    Great times tonight with our state director They are building a really strong operation in the Granite State.
  • I enjoy being a House District 9 Democrat and I think our district has a great Democratic legislator in . I’m obviously not biased on this point. Obviously.
  • Psyched that is coming here to Colorado
  •   Retweeted
    At the Guardian we deplore the outrageous attack on Owen Jones that took place late last night. Violent assaults on journalists or activists have no place in a democratic society
  •   Retweeted
    Bernie’s supporters are younger, more female and less white than any other Democratic presidential candidate’s. The conventional (Twitter) wisdom about ‘Bernie Bros’ is all wrong. Surprise (!)
  • Counterpoint: this health care industry lobbying group’s corporate members make huge profits from the current corporate-run system, which creates a rate “of uninsurance (that) leads to more than 35,000 unnecessary deaths every year.” Source:

    Three years of unchallenged MSNBC and twitter influencer conventional wisdom turns out to be completely wrong, exactly like a handful of leftists have been saying. 👋
  • A new study finds "every major news organization covering healthcare policy routinely uses (the) insurance industry’s framing to define Medicare for All.” Read more in BERN NOTICE, the campaign's new newsletter - please subscribe & retweet!

    It's almost as if the narrative about Bernie supporters for the last 4 years was...completely wrong.
  •   Retweeted
    You’re welcome, for the moment.
  • The account is one of my favorite follows — and I believe every government agency’s account should emulate it. It’s hilarious, informative and irreverent.

    I have a feeling that the Washington Post will not report on this. Just a guess.
  • Good.

    At forum in ATL, tells thousands of black millennial Christians that his father's "entire family was wiped out by Hitler's white nationalism." Sanders pledges: "We will go to war against white nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives."

    53 percent of bernie bros are women
  • It’s weird that we are on a spaceship hurtling through a vast vacuum, and so many people in the spaceship’s control room don’t seem to care that there are flashing red lights on the console warning that our spaceship’s life support system is overheating.

    “If there is any lingering uncertainty that the Koch brothers are the primary sponsors of climate-change doubt in the United States, it ought to be put to rest by the publication of ‘Kochland’”
  • Someone save this tweet in a time capsule — future generations that survive the climate change cataclysm will need to see it to understand exactly who was responsible for willfully destroying their planet’s ecosystem 👇🏻
  • "Saks Fifth Ave. Shopper Finds Prison Laborer’s Secret Cry For ‘HELP’ Inside Shopping Bag" "Note Hidden In Walmart Purse Describes Inhumane Conditions" Now we have this in America -- and workers know is gonna help:
  • These workers know that ' campaign is taking on Jeff Bezos -- and that if we win, help is on the way.

    I have said it before and I will say it again: I’m incredibly humbled to have the support of the working class of this country. Together, we are going to create an economy that works for all of us, not just billionaires.
  • I appreciate being older, and now realizing one of the most seemingly ridiculous and cartoonishly gratuitous sci-fi B movies I saw as a teenager was actually an amazingly prescient political criticism of the private prison industry

    How much data must come out that destroys the “Bernie Bro” narrative until networks (and establishment dems) stop using it as a smear?
  • Fantastic
  • some great reporters who manage to do excellent work at corporate/billionaire-owned media outlets:
  • Read & retweet this passage about what MSNBC did to & how disgraceful it was. This wasn't a minor slip up - Brian Williams violated every standard of journalism & the episode confirmed Bernie's point about corporate media.
  • As climate change now threatens all life on the planet, a new study shows that massive fossil fuel campaign spending is able to defeat even modest ballot measures that are designed to combat the crisis. 👇
  • "It is the newspaper in the capital city in the most important country in the world." - Jeff Bezos on why he decided to buy the Washington Post
  •   Retweeted
    Obama reportedly warned Biden about 2020: "You don’t have to do this, Joe"
  • THIS —> “If Sanders had suggested that Rupert Murdoch’s ownership of Fox News impacts its coverage, few would argue with him. But Sanders referred to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ ownership of the Washington Post — a corporate centrist outlet.”
  • “I worked in & around mainstream TV news for yrs, including at corporate centrist outlets CNN & MSNBC...Bernie Sanders is one of the world’s most effective critics of Bezos (and) the Bezos-owned newspaper has exhibited an unrelenting bias against Sanders”
