(Liberty Bell) – During Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s news program “OutFront” Sen. Bernie Sanders’ co-chair made an appearance where she commented on how much things have changed concerning the popular vote happening in the Democratic Party primary.
This week was the Iowa caucus, one of the most important primaries in the presidential election, and the whole thing was a mitigated disaster thanks to some sort of app glitch that wreaked havoc with the results of the vote.
Here’s more on all of this from Breitbart News:
On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Nina Turner, the National Co-Chair of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) campaign stated that “so many people in 2016, and even Mr. Buttigieg said the same thing, that the person that wins the popular vote wins.” And that Sanders won the popular vote in both the first round of voting and the realignment in the 2020 Iowa caucuses.
Turner said, “Now, in terms of the popular vote, Erin — and I remember so many people in 2016, and even Mr. Buttigieg said the same thing, that the person that wins the popular vote wins. But my have things changed in 2020. Sen. Sanders did win the popular vote on the first round. He also won it in the realignment as well.”
Tucker Carlson also weighed in on the whole debacle at Iowa with the following piece he published on Fox News:
Did you ever suspect in your heart that liberals were basically disorganized and incompetent? The kind of people who hate their dads and leave dirty dishes in the sink and have crumbs in their beds?
It turns out you had no idea. It’s so much worse than that. They’re a disaster.
The people who want to control your health care couldn’t organize naptime for a six-year-old. They can’t find the airport. They’re baffled by the instructions of a washing machine.
What happens when you put them in charge of an entire caucus in Iowa? Well, the first thing they do is pay former Hillary staffer $63,000.00 to develop a vote-counting app that doesn’t work. Then they use the chaos that results to attack and humiliate their own voters.
And then they elevate a 38-year-old finance puppet and pretend he is the frontrunner. If there’s a short-term winner emerging from Iowa, it’s probably that candidate, Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, the hand-selected choice of Democratic donors to fight the Bernie Sanders insurgency.
Buttigieg already sees himself as anointed by God to take power, something he has been planning assiduously since eighth grade. He didn’t wait until the results were tabulated to declare a victory. He went ahead and did it anyway Monday night.
Pete Buttigieg, South Bend, Ind. mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate: Looking out at you, and remembering how it felt to be an Indiana teenager, wondering if you would ever belong in this world. Wondering if something deep inside him meant that he would forever be an outsider, that he might never wear the uniform, never be accepted, never even know love.
And now that same person is standing in front of you, a mayor, a veteran, happily married and one step closer to becoming the next president of the United States.
Another child of privilege telling you how oppressed he is. Son of a college professor. Okay.
Pretty much nobody, meanwhile, thought Elizabeth Warren was going to win Monday night, and the results this afternoon confirmed that she didn’t, proving once again that even Democratic voters have standards, and there is, in fact, a god.
But Warren claimed victory Monday night nonetheless. In her speech, she made certain to brag about the illegal aliens her campaign had hired.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren. D-Mass.: Tonight is for every undocumented, unafraid organizer and volunteer who proudly knocked on doors to let the world know that the path to progress runs through courage, not fear.
Oh, cliche confirmed! It turns out it is true that illegal aliens do the jobs that Americans won’t do. Godspeed to them. As long as they’re not planning for long term employment with Elizabeth Warren — that gig won’t last.
The whole debacle Monday night was entirely unnerving for the press watching from their studios. It’s the home team they’re covering, remember, so when things go wrong in a Democratic primary, it hurts them personally.
Wolf Blitzer, CNN anchor: No results at all from the Iowa caucus. It is a huge, huge embarrassment for the Iowa Democratic Party.
Joe Scarborough, MSNBC host: Was there election interference? Did somebody try to hack into the app?
Jonathan Lemire, MSNBC political analyst: This is a disaster on every level. This is the first step. They botched it.
Van Jones, CNN political analyst: This is starting to feel like, you know, possibly a real debacle where if there’s some technical problems that they’re not disclosing…
David Chalian, CNN political director: We have to start asking the questions. Has it been infected in any way? Has there been any kind of interference? We have no — we don’t know that.
Al Sharpton, MSNBC host: Whatever the results come out, it will almost not matter because it will be under a cloud now. And what about the people of Iowa?
Chris Matthews, MSNBC host: The guy in the White House is chuckling all night here, showing the Democrats can’t even get a three-car funeral organized or whatever you want to call it.
This election season is turning out to have all sorts of twists and turns in it, so it’ll be interesting to see who the actual candidate to face off against President Trump in November will actually be.
No matter who it is, you can guarantee this is going to be a super exciting and entertaining political season, one for the record books.
