Crazy Bernie Sanders uses video of attack on Trump in online political ad

On Sunday, the Bernie Sanders campaign used video of an attack against President Trump in a political ad posted to Instagram on Sunday.

“Want to really scare Trump? Help us show the strength of our campaign to defeat him—chip in before our fundraising deadline at midnight at the link in bio,” read the caption on the video.

And of course, the Bernie Sanders Instagram account is “verified.”

“The Bernie Sanders campaign is using footage of an assassination attempt against Trump as a political ad. This is a direct incitement to violence by @BernieSanders,” Mike Cernovich wrote on Twitter.


The ad has been viewed over 1.3 million times as of this writing, with many approving the violent message.

Response on Twitter is pretty much what you’d expect.

The incident, by the way, took place in March 2016, when anti-Trump protester Thomas Dimassimo — who was also believed to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders — jumped a security fence and stormed Trump on stage.   Prior to that, he said his goal was to be a martyr.

The Fairborn, Ohio, man was charged with inducing panic and disorderly conduct.

This, by the way, is the modern Democrat Party.  Let that sink in.
