Bernie Sanders Supporter Bashes Hillary Clinton from Her Own Stage: ‘Trapped in World of Elite,’ ‘Lost Grip of Average Person’ Life

NEW YORK CITY, New York — The revolution continues, even though its original leader may have sold out.

Just a few days before the general election, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton and her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) still can’t unite her party. Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, her Democratic primary rival, are disrupting her campaign’s efforts to take on GOP nominee Donald J. Trump, and in Iowa on Saturday one prominent Sanders backer was actually escorted out of a Clinton campaign event for urging those present not to vote for Clinton—for which he was cheered by the crowd.
Kaleb Vanfosson, the president of Iowa State University’s Students for Bernie chapter, bashed Hillary Clinton and told rally-goers at her own campaign event not to vote for her. He was cheered.
He opened his remarks by bashing Donald Trump on student loan debt, but then surprisingly turned to bashing Hillary Clinton from her own stage. “Unfortunately, Hillary doesn’t really care about this issue either,” Vanfosson said. “The only thing she cares about is pleasing her donors, the billionaires who fund her campaign. The only people that really trust Hillary are Goldman Sachs, CitiGroup can trust Hillary, the military industrial complex can trust Hillary. Her good friend Henry Kissinger can trust Hillary.”
The crowd at the Clinton-Kaine event erupted in applause.

“She is so trapped in the world of the elite that she has completely lost grip on what it’s like to be an average person,” Vanfosson continued. “She doesn’t care. Voting for another lesser of two evils, there’s no point.”
