Bernie Sanders makes global warming and inequality worse by spending his campaign donations on private jets

Bernie Sanders has repeatedly spoken out against global warming and income inequality.

However, I just came across this Politico article from last year:

In his campaign launch video last week, Bernie Sanders singled out the fossil fuel industry for criticism, listing it among the special interests he planned to take on. But in the final months of the 2016 campaign, Sanders repeatedly requested and received the use of a carbon-spewing private jet for himself and his traveling staff when he served as a surrogate campaigner for Hillary Clinton.

In the two years following the presidential election, Sanders continued his frequent private jet travel, spending at least $342,000 on the flights.

Increased scrutiny of his travel practices, which are at odds with his positions on wealth inequality and climate change, are among the challenges Sanders will face as he makes his second White House run.

Actions speak louder than words.

Sanders’ use of private jets proves that he’s lying when he says he’s against global warming and income inequality.

Here are some of my other blog posts about Bernie Sanders:

Bernie Sanders said it’s a “good thing” when people have to wait in line for food. Meanwhile, in the real world, this is what it’s actually like to wait in line for food in Venezuela.

Bernie Sanders wants to do the same things to the U.S. that Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro did to Venezuela

The only way that rich people could pay Bernie Sanders’s proposed annual 8% wealth tax would be by selling enough stock to get the money to pay the tax. This would drive down stock prices, and would hurt every single middle class person who has a pension, a 401K, or an IRA.

Bernie will be lucky too have enough time left to even see the election and doesn’t have enough brain cells left to understand what is going to happen.

Bernie will only be a footnote in history.

Think about it.

The Democrats are pathetic beyond belief.

The idiots listed above have very extensive record.
Trump has a record now although its short in time its phenomenal.
When compared to those losers it’s unbelievable they would even look Trump in the eye.

As a Republican, I disagree that private jets make global warming and inequality worse.

Of course, neither one is true, but it's great to see him hoist on his own petard. He's a grifter and despicable demagogue and parasite.
