Bernie Sanders’ base is catching a whiff of something that they don’t like, as familiar as the odor may be.
It seems that in 2020, as it was in 2016, Bernie may be getting cheated out of his chance at the Democratic nomination. Twitter was on fire today, after thousands of the Vermont Senator’s supporters took to social media to express their frustration at the treatment their candidate received at the hands of host network CNN.
This debate was an alternative universe crafted by the ruling class to derail Sanders. I hope there are enough people to see through this baloney.
That his “friend” Liz Warren would play a role in this manipulative scenario is deeply disturbing. pic.twitter.com/7PBwLMV8UM

Well the only thing I know to do to combat the bullshit I just witnessed at the #DemDebate and its aftermath is a big, juicy donation to #Bernie2020 so that's what I did. #CNNisTrash pic.twitter.com/jgquINW17S

The outrage was sparked by CNN’s treatment of a question regarding the allegations that Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in 2018 that “a woman can’t win” in 2020, with a great many of Sanders’ flock believing that the news network unduly sided with Warren.
This comes only a day after a Sanders campaign field organizer named Kyle Jurek was seen threatening violence on hidden camera video should Sander be cheated out of the nomination again.
“If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f***ing Milwaukee will burn,” Jurek warned. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when they f***ing, when the police push back on that, other cities will just f***ing (blow up sound).”
“The cops are going be the ones that are getting f***ing beating in Milwaukee,” he added.
Both the Warren allegation and the Jurek threat coincide with a surging in the polls for Sanders, just ahead of the Iowa caucuses, set to take place at the beginning of February.
