Bernie Gets Gleefully Photoshopped
Bernie Sanders, thank God, is still here, and still speaking up for what's right. Yesterday, he took to the Senate floor during a health care debate to lambast the deranged toddler-elect for (surprise!) lying about how he'd never ever cut Medicare and Medicaid benefits, which he's now (surprise again!) talking about doing. Bernie brought a prop to his presentation: A huge poster of one of Trump's own bullshit tweets. Dated May 2015, it reads, “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid."
Noted Bernie, “Millions of people voted for him on the belief that he would keep his word,” said Bernie. "If he was sincere, then I would hope that tomorrow or maybe today he could send out a tweet and tell his Republican colleagues to stop wasting their time and all of our time" - and either not cut benefits, or admit his pathological tendency to say whatever it took to win so hugely he could think people liked him. Either because so many people are T grateful to see Bernie - oh rare lucidity - back/still on the national scene, or because they were so delighted by the spectacle of Bernie trolling the Orange One with his own stupid words, the Internet went berserk devising alternative, often profane, suitably demented visual aids. They created memes, a photoshop contest, and a website to easily insert personal favorites. For once, good times.
