Yes, that’s right. While you still #FeelTheBern because the #FightFor15 got you laid off when your boss realized a machine with a better bedside manner could do your job, that last $27 you sent to your socialist dreamboat Bernie Sanders? He just bought his third home with it. Yes, I said that correctly. His third home. And no, it’s not a shack.
The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a lakefront camp in North Hero.
Sanders’ new crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island — facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally.
“We’ve traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips,” Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, told Seven Days in a written statement. “We’ve been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.”
Go ahead. Let the anger flow through you…

I suppose if you’re stingy with your own money while you live off of the government and sell socialism to the senseless, stupid masses, buying your third home is easy. Because socialism for you, capitalism for Bernie. And hey, we love capitalism here. We believe people should be able to purchase whatever it is they want with their own money. A castle, a shack, a new BMW, or a lake house. Okay? Okay.
Problem here is Bernie Sanders is the same guy who has denounced free market capitalism whenever he could, while asking for donations from his fawning socialist pawns. Socialist pawns who hate people who have things like multiple homes. Funding he used to continue fighting the “rich one percent.” That guy, that same hero of the free-college-for-all, just plunked down a cool $600k. For his third opulent home. Irony thy name is Sanders.
Is there an echo in here? Maybe that’s because the new furniture hasn’t been moved into Bernie’s pad. That can sometimes happen…
Now, is $600K a $2.2 million estate? No it isn’t. Bernie Sanders isn’t like George Clooney with a villa in France. Or Italy. Wherever it is Clooney has his estate(s). Except Bernie Sanders branded himself as a “man of the people” which his supporters bought wholesale. How many people do you know have a vacation home? Anybody? Okay, cool so maybe you know someone. How many of those people have three homes? Of those people you know, how many preach about the evil one percent not paying their fair share, while asking for your support and donations… only to buy a lake front vacation home for $600K?
We really must bring some rugs into this house. The echo is disturbing. Decor tip for Bernie here? Use the #FeelTheBern sign design for the welcome mat. It’ll really set the tone for the new abode.
Also, if you voted for Bernie Sanders thinking he was a soft, warm, caring little socialist love bunny, do yourself a favor. Walk into the bathroom. Stare at yourself in the mirror. Repeat these words: “I am a gullible, thoughtless, cotten-headed ninnymuggin. Next time I’ll use critical thinking skills, not feelings, to choose a candidate.” Then slap yourself. Once for each cheek. It’ll help reinforce math skills (in Algebra, do unto one side as you do unto the other, after all). Plus equality. Pro-tip? Maybe do a little research into this capitalism thing, since even your hero Sanders seems down for it. When it’s his own money.
What must Jean-Guy think?
