Senator Bernie Sanders issued a blunt assessment of the likelihood that a Trump presidency will be anything but an unmitigated disaster.
“I would not say that there’s any silver lining in Trump’s victory. It is scary, and I think there are many, many people throughout this country who are very frightened about what will happen over the next four years. So I don’t see any silver lining.”
Bernie’s statement comes at an important time, as establishment democrats and traditional media appear to be bending over backwards to excuse the extreme rhetoric and far right appointments made by president elect Trump.
