Bernie Asked If Democrats Are ‘Staging Coup Against’ Him. He Refuses To Answer.

Socialist Bernie Sanders, the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination for president, refused to answer during an interview on CNN whether the Democratic Party was trying to take the nomination away from him.
“President Trump questioned last night the timing of Buttigieg’s withdrawal, tweeting in part, ‘this is the real beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play, no nomination again,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper said to Sanders. “He also also tweeted again this afternoon, ‘they are staging a coup against’ you.”
“Is he right?” Cooper asked.
Sanders refused to answer the question.
“You know what, I really wish that the president of the United States, might kind of spend his time doing his job,” Sanders responded. “Maybe, just maybe, he might wanna worry about the coronavirus, he might wanna worry about the stock market, he might worry about the 500,000 people in this country who are homeless, or the massive level of income and wealth inequality that exists.”
“So, President Trump, stay out of the Democratic primary,” Sanders continued. “Why don’t you do your job for a change as president? Stop lying, stop running a corruption administration, pay attention to the American people not just your own political aims.”

Trump has repeatedly accused the Democrats of plotting to take the nomination away from Sanders again, writing in January, “They are taking the nomination away from Bernie for a second time. Rigged!”

“Mini Mike is a 5’4” mass of dead energy who does not want to be on the debate stage with these professional politicians,” Trump tweeted last month. “No boxes please. He hates Crazy Bernie and will, with enough money, possibly stop him. Bernie’s people will go nuts!”

“The Dems are working hard to take the prized nomination away from Bernie. Back room politics, which Bernie is not very good at,” Trump tweeted last week. “His people will not let it happen again!”

The Daily Wire highlighted Sanders’ extreme policy stances in a profile piece last year:

On The Issues: Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist” who, while disavowing whole-hearted socialist theory with respect to government ownership of the means of production, nonetheless has consistently advocated for economic class warfare that pits the lower and middle classes against the wealthy. He has routinely supported anti-capitalistic and anti-growth economic policies, heavy-handed government regulation over the private economy, robust labor unions, and the Nordic model of a sprawling welfare state. On foreign policy, he has frequently mollycoddled communist dictatorships and has often been hostile toward America’s closest geopolitical allies. Overall, he is a far-left progressive who has long defined the leftward flank of what it means to be a progressive in America.
Constitution: Sanders supports a “living Constitution” interpretive methodology that effectively empowers unelected federal judges to determine large swaths of the laws that govern Americans’ lives. He is hostile to the First Amendment’s protection of free speech and has supported a constitutional amendment to overturn the political speech-affirming 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision of Citizens United v. F.E.CHe has generally supported a more robust role for Congress and a more diminished role for the presidency in the context of foreign policy and the conduct of overseas military operations. He takes an expansive view of the Fourth Amendment and has even praised disgruntled NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
