Bernie Sanders admits he’s a millionaire

By Peter Hasson

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, admitted Tuesday that he is a part of the millionaire class.

Sanders often rails against millionaires on the campaign stump and opened his 2016 presidential campaign by bragging that he didn’t “have millionaire or billionaire friends.”

But Sanders himself is now a millionaire, he acknowledged to The New York Times.

“I wrote a best-selling book,” he told the paper. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”

Sanders also pledged to release 10 years of his tax returns within the coming week.

“April 15 is coming,” Sanders told the Times. “We wanted to release 10 years of tax returns. April 15, 2019, will be the 10th year, so I think you will see them.”

Sanders, who owns three houses, has often cited the “proliferation of millionaires and billionaires” in America as evidence that the economy is rigged against working people.

“Are we comfortable to see a huge increase in millionaires and billionaires but have more people living in poverty than ever? I know I’m not,” he wrote in a December 2016 tweet.

Sanders also previously criticized President Donald Trump for having millionaires and billionaires in his cabinet.

  1. Bernie, no one asked if you made the money from a book deal. We want to know, are you going to give away a couple houses and a whole bunch of money? That’s the malarkey you’ve been spewing for years, I guess you were just telling people what they wanted to hear. You are the definition of a hypocrite.

  2. Harry S Truman Explained Burnees sudden sucess and same for many political hacks that should be investigated.

    “You can’t get rich in politics unless your a crook”

    Instead of Pres Trumps tax returns congress critters should be investigating their own “millionaires”. Politics shouldn’t be for the money.

  3. As a Communist El Burnmeister doesn’t believe in Millionares and Billionaires as they are guilty of not doing their fair share and taking advantage of the little guy,have a confession to make Buttwad .

  4. The BS artist sure knows how to make money but he has criticized all the rest that actually did a days work to make theirs. He is such a Hypocrite..

  5. Say it ain’t so,
