Everyone's tongue should be cocked and ready to recite what Bernie Sanders told Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union.
Bernie Sanders explains why Donald Trump is fraud
Bernie Sanders did not mince his words nor did he need to get uncivil as he described Trump literally as a fraud based on his actions.
"I have to say this, Jake. And I -- I don't mean to be disrespectful. This guy is a fraud," Bernie Sanders said. "This guy ran for president of the United States saying, 'I, Donald Trump, I'm going to take on Wall Street. These guys are getting away with murder.' And then, suddenly, he appoints all these billionaires. His major financial adviser comes from Goldman Sachs. And now he is going to dismantle legislation that protects consumers. This is a guy who ran for president saying, 'I'm going -- I'm the only Republican, I'm not going to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.' And then he appoints all of these guys who are precisely going to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. So, I hope that all of those folks who voted for Mr. Trump because he -- thought that he would stand up for working people, man, this guy is -- you know, he's a good showman. I will give you that. He's a good TV guy. But I think he is going to sell out the middle class and the working class of this country. And that business on Wall Street, he told us -- in fact, it's in the Republican platform -- he is going to bring back Glass-Steagall, we're going to be dividing up commercial banks from investment banks from insurance companies. Then he has all of the big Wall Street guys on his side, and now he's working for Wall Street."
We need to repeat this over and over again. But we also need to make it situational. How does the above-mentioned reality affect the life of the person you are addressing? e.g,) If a person has a kid with student loans, remind them that returning loans to private banks will make loans more expensive and will reduce the amount available for their kids. If they have a 401K, remind them that in 2008 many people who thought they had enough to retire, suddenly found out they were broke. etc. etc. etc.
