He's a socialist millionaire with three houses (one of them is a beach house) and he prefers flying first class. It's Bernie Sanders!
Bernie once famously said all income over $1 million should be taxed 100%. It sounds like he doesn't feel that way anymore after he was recently seen flying in first class (he also spent more on private jet travel than any other Democrat primary candidate).
Some pigs are more equal than others.
On Wednesday, a man apparently on the same flight as Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted out a photo of the socialist looking “nervous” while sitting in first class.
A nervous democratic socialist in first class,” a man named Hank Thomas captioned the photo, adding the hashtag, “#FeelTheBern.”
Providing context (and evidence) for his shot, Thomas followed-up the tweet with a photo of the Embraer ERJ-175’s first class seating arrangement.
“Here is a pic of American Eagle first class on an Embraer ERJ-175. Much less interesting when unoccupied,” he said, adding a link to layout of the plane’s seating, which can be accessed here.
