Is Bernie running against Obama?
He *-did* call for Obama to be primaried in 2012.
Running against Hillary AND Obama may be a tactical error and suggests that Sanders would not be a healing figure.
Also, if Sanders' surrogates are pushing these narratives, it's at his behest.
Also, just for the record, because I covered 2008, there were 240k at Obama's victory speech.
I know math was an issue for Sanders' team in 2016, but the crowd for #BernieInChicago was equivalent to a concert venue. Still big. But not huge.
Also, 250,000 were at the #WomensMarch in Chicago on January 21, 2017. Which was in response to #HillaryClinton being denied the presidency and Trump being elevated by the Electoral College.

Facts do matter.
Let's work with those through 2020.
