Whoopi Goldberg presses Sanders: 'Why are you still in the race?'

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday questioned Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) over his decision to continue campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Goldberg pressed Sanders over his remarks this week that he sees a "narrow path" to the nomination, with the host saying the senator's decision reminded her of the 2016 primary.

Sanders continued to campaign in 2016 after Hillary Clinton secured enough delegates to clinch the nomination. The senator eventually backed her White House bid and campaigned for her.

“I’m told you intend to stay in this race for president because you believe there is a path to victory," Goldberg told Sanders on Wednesday.

"I want to know what that path is because this feels a little bit like it did when you didn’t come out when Hillary Clinton was clearly the person folks were going for,” she added.

Sanders maintained “that’s not quite accurate,” adding he "worked as hard as I could for Hillary Clinton."

But Goldberg pushed back, saying while he did eventually support Clinton it took him “a very, very long time to hop in, and your people also took a very long time for them to hop in.”

"Why are you still in the race?" she pressed.

2. Because "people have a right to vote"? What the fuck?

 

No one is taking away anyone's right to vote.

Guess what... I didn't get to vote for my candidate of choice because why????????? Because she dropped out. No one took away my right to vote, I just had to vote for someone else.

I fucking hate his ego.

HIM, NOT US.

Not believing anything different until he proves it different.

3. 'Bernie' Flat Lies About Supporting Mrs. Clinton, Ma'am

 

He did not do what he had to do to be an effective campaigner for her in 2016. He needed to apologize. He needed to say he was wrong, that there was no basis whatever for the smears of 'rigged election' and 'corruption' his campaign leveled against Mrs. Clinton. He need to tell his supporters unequivocally to stand down at the convention, and to ask the credentials of those delegates of his who disrupted be revoked, and the disruptors be expelled. He needed, when he made campaign speeches, to speak only of Mrs. Clinton, and what a fine President she would be, rather than simply trim his stump speech with a few compliments, and proceed to boasting aout his 'success' in the primaries and how he was the future of the Party.

'Bernie' of course could not do any of this. He still lives in the 'chicks make coffee and worship radical warriors' mindset he acquired as a young college Marxist. The very idea of 'Bernie' apologizing to a woman, of taking a backseat to a woman, acknowledging a woman beat him fair and square....


"Your attitude is noticed! Oh, yes, it is noticed!"





"From Bernie’s perspective, dropping out of a race once you have no chance of winning is peculiar behavior that can only be explained by the work of a hidden hand. For most politicians, though, it is actually standard operating procedure. Only Sanders seems to think the normal thing to do once voters have made clear they don’t want to nominate you is to continue campaigning anyway."





"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."

21. "Chicks make coffee..." Out of that kind of attitude sprang 2nd wave feminism, I can tell you...

 

Classical Marxism with its one-size-fits-all worldview has not aged well for people who matured and noticed that every group has different needs, distinct to their own situation.

Women and POC and LGBTQ are not recalcitrant square pegs to be pounded into round holes by those who believe they know better than we. One thing that has kept me in the Democratic Party all these years is that Democrats keep trying to get it right by recognizing how our differences need to be acknowledged as we move on.

10. Whoopi's sense of what happened in 2016 matches mine.

 

As the Fall campaign was in full boil, I wondered where Sanders was. He finally showed up sporadically in October.

Bernie Sanders has a perfect right to stay in the race. Now more than ever his Medicare for all message is exactly what is needed.

27. Well...

 

... Bennie and Biden are older men. Bernie may be thinking there is a chance one of the might have a health problem. Bernie has had one... overcome, happily. But there many be another... and Bernie feels if Biden has one, Bernie should become the nominee.

Personally, I don't think the delegates will necessarily support Bernie, but he may...
