One of the things that became most clearly visible upon the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency back in '16 is that the American system benefits the stupid.
From the BBC World News article:
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, 78, has been in hospital to receive two stents for an arterial blockage.
He was admitted after experiencing chest pain during a campaign event on Tuesday evening in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nate Silver has been hating on Bernie since 2015, but he's generally held off insulting millions of his supporters until now.
What a nice, unbiased "numbers guy".
Everyone is talking about Elizabeth Warren and when/if she will pass Joe Biden.
Bernie Sanders has been almost forgotten.
Senator Sanders has dared to say that the media, the Washington Post in particular, isn't completely fair and unbiased in their coverage of him.
Where Bernie could have dreamed up this wild konspiracy theory no one knows.
So the media was forced to defend itself from this baseless smear.
