Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has officially shot himself in the foot.
The 2020 candidate has a long standing history of slamming the one percent and calling on higher taxes to be levied against them. However, after releasing his own taxes it was revealed that Sanders himself sits with the one percent.
That wasn’t lost on viewers who questioned wether Sanders himself should be paying more. Sanders replied with, “I pay the taxes I owe.”
That doesn’t sound like the talk of someone who is fighting for a fair system, it sounds like someone who enjoys telling people what they want to hear as long as it doesn’t hurt them.
