Bernie Sanders is playing the role of the absent minded professor this election cycle. Not to mention the destructive, crazy socialist. The Senator from Vermont channeled both of these qualities at a recent photo op.
He stood in front of a number of oil wells to condemn fracking. But much like Hillary, Bernie chose to lie about fracking with those wells working hard in the background.
Like Hillary, Bernie is not going to let facts get in the way of his favorite political agenda. He falsely claimed that fracking was destroying the water supply.
“We have got to end fracking. It is just not worth the risk to poison our aquifers, at a time when we are seeing the kind of damage we are from climate change and drought,” Sanders said. “We have to be very concerned in making sure we protect our water supply –and fracking moves us in the wrong direction.”
Except it’s not true – at all. A study by Elizabeth Botner sponsored by OhioLINK proves fracking has no impact on groundwater. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
Watch Bernie channel his inner Crooked Hillary in the video below:
Bernie tries to paint himself as an outsider, but the man has been an elected official for decades. And you can tell it in his lies and his disdain for the hard-working people that are employed in the oil and energy industry that make our great country RUN!
Share this to warn others about Bernie’s lies and hate of hard-working Americans!
