Bernie Sanders Responds to Trump’s Speech to Congress
The media seems impressed that Trump got through his speech relatively calmly. The BBC loved it. It was cheap, nasty and terrifying. You want to cut services but ramp up police and military spending? Show ‘em a disabled woman, a widow, a grieving father, a high-achieving black student, and follow those up with dog whistles to all the non-disabled, non-minority, gung-ho and anti-science diehards. It was a crass bit of staging and the positive response is pathetically shallow.
Sanders here highlights how far Trump really stands from his few likeable campaign promises.
