Zerlina Maxwell was recently called out as having Bernie Derangement Syndrome. [View all]

The proof, a highly edited and deceptive video put out by a Sanders front group that goes by MSDNC. The contributors are: @spittingback, a huge Nina Turner fan who trashes Democrat after Democrat including their staff. It is a one hundred percent Sanders account. Their main target is anything Biden or Clinton. Pretty sure they think Clinton is still running.

@_memorable2, a twitter handle that says "I make Bernie vids and graphics." This person sticks to two things. Loving Sanders and trashing Biden.

Last is @greg06897, who says if you will never vote for Bernie then you are either "don't care" or are and "asshole." This person enjoys comparing Biden to Trump and absolutely trashing the Democratic Party.

These are the people calling a strong and accomplished woman of color "deranged."

Here is who they put together a highly edited video together to attack as having "Bernie Derangement Syndrome."

Zerlina Maxwellís Secret to Taking On Sean Hannity

Zerlina Maxwell has built a career around expressing her political opinions with wit and intelligence. Her Twitter feed gained the attention of President Barack Obama first, then Hillary Clinton, who hired her to lead the progressive-media outreach during her presidential campaign. Maxwell is now the director of progressive programming for SiriusXM, where she also has her own weekly radio show, ďSignal Boost.Ē She regularly appears as a political analyst on prime-time TV, and speaks about sexual assault and other topics at colleges in engagements across the country. Here, she shares how she gets it all done.

On her morning routine:
I work out as soon as I wake up. I do Beachbody or Insanity videos on my iPad. I try really hard not to look at my phone until Iím done working out. My commute is at least 45 minutes, so I can listen to a good chunk of an audiobook in that time. I have an Audible subscription. I am reading a lot of books on communication and management because Iím in my first real management position right now. And Iíll catch up on the news. Iím flagging things, sending them to my producers so I can make sure weíre covering all the breaking stories. Iím always reachable en route ó all the producers are on a group chat ó because who knows how long the rideís going to take. The subways are a hot mess.

On her day-to-day:
Iím the director of progressive programming at SiriusXM. I started here in February 2017, after the Hillary campaign. The majority of my day is managing my in-box, managing my team, talking to my producers. I hate meetings. I hate them. I hate meetings, because I like to do stuff. You have all this work to do and youíre sitting here in this meeting that is pointless. I donít like conference calls either. I come from campaigns, where youíd have like 55 field offices calling in. Luckily, we donít have a lot of meetings here.

The Cut

I find it to be nothing short of disgusting to attack a person who is fighting for us. I see it as similar, and might be perpetrated by a similar person or group, to the old Stockholm Syndrome garbage that was promoted by a small group about five years ago and was directed at minorities.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
