"Who knows about cocaine? Anyone ever seen cocaine?... Who here smokes?" — Bernie Sanders talks to little kids.

30 years ago, when he was mayor of Burlington, Vermont and did a public-access TV show.

Hilarious footage in here. Watch the whole thing. I like when he says to a kid "I think you're dumb" and when a kid says to him, "Okay, well, I better get going."

Ok, I'll admit that that was fairly funny... for the Daily Show.

Sander's really is like a cartoon character. In fact, Bernie Sanders always reminds me of a certain character in Beavis & Butthead, Principal McVicker.

Remember Bootiekeg fans this is what you get when you hire a Mayor...

Only Trevor Noah could take such richly humorous source material and nearly make it unfunny.

So Bernie Sanders is now an Unperson? Hillary in the wings? What?

"Hey, kids, do you know who your best friend is? It's a man I like to call 'Big Brother' . . . ."

rehajm said...

Funny how they think they have to work to make Bernie look bad...

"Okay, well, I better get going."

Not under socialism you don't.

Stay right where you are, and take it good and hard.

Yes

Yes

Either Bernie garners the nomination then Jerry Fallwell's out of the way for Hillary! or Hillary Veeps and Joe hangs himself after he's sworn in but before lunch...

I hope someone is paying someone to watch all the episodes; who knows what other examples of the Sanders nonsense there may be?

Also, that was the first time I'd ever heard Trevor Noah. I cannot imagine listening for more than eight minutes.

He's a real charmer, I think we've seen peak Bernie.

And that, my friends, is how we at the DNC deal with people like Bernie!

wild chicken said...

Oh that was guffaw-out-loud funny.

My brother acts the same way around kids, talking to them like little adults. It's a funny shtick and I'd laugh every time, but that's not funny anymore

Imagine this nice soft treatment of any R - ever.

JaimeRoberto said...

Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison? Have you ever seen a grown man naked?

Nice of the Daily Show to catch up--the full links were on Twitter last week, Politico, Fox News, and Reason had stories last Friday...but Trevor Noah's crew did a segment two days ago so now it's news (Slate and HuffPo both covered the story by covering Noah's segment, naturally).

An NYTimes article from 2016 links to a MotherJones post from 2015 that has clips from his shows.

So, you know, not exactly deeply-buried secrets, but I guess the time wasn't right to point and laugh at Bernie until now. Democracy dies in darkness, or whatever.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

Funny stuff.

That footage where Bernie says Irish are drunks, Italians are mobsters, Blacks smell, Jews are greedy - yeah that part would end the career of any R.

Bernie's time was 2016- it is now past. Same thing will happen to Biden.

daskol said...

Good old Crazy Bernie.

Bay Area Guy said...

Crazy Bernie is 30 points behind Biden.

Need your full support to prop up Crazy Bernie, er, Senator Bernard Sanders from the Great Maple State of Vermont.

Art in LA said...

It's funny that The Daily Show uses TDS for its logo!

Bay Area Guy said...

Darnit, next thing you know the late night talk shows will be yapping about some bogus claims that Crazy Bernie, er, Senator Bernard Sanders from the Great Maple State of Vermont, once dallied in rape-fantasy underground papers.

Wait.

I dealt with Bernie's rape fantasies 4 years ago — here.

The Godfather said...

So, if I understand it correctly, in 2015-16, Hillary! and her campaign had access to this stuff, while Bernie was eating their lunch, and they NEVER USED IT. In comparison, that makes her not going to Wisconsin look like a brilliant strategic move.

He's right about the Irish.

I was going to make a comment about fast-forwarding over the useless mulatto, but thought better of it.

Bernie is even funnier than Trump!

Fernandistein said...

Was he trying to imply that there's something wrong with being greedy and having strange sexual habits?

Asking for a distant acquaintance.

CRAZIE BERNIE!

it's akward that the foreign minister's father had such an interesting past,

Michael Fitzgerald said...

What a fucking shithead that asshole is. Fucking fool Can't even handle q&a from grade school children, but millions of Americans think this useless stupid traitor should be president... WTF....

Scott X said...

Thanks for the clip, that was funny.

Fen said...

Sorry, blogger keeps eating my post...

Althouse: I dealt with Bernie's rape fantasies 4 years ago — here.

I had forgotten his comment that every woman secretly longs to be taken against her will and forced to do things she is too ashamed to perform voluntarily.

I've never known any women like that. Pinkie swears. Right guys? (just nod along)

The GOP should dig that up for a political advert - they can include Biden in there with Bernie so women voters will remember them as "those two pervs looking for a threesome".

gilbar said...

so, WHY is it that dem's are always stopping on street corners, or corridors of congress; and coming onto kids? At least Bernie didn't sniff their hair

walter said...

Berno feels the plethora of hair shampoo/scents is an exemplar of capitalistic excess.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

Yeah but - Trump said "grab em by the pussy" on some obscure tape once, and it's like he raped every female every known to exist.
