Bernie's reply to CNN's Nobles asking about Beto running: Shrugs. "Free country, anybody can run."

Gracious of him...

Tweet from CNN's Ryan Nobles, minutes ago:






NEW: I asked ⁦@BernieSanders⁩ about ⁦@BetoORourke⁩ getting into the race for President.
His response:
“Free country, anybody can run.”



Video with the tweet.

1. People often pretend to be unfazed...

 

... to disguise anger or fear.

15. I love her optimism! She's not grumpy.

 

She's not sour. She's not feeling vulnerable or threatened.

response, as DesertRat pointed out in reply 9.

7. lol

 

as if many on this board didn't COMPLETELY DISAGREE.

Anybody CAN run. Anybody can even run as a DEMOCRAT. Sheeeeit, if Bloomberg can call himself a Democrat (or rump, for that matter, as he did for most of his life), anybody can.

9. I think that Sen. Harris had a much better response

 

Kamala Harris asked about Beto O'Rourke's entry into the 2020 race: "The more the merrier... We have an embarrassment of riches of Democrats who are running."

whoever wins the nomination.

Bernie's response...wasn't.

18. Beto thinks he can be President...

 

Then he should run for President.

Not my first choice but might be my second. Might like him for VP.

Now voters decide.

21. How long is "soon?"

 

That’s the question.

He clearly wasn’t comfortable right there. Not sure if it was because of the question or if the rigors of being on the campaign trail are already getting to him.

22. Wasn't Beto a member of the New Democrat caucus?

 

If so, yah, anybody can run...even in a very progressive climate.

23. Yes, Beto was a member.

 

I don’t get how that flows to your last sentence.

I believe it is currently one of the largest coalitions in the house, with over one hundred members.

31. Those aren't votes against the Democratic Party

 

They're votes against other independent democrats. In other words it's how often he disagrees with Sen. Angus King not how often he votes with or against other Democrats. It tells you that if you click on his name at the propublica link.

https://projects.propublica.org/represent/members/S000033-bernard-sanders/compare-votes/B001288-cory-booker/115 He has a 9% difference from Booker, 7% from Warren, 6% difference from Gillibrand, 7% difference from Harris, a 23% difference from Klobuchar.
