WATCH: Bernie Sanders Admits He’s Never Passed Legislation That Helps Black People

For a man who has been in the lawmaking business for 27 years, Sanders’ record is a bit light.

Presidential hopeful and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) joined “The Breakfast Club” radio show this week to tout his record of supporting civil rights, but failed to name a single piece of legislation that he has passed to help black people.

“I don’t talk about this very often, but when I was a student in college I was a member of a group that I think no longer exists – the Congress on Racial Equality,” Sanders told host Charlamagne tha God.

“It was one of the prominent civil rights groups in the early 60’s,” he continued. “We took on segregated housing owned by the University of Chicago, we held the first sit-in demonstration ever held in the North – I got arrested for doing that. In 1963 – this does speak to my age I guess – I was at the March on Washington for jobs and freedom, where Dr. King spoke.”

Sanders also touted boasted that he was one of the few white public officials to support Jesse Jackson’s presidential run in 1988.

When asked if he could point to any specific legislation passed that helped black people, Sanders responded

“Well, legislation that, uh, benefits African Americans – not specifically,” he said. “We pass legislation that benefits working people.”

Sanders was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1991, where he held office until he was elected to the Senate in 2007. That is a total of 27 years in the legislature.

Joe Biden appeared to wave to absolutely no one as he walked off the stairway to a private jet in Florida earlier this week.

Who could he possibly be waving to?

Biden doesn’t have millions of energetic supporters who will arrive at the airport to greet him, unlike President Trump. The Democratic nominee was arriving in Tampa, Florida, for a few scripted campaign events in the swing state where new polling reveals he’s losing the Hispanic demographic to President Trump, an unprecedented demographic swing in the recent history of the state’s elections.

There appear to be a few airport employees in the distance, but they seem to be facing the other way.

Biden’s campaign team called a ‘lid’ on his day of active campaigning on Saturday… at the ripe hour of 8:35 in the morning.

This is quite concerning. A President should be cognitively sharp and acutely aware of his surroundings. Biden’s latest gaffe appears to do little more than raise even more questions about his mental acuity.
