Default Bernie Sanders Made Nearly A Million On His Book, Financial Disclosures Show

It is difficult to say what is worse the hypocrisy of Beach House Bernie Sanders or the people that slavishly support him as the socialist savior. Bernie loves to rail against millionaires and billionaires while he lines his own pockets.
Quote:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders made nearly $1 million in advance for his book, “Our Revolution.” Sanders, a self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist, got $795,000 in 2016 from MacMillan Publishers for his book, according to 2016 annual financial filings. The senator also received $63,750 in royalty payments that year. In addition to his lavish book deals, the socialist senator brings in over $200,000 a year, which puts him in the top 4 percent of American in terms of income.
Let's see, $600K not reported on his disclosure filing materializes just in time for him to buy a third home and hit the road for Hillary Clinton and now a huge windfall from his upcoming book. Of course he is not in the top 1%, just the top 4%, so it's all good.

The socialist credo maintains that the central government is the only entity with the capability and moral authority to help the less fortunate. So, the question is how much of Bernie's money will he voluntarily gave to the Federal government? We know from Trump's stolen tax return data Bernie paid a lower percentage of his income in Federal income taxes than Trump, but why should he reach into his pocket when his followers will ignore the hypocrisy just like they do for Elizabeth Warren.

Good for Bernie. He authored the book and it is his intellectual property for which he deserves compensation for publication and distribution rights.

Then we have con men like Donald J. Trump...

Absolutely Bernie Sanders deserves compensation for his book. But, the million dollars he made in 1 year makes him one of the millionaires he constantly rails against.

Trump's money is dirty and Bernie's is clean. It all depends on the politics of who is getting rich. Trump celebrates his wealth, that he earned. Bernie attacks wealth in others while lining his own pockets.

Bernie was fool funded and lead by Russians who wanted to divide the Democratic party. Same with Jill Stein. Useful Idiots.

Bernie and his wife honeymooned in the Soviet Union providing more concrete evidence of his collaboration with them than what has been presented showing Trump colluding with the Russians. But, he is sort of Democrat so the media is "incurious".

As for Russian funding, you are welcome to provide evidence.

Yeah that's it, keep covering for Trump. He needs all the bootlicking cowards he can get who are willing to sell out their country for political or monetary gain.

At least conservatives are consistent in not knowing what it means to be a democratic socialist.

What kills me is conservatives who will attack Bernie for making money, failing to comprehend what you're talking about ...

... yet they naively think Trump is for them.
