Last night, Clinton delivered a long speech embracing the liberal extremism advocated by Sanders. NBC’s Chuck Todd said, “I think it was a speech Bernie Sanders could have given:”
Clinton has fully embraced the democratic socialism of Bernie Sanders by pointing to the radical and unrealistic liberal agenda set forth in the Democratic Party Platform, including a $15 minimum wage, free tuition, a new Glass-Stegall Act, and skepticism toward free trade. When speaking about the platform, Clinton said, “We wrote it together – now let’s go out and make it happen together.”
