A billionaire who heavily contributes to the Democratic Party says he “profoundly” dislikes “communist” Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban told the Hollywood Reporter that Sanders is unique among the pack of 23 candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination because of his far-left agenda.
“We love all 23 candidates,” Haim told the Reporter. “No, minus one. I profoundly dislike Bernie Sanders, and you can write it. I don’t give a hoot. He’s a communist under the cover of being a socialist. He thinks that every billionaire is a crook. He calls us ‘the billionaire class.’ And he attacks us indiscriminately. ‘It’s the billionaire class, the bad guys.’ This is how communists think. So, 22 are great. One is a disaster zone.”
Saban also noted that Sanders falls far short of his expectations on America’s relationship with Israel, asking if the senator is “out of your freaking mind” when he blandly supports Israel’s existence as a nation.
With Bernie dropping rapidly in the polls, perhaps Saban isn't the only person thinking this way.
