March 15, 2020: Bernie Sanders mentions the current “Ebola crisis” two different times. He also implies that multi-millionaires are immune from it.

Yesterday, Bernie Sanders mentioned the “Ebola crisis” twice.

Here are his exact words:

“The Ebola crisis, in my view, exposes the dysfunctionality of our health care system, and how poorly prepared we are despite how much money that we spend. And the Ebola crisis is also, I think, exposing the cruelty and the unjustness of our economy today.”

“We have more income and wealth inequality in America today than at any time in 100 years. And what that means that in the midst of this crisis, you know, if you’re a multimillionaire, no one’s happy about this crisis…”

Here’s video of Sanders saying those words. It’s the second video here, not the first one.

Here is a transcript of what Sanders says next:

“… if you’re a multimillionaire, no one is happy about this crisis, you’re going to get through it…”

Meanwhile, in the real world, there is nothing in the medical literature that says that multi-millionaires will “get through” either Ebola or the Coronavirus.

And assuming that Sanders meant to say Coronavirus and not Ebola, it is age, not wealth, that is, by far, the bigger factor that determines whether you will live or die.

    As far as I can tell from the spoken words of these morons, most of the “leaders” are incompetent mentally challenged losers who couldn’t find work anywhere else.
