Media Cannot Stop Snarking About Capitalism When Reporting on Sanders’ New House

Recently, Bernie Sanders bought a new house in North Hero, Vermont. He just got done not winning the Democratic nomination after setting a bunch of records for donations and “starting a political revolution.” He’s probably got a lot going on up in his head right now. Surely we must believe the guy deserves a little break and some nice lakefront property.

Kidding! Of course we don’t believe that! Or, at least, the media doesn’t! Here’s how the purchase of his new home is being treated:

That hasn’t stopped publications like the Daily Caller from quipping that by getting a summer home, the Democratic socialist is “[proving] capitalism is alive and well.”
