Now that Bernie Sanders is finished railing against capitalism and trying to turn America into a socialist country, he has bought himself a swanky new house. How nice for him.
Heat Street has the story:
Bernie Sanders Buys $600K Lakefront Summer House in Vermont
Bernie Sanders, the socialist who challenged Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, is dropping fat cash on a hot new lakefront pad.
The income inequality expert reportedly bought a $600,000 “camp” on the Champlain Islands in Vermont last week, which he plans to use as a seasonal getaway locale.
Bernie’s new crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of beautiful shorefront access on the banks of Lake Champlain. Sanders and his wife plan to keep their home in nearby Burlington, as well as their fashionable rowhouse on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Bernie should fit right in as a member of the Champlain Islands community. There is a general store down the road from his new digs, for example, that serves a turkey sandwich called “Feel the Bun” in his honor. It features a “HUGE” roll, because Bernie says the word “huge” a lot. Also, provolone cheese.
“It’s not fair that the Billionaire Class controls 99 percent of the bread,” reads the sandwich’s description on the menu. “Here’s a sandwich for the rest of us … to keep us nourished until everything cool is free!”
This is Bernie’s third home.
As you may recall, Democrats attacked John McCain in 2008 for owning more than one home.
Will they attack Bernie now?
Don’t bet on it.
