McLaughlin: Sanders ‘Mentally Trapped,’ Sounds More Eugene Debs Than 21st Century Candidate

On Friday, “McLaughlin Group” host John McLaughlin presented Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with the “Most Stagnant Thinker” award for 2015.

McLaughlin said, “The award [for Most Stagnant Thinker] goes to Bernie Sanders, who seems mentally trapped in the early heyday of Socialism, with his ultra-polarized Democratic Party, where centrists have been squeezed out by liberals, and with speeches sounding more like a nostalgia fest for the five times candidate of the Socialist Party of America, Eugene V. Debs, than a 21st century campaign.”
