SPOILER ALERT: Bernie Sanders Has a Really Weird Idea for ‘Avengers’

We’d much rather hear solutions than soundbites, and that’s something that Bernie Sanders hasn’t quite grasped. 

Standing side by side with Hillary Clinton was good for Bernie Sanders.

Sure, she completely robbed him of the 2016 primary with help from her friends in the DNC, but Hillary’s exquisite insanity somehow made Sanders look tame.  Bernie simply needed to be in the same news cycle as Hillary Clinton in order to maintain his faux-stoic visage, because for every wild idea Sanders proffered to the public, Clinton had some despicable Deep State scam to overshadow it.

Now, with Sanders having spent time as a frontrunner in the 2020 election, (just until Joe Biden officially announced), we have had a lot more exposure to Bernie unhinged.  His recent admission that he would like to see voting rights restored for incarcerated felons, including terrorists, was just one such nonsensical tangent.

Sen.Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday called on Disney to use profits from its “Avengers: Endgame” record-breaking opening weekend to pay all employees “a middle class wage.”

The Vermont senator and presidential candidate linked to a Bloomberg article on the superhero film’s opening weekend box office returns, an all-time high of $1.2 billion worldwide.

“What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million — over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes,” Sanders tweeted.

Income inequality is undoubtedly going to be one of the foremost issues in the 2020 election, regardless of whether Bernie powers through the primaries, but this isn’t exactly the sort of uninformed opinion on the subject that we want to see next November.

We’d much rather hear solutions than soundbites, and that’s something that Bernie Sanders hasn’t quite grasped.
