In the heydays of 2016, then-Republican nominee candidate Donald Trump and then-Democratic nominee candidate Bernie Sanders were definitely the trailblazers for their respective parties. Both were so far removed from the norm that millions of Americans responded to their polar opposite messages.
But then Hillary Clinton and her Democratic National Committee proxies sabotaged Sanders, which left many of his supporters furious. Sanders is running again for the 2020 Democratic ticket, which means he’s been traveling around trying to drum up support.
And Bernie Sanders just got punched in the face.
Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders clearly doesn’t like to give up. One of the biggest criticisms of both Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, from liberals no less, is their age. Their age is a big concern to Democrats.
Sanders is 77-years-old, about to turn 78 in a couple weeks, which would make him 79 if he won against President Trump in 2020 and 88-years-old by the time his second term would end. You can see how that’s concerning.
Joe Biden is a little younger. He’s 76-years-old – so if you do the math of Sanders’ age just subtract a year.
Hilariously, both of them are trying to seem spry in their old age.
President Trump has mocked Biden as “sleepy Joe Biden” many times before and Biden attempts to counteract that by constantly being on the road.
Sanders does the exact same thing frequently too.
Just recently, Sanders appeared on comedian Joe Rogan’s podcast and promised that if he were elected president then he would reveal if the government knows anything about a cover-up conspiracy of alien life.
This was in response to the “Storm Area 51” Facebook page that went viral – planning to gather a large group of people to invade Area 51 U.S. Air Force base to find out the secrets.
Now do you think he would actually do that or do you think he was trying to pander to people suspicious about the government?
On Tuesday, Sen. Sanders was ridiculed for a video of him taking swings at a boxing speed bag. If you’ve ever done this before then you know it’s hard to get a rhythm.
That didn’t stop Sanders from trying to demonstrate his “youthful vigor” and he failed miserably at it because that speed bag punched him right back in the face.

Sheesh, that’s embarrassing.
If his (and his team’s) whole agenda was to try and seem younger than his age then it’s almost hilariously ironic what actually occurred.
Many Twitter users didn’t hold back and made fun of him.
One person joked, “When we all know he’s most comfortable attacking upward and from the left.”
Others were just shocked that the video was even released.
Oh. My. GOD.
I feel like it’s chock-full of socialist metaphors, you know?

Others had jokes about his socialist views too.
