be untrue.
