Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders went on The View and that turned out to be a really bad idea after he was exposed for being abusive towards his staff, but of course he dodged the questions and tried to change the subject.
The video below shows Meghan McCain asking Bernie Sanders about being abusive or tough on staff.
Sanders got out of dodge.
McCain pressed for answers, suggesting it was her job to ask the hard questions.
Sanders put his foot on the pedal and he was OUT.
He tried to change the subject from him being abusive to staffers to talking about climate change and the planet.
Here’s the rich socialist trying to avoid himself looking bad for being abusive to staffers, but he looks even worse by changing the subject.

What about Sanders and being abusive to staffers? Let’s take a look at a story published on August 26, 2015, titled “Anger Management: Sanders Fights for Employees, Except His Own.”
Paul Heintz’s article in Seven Days, Vermont’s independent news outlet, started by reminding folks that Bernie Sanders was running for president in 2016 and the NY Times called him the “grumpy grandpa.”
But that was the least damaging part of the article for Sanders.
Several quotes from former staffers blasted the socialist for his abusive treatment of his employees. Somewhat ironic considering he claims to fight for employees of other companies, but treats his own like third-rate citizens.
Heintz stated that some staffers “characterize the senator as rude, short-tempered and, occasionally, downright hostile. Though Sanders has spent much of his life fighting for working Vermonters, they say he mistreats the people working for him.”
Then he listed a few quotes from the staffers.
“As a supervisor, he was unbelievably abusive,” says one former campaign staffer, who claims to have endured frequent verbal assaults. The double standard was clear: “He did things that, if he found out that another supervisor was doing in a workplace, he would go after them. You can’t treat employees that way.”
“Bernie was an a**hole,” says a Democratic insider who worked with Sanders on the campaign trail. “Just unnecessarily an a**hole.”
“He yelled in meetings all the time,” says one of Sanders’ former Senate staffers. “He’d yell, ‘I don’t want to hear excuses! I want to get it done!’”
“Excuse me,” he snapped. “Shut up! You don’t have the microphone.”
Fast forward to more recent times, just last year in December 2018, Time published a story titled “Former Bernie Sanders Staffers Voice Concerns About ‘Sexual Harassment and Violence’ on 2016 Campaign.”That’s right, folks.
Not only is Sanders the angry constipated bitter grandpa towards his staffers, but it appears as though women working on his campaign were getting sexually harassed.
Doesn’t say much for the #MeToo movement when a team of Democrats are sexually harassing each other in a predatory culture run by Democrats.
The article stated that “more than two dozen of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ former campaign staffers have signed a letter asking to meet with the Vermont Senator to discuss “the issue of sexual harassment and violence on the 2016 campaign” as Sanders eyes a potential 2020 run.”
This isn’t one person being harassed, this is dozens. That’s a predatory culture being run by Democrats and Bernie Sanders is at the helm.
No wonder he changes the topic when he’s asked hard questions.
