AC, Jake Tapper and Chris Cuomo seem to love to trot out Bernie Sanders on their shows and maybe it's because he's always highly critical of ACTUAL Democrats like Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party overall. Sanders refuses to join the party but uses them whenever he's running a campaign and seems to spend more time kissing up to trash like Sarah Sanders and disgusting Trump supporters. Bernie Sanders is not a Dem and doesn't speak for me and many others in the party. I'm still pissed with the Berniebros like Susan Sarandon/Rosario Dawson and others who trashed Hillary and said she was just as bad as Trump knowing full well the peril the country would be in if Trump got in--they had the luxury of badmouthing her because they're in a privileged position and won't be as badly affected by the scary conservative Supreme Court that THEIR actions contributed to bringing about. Some folks are even out there demanding that Pres. Obama DO SOMETHING, well he and Hillary warned and warned that DEMOCRACY was on the line and the 'purity' Berniebros and mocked or ignored them--he did his job, now it's up to the rest of us who want this country to live up to its promise to do ours. I hope to see ALL Democrats in Congress blocking every SCOTUS nominee that comes through--Democrats in Congress have to fight for us, especially now, otherwise why are they even there? No SCOTUS pick until after the midterms just like McConnell did when he refused to have a single hearing for Merrick Garland. Time to get tough Dems, even if things seem especially bleak and hopeless now.

while i agree with your bernie criticism and am annoyed by his constant presence on ac360, pres obama could have done a lot more. he should have made the russia invest public. why did he care so much about what mcconnell would say? and he should have fought harder for merrick garland. he was the president, he had the power. I know it is easy to blame the press for everything, and they deserve criticism. but just because pres obama is charismatic and attractive and well spoken, he gets worshipped. He did a lot of good, but he made some fatal mistakes, and it should be ok to say that. Because of those mistakes now trump gets to pick a second SCOTUS.

@pragya, McConnell said he was going to make sure it looked like Obama was tipping the scale for Hillary if he made that Russian investigation public and in the highly charged partisan environment at that time, that's exactly how the press would've portrayed it. McConnell and the Republicans wouldn't even consider a single hearing for Merrick Garland, they were determined to stop the president at every turn, it was unprecedented. I think the left should've taken to the streets to protest what McConnell was doing. All we had to do was vote for Hillary and none of this would've happened, but no, some of us didn't vote or stupidly cast a 'protest' vote and we got stuck with the clown. President Obama warned us about the threat we were under but 'purity' and denigrating Hillary was more important to those dolts and now here we are. I think President Obama was in an impossible position.
