Trump keeps tweeting how “unfair the Democrats are to Bernie.” Add that to stories of stop and frisk and sexual harassment and it almost seems that the Republicans are fearful of a Bloomberg candidacy and believe their only hope is Bernie. And they are right.

Bernie Sanders is the George McGovern of the 21st century, and despite his passioned throngs of Bros and Bras, he can’t get it done in the key states that will not only determine the election, but the future of our democracy.

This story was never about Hillary, it’s about getting Bernie Sanders the Democratic nomination and Trump four more years.
