Sanders condemns his sexist supporters

Sanders condemns his sexist supporters February 7, 2016


The “Bernie Bro” is a term that refers to the men who support Bernie Sanders while attacking Hilary Clinton with sexist comments. Yes, these guys are a minority, but they are vocal and make Sanders look bad. In a recent interview Bernie Sanders completely renounced the sexist people or “Bernie Bros” supporting him: 

“I have heard about it. It’s disgusting. Look, we don’t want that crap. … We will do everything we can and I think we have tried. Look, anybody who is supporting me that is doing the sexist things is — we don’t want them. I don’t want them. That is not what this campaign is about.”

This was really great to see. While there may not be too many “Bernie Bros” out there, they still make a lot of noise and Bernie totally threw them under the bus due to their sexism. Hopefully they can learn something from the man they so vigorously support. #FeelTheBern
