Bernie Sanders is sooooooo awesome. And he's considering running for president.




The campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in his 2016 presidential run hinted that the Independent senator from Vermont may run for the White House again in 2020.

Sanders is ďconsidering another run for the presidency,Ē but for now is completely focused on his congressional re-election campaign in November, Jeff Weavers said in an interview with C-Span host John McArdle on Monday.

Sanders made waves as the progressive who consistently challenged former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in his 2016 primary bid. His platform largely focused on issues like universal healthcare and income equality.

When Sanders announced his candidacy for president in 2015, he was 50 points behind Clinton in almost every major national poll. But with his popularity among young Democratic voters, he closed that gap and ended up winning 22 states and about 45 percent of the pledged delegates before conceding and endorsing Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

DU Hug

I've been posting here for over 12 years. This is my favorite site on all of the interwebs, Twitter included. And I am up to 38k Twitter followers now.

Mostly, I have DU and Reddit to thank for all of the articles and funny memes I post on Twitter. I love you guys. I mean I really, really love you guys. I love the lefty/progressive perspective here. I love the spirited debates. I love the consistency and the active moderators/admins who keep out the riff raff. I love the jury system which allows me to have some voice in what is allowed here.

I think of myself as someone who takes it upon himself to find the most important lefty stories of the day and amplify them. That's the reason I am on Twitter, to push progressive ideas and to fight back against fake news. If you post an important story or a dank meme, you can count on me to amplify it as best I can and give the story more legs. My Twitter posts average around 5 million views/impressions per month for the past year. So, I feel like I'm doing something right, and people want to hear what I have to say. I have found my voice. On Twitter. But mostly I have DU to thank for it. You guys rock. And I love you guys.

GOP Senator: 'I Don't Consider The President A Role Model For My Kids'


Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) slammed President Donald Trumpís behavior on Sunday, saying that he does not consider the President a role model for his kids, and that he would never speak or treat his staff the way Trump does.

ďI donít want my kids to speak the way he speaks or make some of the choices, and it has been the challenge for quite a bit of time to say, how do you balance this out between policy and personal behavior in the way he has his own unique style,Ē he said to MSNBCís Kasie Hunt. ďI donít speak that way. I donít tweet that way. I donít interact with people that way. I donít treat my staff the way he treats his staff.
