Bernie has obviously lost, again.
Maybe it was fraud but it doesn’t matter because he won’t say it was fraud, and is just a little bitch who gets slapped around by everyone.
But telling him “people will die if you don’t drop out” is just nasty and, I dare say, anti-democratic.
Bernie Sanders will “assess” his bid for the White House after getting thumped by Joe Biden in the latest round of primaries, his campaign manager said Wednesday.
“The next primary contest is at least three weeks away,” campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement.
“Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with supporters to assess his campaign,” he added.
“In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring we will take care of the working people and the most vulnerable.”
The 78-year-old self-described socialist has yet to make a statement after he took a drubbing Tuesday in Florida, Illinois and Arizona, where Biden pulled away with an enormous delegate lead — 1,147 to 861.
Sanders is facing mounting pressure to exit the race amid the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“His campaign is undeniably dead and voters will undeniably die if he doesn’t do the human thing and drop out now,” one top Bloomberg adviser told The Post.
Bernie’s whole thing was apparently never about winning, but about sending a message, and he can continue to send the message by refusing to drop out. Bullying him into dropping out with threats of mass death is beyond the pale.
I think he will probably drop out within the next 24 hours.
Sen. Bernie Sanders grew angry when asked about his campaign plans. During a gaggle with reporters in the Capitol, I asked Sanders about his timeframe for making a decision, and he lashed out: "I'm dealing with a fucking global crisis. You know, we're dealing with."

I hope Tulsi launches a third party run.
