While on CBS, Bernie Sanders rips on Obama for giving a $400k speech to Wall Street. He made sure note that Obama is his friend, but he is not happy with this move.
Don’t forget that Bernie Sanders just purchased a beach house. Before this he dropped out of the race and backed failed candidate Hillary Clinton.
Here is how it went down.
CBS: “President Obama is going to speak at an event here in New York, a Wall Street investment bank for a $400,000 fee. You were critical of Hillary Clinton for taking money like that. What do you say about President Obama making an even larger fee?”
Bernie Sanders: “Look, President Obama is a friend of mine…I think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of Wall Street and the big money interests, I think it is unfortunate that President Obama is doing this….Wall Street has tremendous power and I wish the President would not be giving a speech like this.”
You know Bernie absolutely had to bring up the Trump administration and his advisors. While Bernie has a big-time issue with Trump’s financial advisor, Gary Cohn the former President of Goldman Sachs, he had no issue at all with Obama’s entire staff being from Wall Street. Watch the video.
