On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer dismissed the candidacy of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is vying for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
According to Krauthammer, Sanders bid isn’t to be taken seriously and he noted the past failures of socialist candidates to back up his claim.
“Look, he is not running for the presidency,” Krauthammer said. “He knows he won’t win the presidency. Even though he whispers he is running for presidency. Look, Kim Kardashian has a better shot at winning the presidency than Bernie Sanders. We have never had a socialist run. Seriously, we will never have one. Norman Thomas, the Socialist Party leader, ran six times. Best he ever did was 2 percent of the vote. Bernie won’t get 2 percent.”
