A stunning story surfaced on Sunday with regard to socialist stalwart Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT). And of course his Republican rival President Donald Trump.
USA Today revealed that Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders of Vermont surged to “solidly second in most national polls behind Biden, and he either leads or is tied in recent polls in the first two states that vote, Iowa and New Hampshire.”
Later in response the president posted on Twitter: “Wow! Crazy Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls, looking very good against his opponents in the Do Nothing Party. So what does this all mean? Stay tuned!”
Journalist James O’Keefe quoted his tweet and wrote, “Stay tuned everyone. Something very big is going to happen. The first bombshell tape is going to drop this week.”
As O’Keefe then linked to a website “Expose2020.com” which reads:
BREAKING: Project Veritas Action Fund has just announced #Expose2020; an investigative series that will expose corruption within the 2020 Presidential Elections and hold Presidential candidates and their campaigns accountable. Which Presidential candidate do you want to see EXPOSED? Let us know right now.
Stay tuned everyone. Something very big is going to happen.

Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina warned Democrats that if Sanders is the Democratic nominee that Democrats will struggle across the board in national elections. “If I were a campaign manager for Donald Trump and I look at the field, I would very much want to run against Bernie Sanders,” he affirmed.
And further he stated, “I think the contrast is the best. He can say, ‘I’m a business guy, the economy’s good and this guy’s a socialist.’ I think that contrast for Trump is likely one that he’d be excited about in a way that he wouldn’t be as excited about Biden or potentially Mayor Pete or some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates.”
“I think the two people who will absolutely be in it until the end are Biden and Bernie,” said Joe Trippi, a longtime Democratic campaign operative. “Does it turn into a Biden-Bernie race the way Clinton-Bernie did? Or is it three or four other people, billionaires, fighting it out until the end? I don’t know,” Trippi ended.
While Messina argued, “From a general election perspective, socialism is not going to be what Democrats are going to want to defend,” Adding that, “If you’re the Democratic nominee for the Montana Senate race, you don’t want to spend the election talking about socialism.”
What could be on the tape? We must wait and see.
