Bernie Sanders appears on The Late Show‘s first live audience live show in two years to discuss President Biden’s State of the Union address.
The Late Show Wins Out Over President Biden
“I much prefer to be here,” said Sanders of being on The Late Show rather than at Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. But sadly that was as jovial as he got. “This is the most difficult moment in our lifetimes.”
Over the increasingly dour situations the world is facing – war, pestilence and wealth disparity – Sanders’ calls for the American people to rally and keep moving forward. It’s important, he reiterates; “we’re losing the struggle for a planet to leave to our kids that will be healthy and habitable.”
Watch Senator Sanders empower the viewers of The Late Show:
Sanders also shouts out to the Russian protestors, who are risking their freedom and possibly lives to have their say against the Russian aggression towards Ukraine. A man of protest and civil rights, Bernie Sanders has always supported true movements against real tyranny and threats to a safe and healthy life for all levels of society.
“The Russian people are not our enemies, it is their Autocracy and the crooks and the evil people that run that country.”
Sanders’ State of the Union
When prompted for what he would tell the country were he to give a State of the Union speech, Sanders exploded with energy and passion. For him, anyway.
His target was United States government officials themselves. Specifically, the ones who prefer to line their pockets over serving their constituents.
Political corruption has become more forefront in voters’ minds, and the veil is dropping around the ones abusing their power. Sanders has always been leading the charge against them, and by the sounds of it, will continue to do so until he no longer can.
