Ainsley Earhardt Suggests Bernie Sanders Fans Should be Sent ‘On a Class Trip’ to Venezuela

Bernie Sanders is set to release a new book at the end of August: Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution. But the Fox & Friends crew is wasting little time bashing the tome, and its author.

On Tuesday, Fox Business Channel host Kennedy stopped by to talk about the upcoming release. And the former MTV VJ promptly mocked the Vermont Senator and his large millennial fan base.

“As he’s creeping into his late 90s, I think he’s fresher and more relevant than ever,” Kennedy mockingly said of the 75-year-old Sanders and his appeal to the youth vote.

Mostly, the Fox & Friends gang objects to Sanders — who identifies as a Democratic Socialist –because of the way in which his rise has resulted in a growth of popularity for Socialism.

“College professors, and academics lived in a bubble for decades teaching virtues of socialism,” Kennedy said. “What they need is a giant class trip of everyone brainwashed.”

“To Venezuela,” Ainsley Earhardt promptly said, interjecting. She added, of the Bernie Sanders youth base, “They don’t know what socialism is.
