Obligatory post noting the inevitable – Bernie Sanders cancels his campaign following his latest loss to Dementia Joe Biden in Wisconsin.
From a report in the New York Times:
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Wednesday, concluding a quest for the White House that began five years ago in relative obscurity but ultimately elevated him as a champion of the working class, a standard-bearer of American liberalism and the leader of a self-styled political revolution.
Mr. Sanders’s exit from the race establishes former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the presumptive nominee to challenge President Trump, and leaves the progressive movement without a prominent voice in the 2020 race.
In a live stream on Wednesday morning, Mr. Sanders, eloquent but without his characteristic spark, was by turns gracious and resolute as he announced his decision. “I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour,” Mr. Sanders said.
Though he made it clear that he viewed Mr. Biden as the party’s 2020 nominee, he said he would remain on the ballot in states that still have primaries and would continue to gather delegates — a move that would give him leverage to influence the Democratic platform and continue carrying his message.
Ok, so, he’s “suspending” his campaign, but will remain on the ballot and hopes to keep accumulating delegates. That way, he’ll be able to exert maximum pressure to ensure the Democrat Party keeps pushing his Marxist ideology on the public. I’m sure Dementia Joe’s handlers are thrilled about that part of the deal.
Here is how President Donald Trump hilariously responded to the news of the Commie’s demise:
Bernie Sanders is OUT! Thank you to Elizabeth Warren. If not for her, Bernie would have won almost every state on Super Tuesday! This ended just like the Democrats & the DNC wanted, same as the Crooked Hillary fiasco. The Bernie people should come to the Republican Party, TRADE!

No word on where Mr. Sanders’ 4th vacation home will be located, or what model new car he demanded in return for ending his latest quest for the presidency, but you can be sure he squeezed as much out of this opportunity as he possibly could.
That is all.
