The events today prove that Bernie is the best candidate for President

While he has addressed ISIS and the need for gun control many times, he is not letting those issues dominate his overall message. He's managing to balance those things with other issues like income inequality, racial justice, healthcare, education, etc. A President has the responsibility of addressing *all* issues brought to the table, not just what is in the media news cycle at any given moment. Bernie is proving, without a doubt, that he is more than capable of handling the vigor of executive office and will never let the media or anyone other than his constituents drive his agenda.

4. Exactly. #blackLivesMatter. That's right. So what exactly are we going to do about it?

 

We need a focus on these issues right away.

6. When you have Black grand daughters, you can tell me what I believe

Until then, just don't talk. And by the way, no one is stupid enough to believe that poor Bernie is being condemned for working with the AA community in Baltimore. He is being hammered for saying "I'll talk to the press but only about what I want to talk about." But, you keep trying.

7. No, that's *exactly* what this is about.

 

He wanted to talk about AA communities and bring their issues to the forefront. All the media wants to do is talk about ISIS. The needs of the people cannot be ignored in the face of tragedy and fear.

And btw, I have black family members. Do I have the right to talk now?

16. You are wrong, and beyond ridiculous.

Please respond with viable claims and not inane rhetoric.

"Talk to your tag team" is a ludicrous response when someone states that their family members are of the AA community.

Are you channeling trump and trying to divide people up? If not, please explain yourself because what you are saying is insanely deprespectful and you should be ashamed.

8. These issues are going to be totally crowded out by terror talk unless we fight for space

 

What should have happened here? He wants to focus on issues facing the city, in this case Baltimore. He should let the whole thing be derailed by ISIS questions? No I don't think so. We have to make space for talking about poverty and getting control of the economic situation.

21. No, that's EXACTLY what your team is doing.

First he's racist, because even though his main message is economic issues that disproportionately affect minorities, he's not speaking specifically enough to social justice issues. Any observation that he actually has a long history of social justice advocacy, and he's "whitesplaining", and who cares if he marched with MLK anyway.

So now he's meeting with AA leaders, and what are we hearing? He should be talking about ISIS.

That is the DEFINITION of moving the goalposts.

22. Which he never said....

what he's being 'hammered' for is the desperate hope of keeping Hillary in front of him. Nothing else.

I find it rather sad.

13. Nice meme

 

Except it's not truthful. Not only does Bernie talk about ISIS regularly, but he makes sure to include income inequality, racial justice, healthcare, education, and a host of other issues.

next month, or next year. Not blowing in the wind like Hillary...

...rather than an empty slogan like "I'm ready for Bernie!" or "It's his turn!"
