Bernie Bros are not happy to rally behind presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
As BizPac Review reports, one of his supporters even described supporting Biden as eating “from a bowl of s**t.”
Nina Turner, the co-chair for Bernie Sanders‘ 2020 presidential campaign, said backing President Trump was not a choice for her but Biden was nearly just as bad.
“It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of sh*t in front of you. And all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing,” Turner told the Atlantic. “It’s still sh*t.”
BizPac Review adds:
Turner has repeatedly criticized President Trump, so her diss of him isn’t surprising.
However, Turner echoed the sentiments of Bernie supporters, many of whom have vowed that they will never vote for Biden.
After the Democrat Party rigged the 2016 primary election in Hillary Clinton’s favor, many Bernie fans were so enraged that they either voted for Donald Trump out of spite or didn’t vote at all.
The same dynamic could play out this year. In fact, some Bernie Bros demanded that Biden drop out after his former aide, Tara Reade, accused him of raping her.
Turner was not alone in criticizing Biden as fellow Bernie Sanders supporter Cornel West, who is a Harvard University professor, said Biden represents the very type of Democrat Sanders’ branch of the Democratic Party is trying to get out of office.
“We have to be true to ourselves and acknowledge that Biden is a mediocre, milquetoast, neoliberal centrist that we’ve been fighting against in the Democratic establishment,” he said via the Atlantic.
