Bernie Sanders Rallies Thousands In The Rain At Seattle’s Key Arena

It has been surreal watching the US media pandering to Donald Trump and lionizing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders has been almost entirely ignored, especially by Fox and CNN but the other networks as well.

It’s over for Bernie they proclaim, attempting to dissuade his supporters from continuing in this hopeless cause.

Don’t fall for it. This nomination is far from over but seems riddled with the same corruption that taints most US elections sinc

The next contests favour Bernie Sanders, just as the contests in the South favoured Clinton. I strongly suspect that the Democratic Party insiders private polling shows Sanders with far more support than that released by the corporate pollsters.

Bernie Sanders may be a long shot, but so was Barack Obama at this stage.

When 25000 plus people stand in the rain and drizzle to hear a politician speak, something is afoot. Nice to see the Seattle Times providing decent coverage, of course Seattle is feeling the ‘Bern.’

Thousands lined up in the drizzle at Seattle Center on Sunday to hear Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders bring his anti-billionaire message to Washington ahead of this week’s caucuses.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders brought his message of a “political revolution” to a boisterous rally at Seattle’s KeyArena on Sunday, avoiding mention of Hillary Clinton — his rival in this week’s Democratic caucuses — while trashing Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Taking the stage at 5:40 p.m. to deafening cheers, Sanders immediately launched into an attack on Trump, saying the U.S. will never elect someone “who insults Mexicans, who insults women, who insults African Americans.”
