MSNBC host suggests to Bernie Sanders campaign manager that they are being dishonest to supporters by saying that he still has a shot at the nomination.

Jeff Weaver
Courtesy of TPM: 

When (Thomas) Roberts pressed top aide Jeff Weaver about the campaign’s April fundraising reportedly being down by about 50 percent from strong showings in February and March, Weaver argued that Sanders being on the June 7 ballot in California would help down-ballot Democrats. 

The MSNBC anchor interrupted: “But, Jeff—when we look at the math, is it intellectually dishonest to tell these supporters that you can actually win when there are only a little over 1,000 delegates left? Bernie Sanders needs to win almost 100 percent of them. Hillary Clinton only needs to win 10 percent of them before the convention.” 

“I mean, there’s one thing to say you want to take it all the way to the end, but telling supporters that you can win is factually incorrect,” Roberts continued.

In response Weaver said that they could still win the nomination with, and get this, super delegates.

To be clear the Sander's campaign is now justifying the continued acceptance of campaign donations on the premise that the democratic system, which they have labeled "corrupt" due to the utilization of super delegates, will now salvage THEIR chances for winning by giving them the opportunity to utilize those self same super delegates.

In other words the argument Jeff Weaver is making is that the very folks Bernie Sanders has referred to as "the Establishment" or as "corrupt" are suddenly going to be convinced that HE is the future of the same party that he has been attacking for over a year now.

    I was a Bernie supporter and recognized he was not going to get the nomination 3 months ago. For him to stay in the race after that point wasted resources and undermined the focus of the actual Democratic nominee. He has an underlying motivation that had had not put the party and winning the general election first. Maybe it's his advisors and maybe it's ego, who knows?

      He's doing exactly what the DNC said liberal 3rd party candidates should do after the 2000 election: run in the Democratic primary as Dems so as not to hurt the Dems in the general. He's helping the party by running in the Dem primary instead of being a general candidate and people like you slander him for doing what the DNC said it wanted.

    Brutally Honest Bernie Sanders Tells His Supporters That He Is Not Their Savior

    ...In the middle of his rally in North Dakota, Sanders asked what was the truth? A supporter shouted out, “You.” Sanders said, “No. That is exactly not the truth. The truth is you, not me. If there is any person here, any person here that thinks I’m coming to you as some kind of savior, that I’m going to do it all — all myself, you’re wrong. No president, not Bernie Sanders or anybody else, can do it alone. We don’t need a savior. We need a political movement.”

    Two camps developed among those who support Sen. Sanders. The first camp seems to have placed everything on the outcome of the Democratic primary. These are the individuals who think that a Hillary Clinton victory means the end of the universe. They are also the hardcore individuals who have missed the Sanders message, by placing all of their hopes and dreams for the country on the election of one man.

    Since before his presidential campaign kicked off, Sen. Sanders has been talking about the need for a revolution in our political process that would give power back to the people. The political revolution is not something that ends after the Democratic primary campaign is over. Sen. Sanders has been consistent in talking about the need for a political movement. In Sanders’ view that political movement is where people should be placing their hearts and efforts.

      They won't believe it and if he wins the whole thing, his cult will disown him in 2018 and 2020 for not delivering everything they want NOW. Same shit happened to President Obama in 2008 and we all know what that caused... the fucking Teabaggers rise and the loss of congress.

      He's already lost. It is ridiculous to think otherwise. HRC needs only 10% of the remaining vote. Bernie would need 100% of it. With the proportional splits, that's impossible for him to get. IT'S OVER! HRC will definitely win D.C., so the campaign is going to win on a HRC victory, anyway.

    Try checking out what happens to working people in Sweden under a Sanders-like system. The media loves to spread the lie that the Swedes are the happiest on earth. Then why is their suicide rate almost twice ours?

      Don't tell untruths that are so easy to fact check, 9:09.

      The WHO 2012 numbers have Sweden's suicide rate at 11.1 per 100,000, 9% lower than the US suicide rate at 12.1/100,000.

      The World Happiness Report 2016 ranks Sweden as 10th, happier than the US at 13th.

    Welfare does not create happy lives.

    Sen Bernie Sanders (I Vermont) will not be alive to see how his Socialist politics has ruined America.

    Promise the next generation a better life when they grow up.

    Free college, free health care and $15 minimum wage will end up with millions of people losing their jobs and relying on Bernie's Socialist Government for welfare.

    If he believes in his Socialism views then why didn't he push his agenda 25 years ago?

    Bernie won't be alive to see what he created.

    Rest In Hell Bernie Sanders

    Fuck Bernie Sanders! It is more and more apparent, as each day goes by, that he is trying to divide the Democratic Party!

    His wife continues leading him by the nose! He is too old and it is way past time that he drop out! Plus, doubt he'd be able to win against The Donald (IF he is the nominee?).

    I'll be voting for Hillary Clinton who can walk into the White House and due to her level of experience will immediately be able to take over from President Obama!

      Baby Jane is loving the big money she is collecting for being at her husband's side, my goodness what a greedy woman to have to get paid to do so.

      A basic search at proves Jane Sanders hasn't been paid a penny.

      11:30 - they are hiding their financials. Don't pretend otherwise! They filed for an extension this quarter until after CA, AND they won't release any tax records for Jane and Bernie re: 2015.

      Got two words for ya!
      Clinton Foundation.
      Why do you think the "investigation" is taking so long.
      Little Brian Pagliano(the guy who set up server in Hillary's house) drew a salary from the State Dept. AND Clinton Foundation at the same time.
      And now his emails are "missing".
      And need I remind you the feds gave him immunity?
      Shit fixin' to get real!

    Bernie is enthused by the thousands of people standing in line to see him. These same people will be looking for jobs when employers tell them they are downsizing because Americans are not spending money because they can't find jobs.

    1. Anonymous10:25 AM

      They like to caravan around and see him, like following a rock band. In April, CNN interviewed some of his supporters in NY who traveled around to all of his rallies; many were "repeats."

    2. Anonymous11:13 AM

      What a waste of time following him from rally to rally. Pure bullshit and nothing more. He'll never be elected POTUS!

    When you go to the grocery store, which checkout line do you go to? The one that has a cashier and a bagger or the checkout stand that has a self checkout kiosk, bag it yourself and load it in your grocery cart yourself?


    Multiple grocery stores in my area has self check out kiosks and I hate them. There's always someone in front of me who holds up the line.

    There was a time when you went to a fast food restaurant the cashier would fill up your cup with soda and ice.

    Now you stand in line, give the cashier your money and they give you a cup. Next you stand in line at a soda dispenser kiosk and fill up your own cup. By the way the price of soda went up to compensate for the FREE refills.

    No way will Bernie's $15.00 minimum wage affect your jobs.

    By the way you've been using self-serve kiosks and didn't realize it.

    What happens when you get gas?

    Pull up to a self-service gas pump kiosk.

    Next go to the self-service gas cashier kiosk line that is the self-service cashier kiosk for 6 self-service gas kiosk pumps.

    Pay the self-service gas cashier kiosk.

    Go pump your own gas.

    Go back and stand in line at the self-service gas cashier kiosk and get your own receipt.

    How many jobs are lost because gas stations don't want to pay human wages?

  27. Anonymous10:58 AM

    I'm not going to lose my job to a self-service kiosk. I have a family to feed.

    Family what do you want to eat?


    Okay I'll order it on my smartphone self-order kiosk.

    Another job that doesn't have to pay $15.00 an hour.

    AS much as Hillary supporters would like it to be the Democratic Party primary is not over yet. The more they go off about it the more likely she will lose this primary. Her buddies in the media are not helping her.
