REPORT: Sanders campaign’s hashtag backfires as grudge-bearing Dems lash out over 2016
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
A social media campaign aimed at promoting support for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has attracted an awkward mix of die-hard Bernie backers and Democrats still angry over his 2016 run.
The campaign-backed hashtag #MyBernieStory was meant to be a forum for voters to share their personal stories of why they support Sanders. While plenty of supporters have done exactly that, the hashtag has also been hijacked by critics who blame Sanders for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
One vented with her “berniestory” of watching Barack Obama “hand the keys to the Oval to a racist” because “Bernie didn’t know when to sit his a– down in the primary.”
Another pointedly faulted Sanders for not doing enough to boost Clinton.

Okay, since this is trending, here’s #MyBernieStory.
The year was 2016 and Bernie was already long eliminated from contention.
An actual Democrat would have stopped torpedoing the nominee and worked to defeat Trump but Bernie had books to sell.

Also Bernie did terrible with women voters in 2016, so before 🌹 Twitter starts complaining in my mentions, just stop for a second. Look at what women are saying, and what turned us off. This is constructive criticism of women feeling silenced and harassed. Work on it. Do better.

Bernie Sanders did nothing in 2016 to reign in his sexist supporters.
I was called ‘whore’ on multiple occasions and a supporter said I should be raped for supporting Hillary.
To think this couldn’t happen let me remind you of the “Bern the Witch” rally

#MyBernieStory Bernie Sanders has ignited a flame in me which will burn eternally. He has motivated me to get involved and help create an America where the people come first, not the billionaires. #Bernie2020 pic.twitter.com/nty333pFAS

Bernie lives and breathes solidarity. When someone hurts, he hurts. He’s confronted bigotry, racism, and xenophobia his entire life.

I’m 19 years old & I’m voting for @BernieSanders in my first presidential election.
I’m a student activist who wants to be an immigration lawyer & have family on Puerto Rico who’ve seen injustice.

Well, @BernieSanders motivated me to become a #newUScitizen so I could vote for him (after living here as a legal permanent resident since high school, but never before being inspired by ANY pres. candidate). Here I am being sworn in, then voting in FL primary! #myberniestory pic.twitter.com/i2ADDts1VH
