Bernie Sanders just can’t let go.
The losing Democratic presidential candidate is still railing against President Donald Trump, the system, voting … well, you name it.
Most recently, when he took to Twitter and attacked the United States for being a country that “worships wealth,” he got a smackdown of epic proportions.
“We are living in a nation which worships wealth rather than caring for the poor. I don’t think that is the nation we should be living in,” Sanders tweeted.

Sanders is not a poor man. He owns three homes. His most recent one is a $600,000 home on lakefront property.
Also, Sanders paid an effective tax rate of 13.5 percent in 2014 – a little more than half of the percentage Donald Trump paid in 2005. And this is from a man who constantly complains that rich Americans don’t pay their “fair share.”
So Twitter fired back at Sanders:
@BernieSanders which of you 3 homes did you tweet that from?

@BernieSanders ok Mr. 13.5% tax rate. Maybe you should pay your fair share, possibly sell 1 of your 3 homes and give money to charity?

@BernieSanders I don't think we should live in a country where you can say this while having 3 houses and pay a lower tax rate than I do.

@BernieSanders Says the man who owns 3 homes one which cost over $600,000. I'm guessing you have homeless people you're housing? Do as I say, not as I do?

Maybe Bernie will think twice before tweeting his nonsense again.
