What Bernie Sanders said about these rights for convicted terrorists will make your blood boil

The latest polling shows Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the pack for the Democrat nomination in 2020.

If he wins, he will challenge Trump in the general election.

But his support could be plummeting after he said something insane about rights for convicted terrorists.

Bernie Sanders is a socialist with a lot of crazy ideas.

And somehow he continues to be popular among many voters, particularly young voters who support his socialist agenda.

But there might be no idea of his that is crazier than his belief that convicted criminals currently serving hard time should be allowed to vote from prison.

In recent weeks he hinted at the position, with many questioning how far he is willing to go with it.

But, in a recent town hall, he made it clear he believes every criminal deserves to vote while they’re still behind bars, including the Boston Marathon bomber and convicted sexual predators.

Fox News reports:

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday defended his stance for granting voting rights to criminals in prison, including the Boston Marathon bomber and convicted sexual assaulters.

During a CNN town hall on Monday night, Harvard student Anne Carlstein asked if his position would support “enfranchising people” like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who she noted is a “convicted terrorist and murderer,” as well as those “convicted of sexual assault,” whose votes could have a “direct impact on women’s rights.”

Sanders first responded by saying he wanted a “vibrant democracy” with “higher voter turnout” and blasted “cowardly Republican governors” who he said were “trying to suppress the vote.”

The Vermont senator then argued that the Constitution says “everybody can vote” and that “some people in jail can vote.”

CNN host Chris Cuomo was clearly taken aback by his candid statement, even giving him the chance to walk it back.

But Sanders refused, instead doubling down on his position that even the Boston Bomber should be allowed to vote from prison.

Many think that once a criminal has served their time that their voting rights should be restored.

Further, most Americans understand that giving felons the right to vote while they’re behind bars is a ridiculous position.

But Sanders doesn’t care, likely because he believes these terrorists will vote for him.

    Bernie is just another deranged communist! I have never seen a more disagreeable old fart with a permanent case of a confrontational attitude in my entire life. He was so abrupt and grouchy in the Townhall Fox News had, I could not believe how he responded to Martha and Bret. He is plain and simply a mean old man! I cannot believe how strong his support is and how he appeals to millennials. That age young people are usually so sensitive, everything hurts their feelings and you have to handle them with kid gloves but, they love Bernie. I guess it is because he is “saying” what they were educated to believe in our liberal education system.
    Bernie is so mean, he makes President Trump look as gentle as a pre-kindergarten teacher! 🙂

    This has nothing to do with the victims or survivors of these felons. It takes a criminal to understand criminals. These democrats are criminals and they are very proud of it. They believe their own lies because their brains are weak and they become democrats. Democrats are anti- God and Republicans for pro-God. They do not have the mental capacity to do good or be honest. They also have vile hearts which explains their hatred for goodness and truth.

Everything that comes out of his mouth is STUPID an will cost American taxpayers tons of money if he were elected. Bernie. Your too old. RETIRE. There needs to be term limits so these old coots can’t make a living out of these seats
