This Monday during a Fox News town hall, Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders exploded when he was asked about accepting tax breaks that he voted against and why he didn’t send the money back, as he constantly is claiming that the wealthy need to pay more in taxes.
Fox News host Bret Baier first pressed Sanders on the issue, to which Sanders responded: “Pfft…come on…I am, I paid the taxes that I owe…why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes.”
Few moments later, Fox News host Martha MacCallum pressed him again on the issue, asking: “So would you be willing to pay 52% on the money that you made? You can volunteer, you can send it back.”
“You can volunteer too,” Bernie Sanders responded. “Martha, why don’t you give? You make more money than I do.”
“I didn’t suggest a wealth tax,”Fox News host Martha MacCallum replied.
“And she’s not running for president,” Fox News host Bret Baier added.
Bernie Sanders’ entire defense was to point the finger at someone else and deflect.
When asked a question about HIM giving more, he immediately plays the “but what about Trump?” card without answering the question about himself. Pure political deflection.
