Like Trump and his cult-like followers, Sen. Sanders and his loyal fans just can’t seem to get over the results of the 2016 election. In particular, the Sandersites believe the DNC failed to support his campaign as fully as they did Secretary Clinton’s. (But they are silent on the DNC’s treatment of the other candidate in the race, former Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland.)
Never mind that Sanders was not a Democrat throughout his long career — until April 30, 2015, the day he filed to run for president. He joined the party that day, and yet expected to get the full benefit of a lifelong member.
