Despite his popularity with clueless millennials who naively believe that socialism is the answer to all that ails them, Bernie Sanders’ run for the White House is already experiencing stiff headwinds.
Not only has socialist paradise Venezuela imploded at the worst possible time for the braying old communist goat but a video of a shirtless Sanders and his wife Jane partying with the Rooskies during his 1988 honeymoon trip to the Soviet Union is raising eyebrows as it makes its way across the internet.
In the video (taken at a time when the modern cellphone video cam didn’t exist) Bernie is partying with a large party of vodka-sodden, cigarette smoking Soviets and having the time of his life, so much so that one wonders why he didn’t relocate to Russia permanently.

Forget dancing queen AOC or bangin’ Beto or even that unsettling video of teenage Ted Cruz plotting world domination — this grainy footage of a topless, hammered Bernie Sanders singing “This Land Is Your Land” in the Soviet Union blows them all out of the political shark-filled water.
Travis Justin, a Navy veteran and leader of “Draft Beto 2020,” a group that is urging Texas representative Beto O’Rourke to seek presidential election, apparently first posted the video to Twitter. “Recently discovered footage from 1988 reveals a shirtless Bernie Sanders with his wife, Jane, on their honeymoon in the USSR, drunkenly singing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ with a group of presumed Soviets,” Justin captioned the clip, which was surfaced by another Sanders detractor on Twitter.

If he wasn’t such an insufferable crank and unsympathetic character it would be easy to feel some pity for Bernie because even before the emergence of the vodka-soaked party video hit social media, there were already party activists who were promoting the idea that Sanders was another Kremlin sleeper agent.

But have no sympathy for this particular devil because he himself joined the fraudulent scam that President Trump is a deeply embedded Russian mole while blindly ignoring the probability that it would come around full circle and bite him in the ass.
