The count is in and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is ducking for cover. This isn’t good news for him at all, but the facts are indisputable — he can’t run from the truth.
Bernie Sanders, an outspoken climate activist, “spent more on private jet travel in three months than his closest competitors in the Democratic presidential race,” reported the Washington Examiner.
According to public filings, Sanders’ campaign “spent $1.2 million on private jet travel” from October through December, while Joe Biden’s campaign logged $1 million over the same time period.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came in third with $721,000 in spending. For three candidates who can’t stop talking about the evils of climate change, this couldn’t be more hypocritical.
But it is especially hypocritical of Sanders, who sponsored the Green New Deal alongside his socialist counterpart in the House, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Given Sanders’ belief in manmade climate change, you would think that spending over $1 million on private jet travel in just three months would be out of the question — but apparently elections are exempt from his stated principles.
