Joy Reid: Sanders Keeps Making ‘Excuses’ for Why He’s Not Getting More Votes
Bernie Sanders said on Meet the Press today that he’s losing states because more people don’t vote. Later on in the show, Joy Reid called him out for making that his fallback.
Chuck Todd observed Sanders’ line was an “interesting new excuse,” and Reid agreed that all his excuses are a problem.
“You say you’re running a political revolution,” she said, “but you keep parsing––’Well, we just don’t have the right kind of voter motivated enough or informed enough.'”
She said if Sanders is seriously leading a ‘revolutionary movement based on lifting up people at the bottom, then they should be hearing your message or you might not be doing something correctly.”
José Díaz-Balart agreed with the larger point of Sanders’ that more people need to be voting, while Nicolle Wallace was absolutely baffled why Sanders is staying in the race so long.
