This was unexpected!
Former co-chair to Bernie Sanders, Nina Turner, has come out and stated her thoughts on the upcoming presidential election.
Her analogy for the choice between Trump and Joe Biden was: “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of sh*t in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing. It’s still sh*t.'”
Along with Turner, Harvard professor Cornel West also criticized Biden saying, “We have to be true to ourselves and acknowledge that Biden is a mediocre, milquetoast, neoliberal centrist that we’ve been fighting against in the Democratic establishment.”
There have been some Sanders supporters who have called for Biden to choose Turner as vice president. A petition was announced stating:
The progressive wing of the Democratic Party is sick and tired of being ignored. We will only unite behind Joe Biden if we are absolutely certain he is willing to work with us. The only way he can earn that trust is to pick a true progressive for VP. Specifically, Bernie Sanders or Nina Turner. We will gladly unite behind Joe Biden if he makes this compromise. If not, we won’t vote in November or we will just vote 3rd party.
Biden is taking hit after hit. When will he realize that he’s not fit for presidency and just drop out.
