Bernie Sanders has a unique quality about him: he’s a politician whose message hasn’t changed since the day he got into public office. He’s honest, he’s open and he progresses with the times. That’s why the Senator didn’t let a media hack like Chuck Todd dilute his legitimacy and drive a false narrative.
That’s exactly what Todd attempted to do on the weekend’s Meet the Press. When the topic of the tragic Lafayette shooting came up, Todd attempted to paint Sander’s as “pro-NRA,” saying “You’ve continue[d] to walk, straddle a line here. You talk about how your sort-of-pro-NRA votes in Vermont having to do with being about Vermont, not about the nation as a whole.”
