Chris Stirewalt: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren ‘in a lunatic derby’
“By the time Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are done, they will be promising each and every American a new Buick LaCrosse in their parking lot,” the Fox News politics editor claimed.
“They are in this lunatic derby. This is why Democratic leaders are rightly afraid of what’s going on. Because, if Sanders – who is now promising to forgive the student loans of everybody, basically, ‘throw in another trillion dollars,’ – if either Sanders or Warren get the nomination, there is a reality that Democrats won’t just miss out on taking the White House back, but they could get cleaned out in the Senate.”
Stirewalt claimed there is a danger the two candidates’ platforms could cause Democrats to also lose control of the House.
“This stuff is way outside the mainstream,” he claimed. “That’s what Democrats are afraid of.”
During a speech Saturday at Clinton College in Rock Hill, S.C., Sanders claimed graduates are put in an “absurd position of having to pay that debt off for decades.”
“They can afford to have kids. They can’t afford to buy their own home. Well, we are going to change that.”
