Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has always slammed people who are successful and enjoy wealth and the lifestyle it facilitates and that it is not right that they have more than the folks who are not successful and have fewer assets as a result — rhetoric that was ramped up when he was a candidate in the 2016 presidential campaign. But recent reports by the media in his home state and also national reports reveal that while Sanders is not among his most-hated category of the top 1% of the nation’s wealthiest, he is not one of the less fortunate or even the Middle Class. “Thanks in large part to his successful foray into authorship, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made more than $1 million in 2016,” the Vermont outlet Seven Days reported. “That’s according to his latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure, which he filed Sunday after receiving a 20-day extension.” The Seven Days piece, published on Sunday and written by political columnist John Walters, states that a large chunk of that income came from a $795,000 advance for his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” Sanders also got $63,750 for an upcoming book, “Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution,” a publication aimed at young readers and co-authored with Kate Waters, according to Seven Days. And Sanders received $6,735 in royalties for his 1997 memoir “Outsider in the House,” Seven Days reported. “That’s more than $865,000 for peddling his working-class ideas,” Walters wrote. “Not bad.”
And this is just last year we’re talking about, folks! Crazy ol’ Bernie actually made a LOT more last year, but it’s uncertain exactly how much more. It’s funny seeing these zombie millennials’ heads explode when they learn their savior is a millionaire. Bernie, like all the other self-righteous, sanctimonious, extreme liberal (and in his case, an even admitted socialist!)…are all a bunch of millionaire hypocrites. Anyway..
