On Monday, Socialist Bernie Sanders held a town hall event with Fox News hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallahan.
The Socialist was asked many questions especially relating to his hypocritical stances considering he is a millionaire and belongs to the top 1%. Sanders has recently announced that he is a millionaire because of his book sales.
URGENT 2020 POLL: Trump or Bernie?
“When you wrote the book and made the money, isn’t that the definition of capitalism and the American dream?” Baier asked.
After a long pause, Sanders replied, “No.”
He then went on to beat around the bush and not actually answer the question and instead talked about college degrees and “clean water.”

So is selling a bunch of books on the internet and in stores NOTcapitalism like Bernie Sanders stated?
FACT CHECK: FALSE!
According to Investopedia, “Capitalism is an economic system in which capital goods are owned by private individuals or businesses. The production of goods and services is based on supply and demand in the general market (market economy), rather than through central planning (planned economy or command economy).”
This is exactly what Sanders is doing. Sanders, a private individual, is using a book printing private business, to print and produce a goodin the general market that he then sells for a profit. CAPITALISM confirmed.
Sanders is literally becoming rich because of capitalism but wants to now abolish it and replace it with socialism. Instead of admitting to this fact, Sanders lied to the entire country by saying, “no” this is not capitalism.
Just another hypocritical political hack.
This wasn’t the only time that Sanders was called out for his hypocrisy. Sanders got stumped when Fox News Host Bret Baier asked him the one simple question that we have all been wondering.
“Your taxes do show that you are a millionaire,” Baier started. “You did make a million in 2016 and 2017. But your marginal tax rate was 26% because of President Trump’s tax cuts so why not say ‘I’m leading this revolution, I’m not going to take those [cuts]’”

This question really seemed to stump the radical socialist. “”Pfft…huuuu…come on….” he said at a loss for words.
He continued by completely ignoring the question and changing the topic to President Trump’s tax returns.
“I am, I paid the taxes that I owe…why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes.” he said.
One problem Bernie. Trump isn’t the one who is saying that he wants to tax the rich at a 90% rate… YOU ARE. So why aren’t you offering 90% of what you make to the government considering it was YOUR idea to tax the top 1% at this rate and YOU are the top one percent?
Hey Bernie, why not pay more taxes than you owe?

Is this really who we want running our country? Someone who wants to change the framework of our country which made us so successful as a nation? Not only does he want to change our country for the worse, but Sanders is making it clear that he is a hypocrite, liar and con man who does not lead by example.
