Bernie Privately Worried That Biden Could Blow It - Report

Shifting poll numbers and the ongoing troubles of Democrat nominee Joe Biden have some worried that the party could be on the brink of another crushing loss to President Trump.
One of those who is reportedly stressing hard is failed presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a man who was the frontrunner until the DNC sprung an ambush in the primaries that screwed him out of the nomination for the second time in four years.
According to a Fox News report, Comrade Bernie has "privately" expressed concerns that Biden has no message other than "orange man bad" and dismayed that the former veep isn't focusing more on "kitchen table" issues that resonate with voters.
Sanders is also puzzled as to why lunchbucket Joe hasn't sought out the help of social media rock star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her army of young drones on the campaign trail.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders has privately voiced worries about the way Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been campaigning as the race heads into its final weeks, according to a report.
Sanders, who dropped out of the race in April and immediately endorsed Biden following a hard-fought Democratic primary battle last spring, has said he wishes Biden would focus more on kitchen table issues like higher wages, job growth and health care access in campaign stops rather than criticizing President Trump, the Washington Post reported, citing three sources familiar with his conversations.
Sanders, who garnered a youth movement around his two White House runs, also hoped that Biden would embrace progressive firebrands like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., more closely in an effort to gather more support from young voters. Ocasio-Cortez stumped for Sanders during his run.
Ironically, Bernie's own calls for a socialist revolution have contributed largely to Biden's recent troubles with Marxist-inspired young people using the focus on Black Lives Matter and racial grievances as an exo-skeleton for their own communist insurrection.
The longer that the riots and violence have dragged on with Biden's refusal to denounce them, the more voters have been driven to President Trump who has made it clear that he is on the side of law and order.
A spokesman for Sanders released a statement to the Washington Post on Biden's failure to craft an appeal to ordinary Americans, especially those who have been hit hard by the Democrat lockdowns.
Via The Hill, "Sanders pushes Biden to focus more on wages, health care":
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is pushing Joe Biden’s presidential campaign to expand its appeal to liberal voters and boost its focus on kitchen table issues in the final sprint to Election Day.
Sanders, a progressive leader and former 2020 presidential candidate, has been advocating for Biden to put a greater emphasis on issues such as workers' wages and health care coverage, a former campaign aide says.
The Vermont senator “is working as hard as he can to help Joe Biden win the most important election in modern American history” but has said there are areas he thinks the former vice president's campaign can “continue to improve upon,” Faiz Shakir, the senator’s former campaign manager, said in a statement.
The statement was first reported by The Washington Post and later shared with The Hill.
"He has been in direct contact with the Biden team and has urged them to put more emphasis on how they will raise wages, create millions of good paying jobs, lower the cost of prescription drugs and expand health care coverage," Shakir said.
"He also thinks that a stronger outreach to young people, the Latino community and the progressive movement will be of real help to the campaign," Shakir said.
The Biden campaign declined to comment on the statement.
Bernie has denied the report but its more likely that he is trying to distance himself from Biden's campaign before the election by putting some distance between him and the coming train wreck.
As the saying goes, when the water reaches the upper decks, the rats run for the lifeboats.
