274. You haven't seen him mention those issues? Interesting cognitive bias.

I could probably find more but that's sufficient to prove that he has mentioned both Russia's interference and the Muslim ban and has done so on more than one occasion.

Of course I fully expect you to move the goal posts and claim he didn't do it soon enough, often enough, stridently enough etc.


It's really too bad you don't think it's important for our leaders to get in front of cameras. In my opinion when you combine calling out Trump at every opportunity in newspapers, on television, on social media as well as holding town halls and rallies to reach voters and disadvantaged groups that those efforts can indeed be defined as "fighting" and being part of the resistance.

But as always, your mileage will probably vary. I'm sure some people believe critiquing Senator Sanders' continued efforts to stop Trump on DU is every bit as valuable to the resistance.

Anyway I'm done digging up proof that your allegations about Bernie are wrong, this is an old game and I tired of it long ago. I have much better things to do with my time than waste it stating the obvious. Bernie is a part of the resistance and he's also a leader, you don't have to like it but he's out there every day fighting the good fight - pretending otherwise is ridiculous.
