Bernie Sanders is 76 years old, but his senses are still strong — especially his ability to smell money, even if it’s almost 3,000 miles from the state he’s paid to represent:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is meeting with workers and activists in Southern California on Saturday, just days prior to the state’s June 5 primary election.
The former Democratic presidential hopeful kicked off his tour at a rally and roundtable with Disneyland Resort employees in Anaheim, where unions are pushing legislation to increase wages for hospitality workers. The event got underway at 10 a.m. inside the River Church Arena.
Sanders lent his support to “union leaders pushing a ballot measure that would require businesses that have received subsidies from the city to raise wages to $15 an hour by 2019,” a news release from his office read.
For some reason Sanders didn’t tell workers he thinks are underpaid how to stretch a buck farther, which a socialist “public servant” with three homes should certainly know something about.
And no, Sanders didn’t get too worked up at the thought of helping divide up Disney’s abundance, why do you ask?

That look you get in your eye when you’re trying to get your hands on somebody else’s money.
