Bernie Sanders SHREDS The Media Over Their Obsession With Howard Schultz


Yesterday on CBS this morning, Bernie Sanders
announced that he is running for president of the United States. But everybody already knew that, right? We, we knew that he made the announcement. We saw that he raised over $4 million in a
single day. And we know that a lot of people are excited. There’s also a lot of establishment types
that are super pissed off that he’s running. But nonetheless, in his interview on CBS this
morning, he did something that I had been waiting for any candidate to do and it was
absolutely phenomenal to see somebody called a media out like this and what he did. And we’ll show you the clip. And just a second, he called out the media
for their obsession with billionaire, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. Take a look. He would not run as an independent if the
Democrats moderate, uh, nice. But you raise a good thing. Why is, how would Schultz on every television
solution in this country? Why are you quoting Howard Schultz? Because he was a billionaire. All right. There are a lot of people I know personally
who work hard for a living and make 40 $50,000 a year. We know a lot more about politics than role
do respect us, Mr. Schultz, but because we have a corrupt political system, anybody who
was a billionaire who can throw a lot of TV ads on television suddenly becomes very, very
credible. So what Mr Schultz, what is he blackmailing
the Democratic Party? If you don’t nominate Bernie Sanders, he’s
locking to run. Well, I don’t think we should succumb to that
kind of blackmail. The other reason is that he represents an
argument that some people make, which is if you’re worried about Donald Trump, the democratic
party to win voters in various parts of the country needs to pick somebody who is
not so radical. That’s also what his theory rail, I think
is deeper theory is, Hey, I’m a billionaire. Leave me alone and let me make as much money
as I can without paying my fair share of taxes and let me continue to have undue political
fluids, which you weren’t putting me. All right, here’s a billion or no one’s ever
heard of this guy or not many people have you used the billionaire is thinking of running
for president. Something is a very famous guy that’s, that
is a problem with our political system. Everything that Sanders said in that clip
is 100% accurate. The media is absolutely obsessed with Howard
Schultz and why as Bernie says, the guy has no policy experience. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. All he does is have a lot of money in the
bank and so the network’s eat it up like, oh, you’ve got a lot of money. You must have a lot to say, oh, you have a
lot of money. You must be super intelligent and we should
give you a fricking town hall in primetime like CNN did and they’re only doing it because
he has money. He has nothing of value to say. He has nothing of substance to say. He has nothing to add to the political discourse
here in the United States. He just doesn’t want his taxes to go up. And Bernie Sanders was 100% correct to call
him out on that and to call out the media for their disgusting obsession with this guy
who hasn’t even said he is officially running for president yet, but the coverage that he
is God and has been absolutely horrendous. Nobody cares about Howard Schultz out here
in the public. It’s the corporate media that continues to
try to stuff him down our throats. And I don’t know how many more bad poll numbers
need to come out before these corporate media networks get the message that we, the American
public, do not like and do not want him to run. We don’t want to ever see Howard Schultz on
our TVs again. He’s only been around for a few weeks and
we’re absolutely sick of him. That’s the message that the media needs to
receive. They need to stop pushing Howard Schultz,
stop giving him a platform because he has nothing to say. He’s just another greedy billionaire that
doesn’t want to have to pay a little bit more in taxes.
