OP - you made this whole thing up because IRL no one supports the Bern. They only exist on the interwebs

Lol

Do you understand the difference between a million and a billion?

Saying Trump only became a billionaire because his father gave him a million dollars is like saying I only make $100,000 a year because my father gave me $100 when I was young..


Math..... it's that important.

Trump inherited $400 Million and the company and infrastructure his Daddy built.

All he had to do was change office. Hard work...


He was basically broke in the 90s because of all his bad investments.. common knowledge!
He was then saved by Russian Oligarch money buying rubbish property and selling at loss to launder money.

Yes. Why else would you tell us about your fake wealth?

I don't know any Sanders voters like that.

Maybe it's your small bubble.

Learning a new skill -- good idea for folks that have lost their coal jobs, manufacturing jobs.....you would think some folks would have figured that out years ago.

Math..... it's that important.
Math and understanding how the rich get richer.

Trump was given a million in his early 20's and then inherited 400 million AND also 'used' the company's financial position to finance his business deals.

It's important that we understand how the rich get richer easier and how the rich hold power because of that wealth.

It's naive not to recognize that.



Knowing math means nothing if you don't know other stuff.

Most prefer a rich successful man over a sniveling leftist has-been. America will pass on being converted into Venezuela.

By the way I do have a job; two in fact.
My money is for me and not for thee. And I have three jobs. Rail engineer, machine gun dealer and part 135 pilot.

You have the political/cultural equivalent of Stockholm syndrome.

Direct enough for you?
