Bernie Sanders After Democratic Unity Tour: The Party Is Failing The Democratic Unity tour is over and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who headlined the event, had the report card: the party is failing. “I think what is clear to anyone who looks at where the Democratic Party today is that the model of the Democratic Party is failing,” he told CBS’s John Dickerson on Face The Nation. The tour was more of a showcase of disunion, with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez being booed multiple times by attendees. This pro-Bernie Sanders wing of the party wants to go further to the left, and they’re tired of the more liberal establishment not jumping on the issues that Sanders has pushed on the stump, specifically the issue of health care. Another weird aspect: Sanders isn’t even a Democrat (via CNN): "Do you consider yourself a Democrat?" host Chris Hayes asked the Vermont senator. "No, I am an independent," Sanders replied, before launching into a lengthy explanation of what ailed the party -- whose nomination he sought in 2016 -- and what it needs to do in order to reclaim power... ..."Donald Trump did not win the election -- the Democrats lost the election!" he said (again) during an event in Miami on Wednesday night. "That means rebuilding the Democratic Party, making it a grassroots party, a party from the bottom on up!"... Bernie is a socialist nutjob, but he is 100% accurate about the failing of the Democrat Party. He was also far more popular among leftists than Crooked Hillary. Thankfully, Donald J. Trump won the election thereby schlonging Hillary.
