Watching the Democratic debate last night was like watching a battle royal. Everyone landed and began firing off with whatever weapons they had in their arsenal causing no shortage of angry moments and hurt feelings.
The one in particular that caught my attention was the strike by former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg on Vermont’s socialist senator Bernie Sanders. The strike was directly on Sanders’ socialism, and it’s hit that Sanders really didn’t appreciate.
Bloomberg noted that America’s most well-known socialist has three houses, and Sanders immediately and angrily went into defensive mode, listing off that the reason he has three houses is that he has one in Vermont where he lives, DC where he works, and like many Vermontians, has a summer camp.
