Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took it on the chin during a stop in New Hampshire after a voter called him out for his flip-flop on mass immigration.
Before Sanders began running for president, he opposed open borders and mass immigration because he knew it would drive wages for American workers down. He capitulated to win radicalized Democrat voters on the campaign trail, and the so-called people’s champion threw U.S. workers under the bus.
“I’m here because you seem like one of the most authentic candidates running right now so I wanted to hear what you had to say and how authentic you really are, and by the way, nobody believes for a minute that you told Elizabeth Warren that a woman can’t…make it for President,” a woman named Christine said to Sanders, explaining that she is a swing voter who has voted Republican and Democrat in the past.
“So one issue you have not been consistent on is open borders,” she continued. “When you first ran, you said it was a Koch Brothers scheme, and seemed to recognize that low-wage workers being dumped into the country does not help low-wage workers.”
“Can you explain why you changed on that issue? Did you to have to change because the donors seem to want the low-wage workers?” she asked.
Sanders responded by talking out of both sides of his mouth.
“What I believe in absolutely is I don’t believe in open borders. If open borders, anybody can come from any place in the world. There is no country in the history of the world, I think, that has ever had that view. That is not my view,” Sanders responded.
He went off track from there, explaining globalist economic dogma about how prices would skyrocket if Trump deported illegal immigrants.
“We have 11 million undocumented here. Many of those workers by the way are being exploited right now. Trump wants to throw everybody out of the country. If he threw out people out of the country, the price of food in this country would skyrocket. Who do you think is picking the crops and planting all over this country?” Sanders said.
He then outlined his policy to give amnesty to illegal aliens and prevent ICE from being able to enforce immigration law.

Sanders wasn’t always this way. He used to go on Lou Dobbs and talk with the patriotic talk show host about why mass immigration harms the American worker.
This video of Sanders talking to Dobbs on CNN from 2007 seems straight out of bizarro world in the current political landscape:
This questioner nailed Sanders on his hypocrisy and exposed Sanders’ Achilles heel if he becomes the Democrat nominee and takes on President Trump in 2020.
Ilhan Omar Says She Believes Biden Committed Sexual Assault, But Will Vote For Him Anyway
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has stated publicly that she believes Tara Reade, a former staffer for presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden who has alleged he sexually assaulted her, but will vote for Biden despite the fact that she thinks he is a predator.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” Omar wrote in a tweet attempting to express solidarity for Reade while shilling for Biden.
“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on,” Omar wrote in a subsequent Twitter post.
She also talked about her stance in favor of voting for a man she believes is a sexual predator during an interview with The Sunday Times.
“There’s a lot of unsavory stuff. It is troubling, I do believe Tara Reade, I believe it’s important for us to give space for women to come forward and share their stories. It takes years and years for sexual assault survivors to come forward. Justice can be delayed but it should never be denied,” Omar said.
“If considerations [over the candidate] were something I had influence over, just candidly here, we’d probably have a different candidate,” she added – making it clear that Biden is not a candidate she finds particularly desirable.
Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) expressed a similar opinion that she would vote for a man she believes committed sexual assault because of her hatred for Trump.
“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House,” Pressley wrote.
Reade has come forward in recent weeks to accuse Biden of victimizing her in 1993 when he was a Senator and she worked under him:
Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.
Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”
“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”
Reade’s allegations are yet to be proven by hard evidence, but this situation has certainly exposed the incredible hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault claims.
