Perhaps Bernie's memory is slipping away at this point, so maybe we can excuse him. Bernie Sanders tells rich people they shouldn't own so many yacths. Meanwhile, Bernie owns 3 houses. These are not just small houses, either. Recently he purchased a $600,000 vacation home on the beach on the Lake Champlain Islands. He also owns homes in Burlington, Vermont and Washington DC. Socialist crackpot Bernie Sanders is living pretty high on the hog. So needless to say, it was pretty disgusting when he tweeted out this gem on Thursday night.
How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can't have it all.

It was reported that Bernie Sanders' wife wrecked a college in Vermont. How did she do that? How else, excessive spending. She still received a $200,000 severance package when she left the university. Here is what she had to say about the vacation home.
We've been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne's Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.
Also, while Bernie Sanders wants the wealthy to put almost all of their earnings into taxes, he is not eager to do the same with his earnings. In 2014, Bernie Sanders paid only a 13.5% effective tax rate.
For some reason people find it surprising to see the Socialist living such a lavish lifestyle. It shouldn't come at a surprise at all. In Cuba, the Castros are worth upwards of a billion dollars. People were starving in the Soviet Union while Stalin had more money than he knew what to do with. The list goes on and on when it comes to Socialists who don't carry their end of the bargain.
Socialist is fine if you are at the bottom and are not willing to do any kind of work. Also, if you are at the top in a Socialist government that allows you to pretty much indulge as much as you'd like. It's those hard working people in the middle who stand to gain nothing from a Socialist government.
Oh yeah and the tweet above. Ben Shapiro returned fire with this zinger. This one is going to leave a mark.
