Listen: Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Buddha Jr discussed on The Young Turks
"Recently, people to judge was in New Hampshire at a campaign stop and during his campaign, stop he had some commentary in regard to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Take a look. Disinfection that comes from seeing that the numbers are fine. Like unemployment's low like all that like cechini growing, and yet a lot of neighborhoods and families are living like like this recovery half. They're stuck it just kind of turns you against the system in general. And then you're more likely to want to vote to blow up assistant, which could lead you somebody like Bernie, and it could lead to something like Trump because how we got where we all. People are angry about what he said there and the commentary. I'm seeing alleges that he is comparing Bernie Sanders to Trump, but I didn't see it that way. I actually believe that he made a point that was completely fine. And it's the point that we've made on this show. So I I'm not really understanding the criticism. Don't get me wrong. There are some positions on policy that Buddha. Judge has that I think are worth dissecting and looking into. But I think what he said there is actually accurate. Okay. So partly agree. So the, of course, the reason people are upset is because it appears comparing Trump voters to Bernie voters, and well one side is the most progressive people in the country and the other side of the most conservative people in the country, so little apples and oranges there. But I do of course, see what you're saying. And I wanted to do that as maybe an ironic defensive Buddha j just comments, which is that there is a s- wave in the country, but Buddha judge is not trying to appeal to that populous wave, and I don't know if he knows this or anyone in the mainstream media is caught onto this, but Trump one so it's kind of a funny criticism to be like, oh Bernie Sanders is trying to appeal to voters in the way that Trump did has opposed the way Hillary Clinton did and who won the election again. So. Yeah. So I think that if it was meant as a criticism, I think he's got it all wrong. You're saying he might not have meant it as a criticism. He, but he doesn't seem to agree with Sanders on a lot of policy positions. So it seems like he does and he did say this system, which doesn't seem like a compliment. Well, let me just say it appears he doesn't agree with Bernie Sanders on policy, but it's hard to say because he's not a firm believer in being clear about what is policies are. In fact, he said that he said that himself. I don't think it's a good idea to be very specific about detailed policy while you're running which I think is completely wrong. But nonetheless, I don't think he's trying to make the claim that Bernie Sanders and his voters are similar policy wise to Trump and his supporters. I think what he's trying to do is draw this comparison regarding frustration with the establishment and frustration with how the system has failed them and the system has failed them and continues to do so. And you're right in that Buddha JR. As someone who is positioning himself as more of a moderate should be aware. That his position is not popular. Right. That's centrism centrist ideology is not popular.."
