Bernie Sanders’ campaign for President has been a slow moving train wreck for months.
But the Vermont Senator just took things up to 11.
What he said about this Muslim terrorist automatically disqualified himself from ever becoming President.
Bernie Sanders is well known for his ridiculous comments and policy positions.
But the Vermont Senator took things to a whole new level this week when he spoke out in favor of granting voting rights to prison inmates.
And not just any inmates.
The Boston Bomber.
In a town hall hosted by CNN, the Vermont Senator was asked a question about where he stood on voting rights, especially for felons, ex-felons, and prison inmates.
And what he said stunned the audience and the rest of the country.
Fox News reports, “President Trump’s re-election campaign fired back Wednesday at Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for arguing that convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and other violent criminals should be allowed to vote from prison, calling the idea “deeply offensive.””
“The extremity and radicalism of the 2020 Democrats knows no bounds,” Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News.
“Giving imprisoned terrorists, sex offenders, and murderers the right to vote is an outrageous proposal that is deeply offensive to innocent victims across this country, some of whom lost their lives and are forever disenfranchised by the very killers that 2020 Democrats seek to empower.”
Sanders was asked a simple question at a CNN town hall about voting rights.
And he ended up giving the most outrageous answer ever.
“During a CNN town hall on Monday night, a Harvard student asked Sanders if his position on expanding voting rights to felons in prison would support “enfranchising people” like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as well as those “convicted of sexual assault,” whose votes could have a “direct impact on women’s rights.”,” added Fox News.
Sanders then endorsed letting even terrorists, rapists, and murderers vote from prison, even if their votes impact the victims they created through their actions.
“But, I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” Sanders said. “Yes, even for terrible people.”
This policy position is so outside the mainstream, it’s amazing that Sanders didn’t seem to realize the Trump campaign would immediately use it against him.
But the Vermont Senator is doubling down on the radical proposal.
And that’s not going to end well for his presidential ambitions.
Americans aren’t going to elect someone on a platform of giving voting rights to the Boston Bomber.
And they’re not going to support someone who thinks that rapists and murderers in prison need to be given the right to vote.
Sanders doesn’t seem to think that there are some Americans who can’t vote at all because they’ve been killed by people in prison.
There’s no way to restore their voting rights, but he still wants to give murderers the right to elect public officials.
Do you think the Boston Bomber shouldn’t be allowed to vote from his prison cell?
