Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough offered his explanation as to why Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was resonating with more of the “rank and file Democrats” than the party’s front-runner Hillary Clinton.
According to Scarborough, Clinton was more of a “neocon” and cozier with Wall Street than either GOP hopefuls Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
“They’ve got thousands and thousands of people right now … that are still going out to see him. There are people that believe in him,” Scarborough said. “And he has decided that he’s not fighting just to win this political race race, he’s fighting to change the Democratic Party because he is afraid, and if I were a Democrat, I would be afraid of the fact that the person that was about to win the nomination was more of a neocon than either of two Republican candidates and more cozy with Wall Street than either of the Republican candidates. She is pro-Wall Street. She’s a corporatist. She’s grown up around billionaires, so much so that when she was saying that she was only worth $100 million, that she was not, quote, ‘that rich,’ because, as you know, the people she hangs out with have nothing in common with the rank and file Democrats that Bernie is speaking to.”
