And by anything, I really mean it. I don't mean that he is just wrong, or that he is a Socialist, or that his policies are bad. I mean he has no idea about how the law works, how the justice system works, no clue about basic economics, not even a clue about how Socialism works. His answers aren't just dodgey vague, they're nonexistent. He doesn't just say the wrong thing, he ultimately says NOTHING at all. He says things are bad and then makes a vague promise to "change" things with Federal force but has no ideological, economical, judicial, or political foundation to do anything, to propose any actual mechanisms for change, beyond just commanding it be so and wishing for it to work. I knew Sanders was bad, because I thought he was simply wrong. I had no idea he was THIS bad, that he was completely ignorant of everything, including Socialism and the basic ways the system functions in the USA, and everywhere else. Holy crap.
Below, I've quoted the first part of the interview. It is too long to post it all here. But I thought I would give you a taste of the insanity from the start of the interview where he contradicts his own statements about corporations and clearly demonstrates his complete ignorance of existent trade agreements, what they are, how they work, and even how they are formed and changed. Also, how liberals can even sense the core similarities between Trump and Sanders (not that big a difference between socialism and fascism after all) and Bernie demonstrating a total ignorance of foreign economic conditions. Link to full interview is below the quoted section.
Read on to see his totally idiotic ideas about banking and more! http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/transcript-bernie-sanders-meets-news-editorial-board-article-1.2588306
