As reported by the Blue Nation Review, Bernie was celebrating a great election night, but in the moment that Sanders was expressing his joy, video caught Sanders acknowledging Jane — on Bernie’s all-important right-hand side — but at the same time making a motion to wave Jane away when she stepped forward.
Bernie can be heard either telling Jane not to stand there or “don’t stand next to me,” with an arm movement that pushed Jane back gently, as if to instruct her that he didn’t want her standing there the whole time. It may have been an innocent instruction towards his wishes at the moment — but it’s not being received well online.
With Bernie’s wife, Jane, being held up as a woman who has long supported her husband, to see Bernie wave Jane away or tell his wife not to stand there is being interpreted as Bernie not wanting to share the spotlight with his “help mate” or right-hand woman. As expected, such a gesture is making people online react with fury.
This is the kind of thing that often really gets overblown in the political season.
I don't necessarily think that Sanders looks like a "dick" for asking his wife to step back, however I will admit that with perhaps the most famous woman in the world as his opponent that ANY signs of misogyny on his part will be used against him moving forward.
P.S. By the way the person who posted this video also included a link to another video of Sanders appearing on Real Time and waving his hand in Abby Huntsman's face and acting dismissively toward her as more proof of his negative attitude toward women.
