30+ years in the Senate, but he paints himself as "anti-establishment", which his supporters gleefully parrot without thinking.
In his 80s, but his supporters jeer at Biden and Pelosi for being octogenarian politicians.
Few notable achievements to his name over his lengthy career, yet he is on TV several times a week to complain about how Democrats are doing this or that the wrong way.
Independent party affiliation, but caucuses with Democrats and ran for president as a Democrat, twice. Americans rejected him twice, yet his supporters insist he was the rightful winner both times (sound familiar?).
But the media loves him for giving them endless fodder for pushing the "Democrats are weak and ineffective" narrative.
He is not an ally. True allies do not backstab as he has, many times.
