Self-described socialist Bernie Sanders, a leader of the Democratic Party, acknowledged that the Democrats’ brand may be worse than Trump’s brand right now.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a self-described socialist and a leader in the Democratic Party right now, said on Thursday night that the Democratic Party’s brand “may be” worse than President Trump’s brand.
“He may be,” Sanders said, in response to a question from CNN’s Anderson Cooper on whether Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) was right when he said the Democratic Party brand is worse than Trump’s brand in some parts of the country.
“I speak as the longest-serving independent in American congressional history, the Democratic brand is pretty bad,” Sanders continued. “I think the Trump brand is also pretty bad, as is the Republican brand.”
Still, the comments from Sanders are a bit surprising given the Democratic Party has effectively given the keys of the party to the socialist senator, and given that Sanders and DNC Chair Tom Perez conducted a cross-country, but messy, “unity” tour together.
