On Wed, saw a clip of Sanders at the student protest & voiced criticism of his appearance. A Berner sent me a link to the entire event, convinced I’d be “inspired” by him and OMG. It was So. Much. Worse. than I realized. 1/
In brief: MOC come down the Capitol steps en masse to join the students “in solidarity” at the bottom of the steps. There’s a planned program they follow, alternating btw students and the MOC most closely aligned w gun regulation … Pelosi, Schumer, MOC from FL & CT, etc. 2/
As Rep Elizabeth Esty (Sandy Hook’s district) is speaking, she’s *interrupted* by BS in his bright white parka, making a spectacle, coming from *the back* of the crowd, flanked by several police officers clearing the way for him as he makes his way to the stage. 3/
BS gets up, says a few words, and then leaves, flanked by the officers, the same way he came, out through the back of the crowd. Didn’t join his fellow MOC. Didn’t listen to a single student speak. Esty picks up from where BS interrupted her and the program continues. 4/
It was a shocking display of ego. My bet is Dem leaders chose which MOC would speak and BS wasn’t on the list cuz, you know, not a great history on gun legislation. He got miffed and decided to carefully choreograph his own entrance. 5/
Berners were ecstatic at the reception he got from some of the students but OMG, from top to bottom, he was such a complete a**hole. To Esty, to his colleagues, to the students, to their cause. No decent person would have done that. Watch it yourself. 6/6
