The Bernie Sanders campaign is comparing the presidential candidate to Franklin D. Roosevelt in a new ad released just days before the New York primary.
“Even when the deck is stacked, a New Yorker will find a way to break up big banks, create millions of jobs and rebuild America,” the narrator says over footage of the 32nd president, a New York native.
“Some say it can’t be done again,” the ad continues. “But another native son of New York is ready: Bernie. Rebuild the middle class, make Wall Street banks pay their fair share, give every child a chance.”
Well so much for Bernie Sanders having no ego.
Damn that is a ballsy move.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt of course was in office for three terms, implemented the New Deal, and oversaw America's participation in a second World War.
Sanders might as well compare himself to Jesus while he's at it.
