WATCH: A Soviet video of Bernie Sanders just leaked and ended his 2020 dreams
Polls show Bernie Sanders, who turns 78 this year, as one of the Democrat frontrunners for 2020.
He hasn’t officially announced, but his campaign couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start.
Now a thirty-year-old video was just leaked that unraveled his presidential campaign.
Bernie Sanders pleaded ignorance when sexual harassment claims were made by staffers on his 2016 presidential campaign.
He’s waited for that story to blow over before announcing his candidacy for 2020.
But now a video has emerged of Bernie Sanders shirtless and intoxicated with his wife drinking and singing in a bar in the Soviet Union.
Forget dancing queen AOC or bangin’ Beto or even that unsettling video of teenage Ted Cruz plotting world domination — this grainy footage of a topless, hammered Bernie Sanders singing “This Land Is Your Land” in the Soviet Union blows them all out of the political shark-filled water.
Travis Justin, a Navy veteran and leader of “Draft Beto 2020,” a group that is urging Texas representative Beto O’Rourke to seek presidential election, apparently first posted the video to Twitter. “Recently discovered footage from 1988 reveals a shirtless Bernie Sanders with his wife, Jane, on their honeymoon in the USSR, drunkenly singing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ with a group of presumed Soviets,” Justin captioned the clip, which was surfaced by another Sanders detractor on Twitter.
While the video is embarrassing for Senator Sanders, it has greater implications.
The Senator has a history of sympathizing with socialist and even communist regimes.
Sanders has openly admired countries such as Cuba, Venezuela, and even the Soviet Union for embracing socialism.
The video shows how much he celebrates socialist and communist economic policies.
As Sanders continues to accumulate problems, his chances of becoming the 2020 Democrat nominee may dwindle.
