Bernie Sanders is quickly gaining traction in the polls ahead of the Iowa Caucuses, and some think it’s still possible he could become the Democratic nominee.
But his latest appearance on a late night comedy show is changing everything.
And the last person he ever expected humiliated Sanders on live TV and it could mean the end of his presidential campaign.
Sanders is only weeks away from the Iowa Caucuses and poised to be a top three finisher.
But Stephen Colbert may have sunk his campaign with one question.
Colbert hosted Sanders on his show and asked a question that forced Bernie Sanders to give an embarrassing answer.
Colbert asked how Sanders how he intends to travel back and forth from Iowa and the campaign to D.C. to vote on impeachment.
That’s when Bernie Sanders was forced to own the fact he will be using a private jet each time.
Sanders has the audacity to use a private jet while he preaches about how global warming is destroying the planet.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) admitted during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday that he will use a private jet in order to travel back and forth between the Senate impeachment trial in D.C. and early voting states — a move that stands in stark contrast to his firm position on combating climate change.
“Word is, we have heard reports — and I would like to find out if you can confirm these — that in order to sit for the Senate trial and campaign in Iowa, you’re going to be using private jets at night,” Colbert said, referencing reports indicating Sanders’ purported plans to increase his private jet usage during the Senate impeachment trial.
“Probably one jet,” Sanders clarified.
“Multiple rides in a private jet,” Colbert said.
“Yes, yes,” Sanders confirmed.
This is a major slip up before the first big test of the 2020 Democratic candidates.
Democratic voters can see how much of hypocrite the Senator really is.
This interview could destroy his credibility to voters concerned about the environment.
The polls are tight and losing Iowa would place Bernie behind other candidates like Elizabeth Warren as they head into other states like New Hampshire, where Warren has home field advantage.
Stephen Colbert, of all people, could very well be Bernie Sanders’ undoing.
What do you think?
Will Bernie Sanders win the Democrat nomination?
