BURLINGTON, Vt. — It’s 1988 in the Soviet Union, the mood is festive, and Bernie Sanders is sitting at a table shirtless in his briefs with his wife, Jane, handing out gifts to the mayor of a midsize city they’ve befriended.
“If you’re wondering what’s wrong with capitalism, it’s made in Hong Kong,” he jokes. “Sorry about that.”
Despite serious and concerted efforts to prop up the sputtering campaign of the now borderline senile Joe Biden, socialist Bernie Sanders is on the brink of surpassing the former V.P. for the inside track on the nomination.
The video of the much younger Bernie drunkenly partying in the heart of what former President Ronald Reagan famously referred to as the “evil empire” is hardly the ideal wedding footage to find its way into the media.
