Did CNN Ambush Bernie Sanders With Political Operatives Disguised As Everyday People?
The Clintonites, which is to say the Democratic Party establishment, still have a huge bone to pick with Bernie Sanders. They blame him, at least to some degree for Hillary's loss. After all, many of the issues that came to define the 2016 election, the email server, the Goldman Sachs speeches (which no one still seems to have a video of, huh), sprung from the fact that Hills didn't just walk into her nomination unblemished in the primaries. (Let's not forget Seth Rich.)
It is interesting to see the Democratic Party fracture along these lines. We'll bet this will prove a large liability come next nomination time. If the Democrats go after Bernie again, even harder, his peeps are going to throw down - to use the parlance of our times.
CNN has been accused of ambushing Bernie Sanders and tricking viewers by passing off Democratic political operatives as everyday people during a Monday evening town hall as part of his campaign for the 2020 election. Internet sleuths looked into the backgrounds of those asking Sanders various questions - most of which could be considered fair game to ask a presidential candidate, only to find that there was more than meets the eye as noted by Paste Magazine.
For example, Sanders was asked a tough question about allegations of sexual harassment on his 2016 campaign by "American University Student" Shadi Nasab. What CNN didn't mention is that she's also an intern for a large D.C. lobbying firm, Cassidy & Associates.
