Is Bernie Sanders Tweeting The GOP Debate On CNN? Yes, & We Couldn't Be Happier
If the debate is getting too tedious for you, at least it's nice that we have Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders tweeting during the GOP debate. The 74-year-old senator became the unofficial winner of the debate for his sarcastic coverage back in September during an earlier GOP debate, which he did under the hashtag #DebateWithBernie, weighing in on topics such as wealth inequality, tuition, and representation of minorities. So when it comes to the CNN GOP debate Tuesday, I'm nearly as interested in a repeat live tweeting performance as I am in the debate itself. With that said, we're in luck, since it looks like Bernie Sanders is live-tweeting the debate.
Sanders has already chimed in on the debate with his signature mix of sarcasm and criticism. Similar to the last GOP Debate, which was the first time Sanders took to Twitter to live-tweet a debate, the Democratic party nominee is sharing his thoughts policies, the candidate, and the overall vibe of the night. (Which, I might add, has been made more enjoyable by having Bernie following along.)
Here's what he's saying about the fifth GOP debate of 2015, held in Vegas, which features nine prime-time candidates, with front-runner Trump taking center stage, and CNN host Wolf Blitzer.
Repeat after me: We must combat anti-Muslim bigotry and all forms of discrimination in our country and in our world. #GOPDebate— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
We will not destroy ISIS by undermining our civil liberties and religious freedoms. #GOPDebate— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
A lot of talk about war. No talk about the 500,000 men and women who came home with PTSD, and traumatic brain injury. #GOPDebate— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
What’s reckless is turning our backs on the refugees who are fleeing Syria and Afghanistan. #GOPDebate— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
Let’s stop the racism. Let’s stop the xenophobia. Let's stop Trump: https://t.co/9e8QYbqgdm— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
Fifth #GOPDebate is over. Like the first, not one word about income inequality, climate change, or racial justice. The Rs are out of touch.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) December 16, 2015
Clearly Bernie doesn't have a problem speaking his mind, whether he's out on the campaign road or watching another GOP debate.
