Why is Bernie Sanders in Vatican City not New York City?

by Elizabeth Landers, CNN  |  published on April 15, 2016

Days before the critical New York primary, one Democratic presidential candidate is somewhere he can’t rack up any last-minute primary votes.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is at the Vatican to address a conference on social, economic and environmental issues.

Sanders landed in Rome on Friday morning, traveling in an escorted motorcade to the Vatican. His wife Jane, their four children and a few grandchildren are traveling with him.

He entered through the Perugino Gate of Vatican City, where he was greeted by a dozen or so expat supporters bearing signs reading, “Rome is berning.”

Sanders began his 15-minute speech to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences with a showing of solidarity and admiration for Pope Francis, emphasizing their agreement on economic justice.

    We are far down in the pit when the likes of Bernie Sanders can get as many supporters as he has. It shows something in wrong with the thinking in this country. Sanders supporters have to be stupid to think that the government can supply every need without getting paid for it. The payment: confiscation of your pay, your property, your freedom to choose, and your method of transportation. It would be like living under the rule of a middle ages king. You will have no freedom of speech to complain. You will just have to take what the government hands out and you will have no recourse because the constitution will be destroyed. It is almost the same if one supports Hillary.

    This is just too hypocritical, the height of hypocrisy, and it is amazing to see how many foolish people will just eat this up. He enters a walled city, through a gate, that holds billions upon billions of dollars, with an ideology that everyone else should be equal, except for those that run the “show”.
    I thought that Bernie was anti-Christian, an agnostic, if not an atheist, oh well, when seeking votes based on stupidity, you can be whatever you want when you need to be.

      I have a long-time Italian friend, who has a sister married to a member to the Sicilian mofia family. I know as a fact that the Vatican laundries billions of mob money. Vatican is prominent member of world shadow government. And Bernie is selling his soul to the devil (pope) for high dollar financing. Bet on it! $$$

        No doubt what-so-ever about that.

    Why wouldn’t the Muslim-Marxist “Dope Francis”, False Prophet be meeting with the communist? The other half of the tag team of evil, the anti-Christ is off stage awaiting his stage call – I’m beginning to believe it might just be the other Muslim-Marxist jihadist in the “Outhouse”!

    How did he pay or this,, did he go to confess

  • Ramon1710 .

    Commie Bernie should not be addressing. He should be listening. Listening about the Christian work ethic, and how it goes against lazy human nature. Listening to II Thessalonians 3:10, where it says that those who are able to work, but don’t, should not eat. Listening about how “Thou shalt not steal” and redistribute. Seems like Commie Francis should be exposed to the same principles, as well.
