Robert O’Brien denied that Russia is trying to interfere in the 2020 election in Trump’s favor, and brought up Bernie Sanders’ 1988 honeymoon in Moscow.
Yes Sanders honeymooned in Moscow as opposed to Trump who held a beauty pageant in Moscow, took money from Moscow investors, hired aides linked to Moscow, heaped praise on Putin, and publicly asked Russia to get his opponent’s emails in the midst of the 2016 election campaign. https://t.co/4uThdP4GB3

The most ugly, xenophobic, and casually imperialist thing in here is the handwringing about how Sanders went to Nicaragua and the Soviet Union in the ‘80s. On top of Cold War and dirty wars, it’s this idea that these places are not worth going to at all https://t.co/OUFx1l3Oc5
