BLUE ON BLUE: Bernie Sanders Attacked By The Left For Speaking Negatively Of Obama

Sanders Under Fire for Comments ‘Dismissing’ Obama’s Accomplishments

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) appeared to criticize former President Barack Obama’s leadership of the Democratic Party on Wednesday, drawing backlash from those who consider his message to black voters tone-deaf.

Sanders made the comments on Obama while speaking at an event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. in Jackson, Mississippi, a venue that many said was inappropriate for him to chide the country’s first black president for losses that Democrats sustained during his presidency, BuzzFeed reported.
