After getting cucked by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as a whole; Breadline-Bernie accepts his consolation prize in the form of an expensive summer home located in North Hero, Vermont.
According to Vermont local news, Bernie Sanders and his wife, known for frivolously spending other people’s money, forked out $600K for their modest second home:
The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a camp in North Hero.
Sanders’ new waterfront crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island — facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally.
“We’ve traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips,” Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, told Seven Days in a written statement. “We’ve been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.”
Sanders, who’s never held a real job, struck a cord with millennials and the impoverished over the last two years with his “progressive” policies involving free-stuff, ignorance of basic math, and cries of “fuck you, dad!”. He is also notable for breaking records in small donations for his presidential campaign.
In fact, Bernie “My-Son-Doesn’t-Call-Me-Dad” Sanders has raised over $100 million dollars from small donors after 2 years aggressively campaigning in minority communities and claiming to fight the top one-percent.
His ability to pander to the disenfranchised and irresponsible has been key to his success and the numbers show it. Fortune reports that Bernie Sanders has even raised $16 million from unemployed voters, which may tell you something. Sanders was still aggressively fundraising his campaign up until the Democratic National Convention, despite being mathematically eliminated. Even with the DNC email leaks proving that the primaries were rigged against him from the start.
It seems as though Bernie Sanders has run the greatest scam in presidential history. A failed senator with hardly any signed bills took the American youth for a ride. He made off with tax-payer money in the form of unemployment cheques and got a nice a beach house out of it to boot.
Looks like he didn’t have to become president to get his socialist paradise after all.
