‘Antichrist’ Bernie Sanders Lists Hit Parade of Haters

July 10, 2019, 7:19 PM UTC

Bernie Sanders published a list of “anti-endorsements” on his presidential campaign website with quotes from JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and other luminaries of Wall Street and beyond.

“Bernie Sanders, in my opinion, doesn’t have a clue,” Leon Cooperman, a former partner at Goldman Sachs, is quoted as saying.

“It has the potential to be a dangerous moment,” Blankfein said of Sanders’s campaign.

“In 2016 I saw Bernie Sanders and the kids around him. I thought: ‘This is the antichrist!”’ said Home Depot Co-Founder Kenneth Langone.

Sanders, a Vermont senator and avowed democratic socialist, is running a campaign focused on taking on the billionaires and Wall Street elite. The web page approvingly quotes Franklin Roosevelt — “I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made” — and Frederick Douglass.

In a statement Sanders said of the business leaders quoted: “we welcome their hatred.”

Other quotes listed include:

“The senator’s uninformed views are, in a word, contemptible” — Lowell McAdam, former Verizon CEO.

“If Bernie Sanders became president, I think stock prices should be 30% to 40% lower than they are now” — Stanley Druckenmiller, hedge fund manager.
