We need a President @BernieSanders because no one should live in poverty in the richest country in the world. Underdogs deserve to win, too.

I’m ashamed. I’m ashamed that I was one of those stupid people who totally rode the CJ Pearson train. (I mean, I wasn’t an avid “supporter,” but I wrote about him before and gave him publicity.)
You have to understand. My days are largely consumed by stories of millennials complaining about microaggressions and demanding trigger warnings, so I found Pearson refreshing. Here was a young man who was seemingly well-versed in the principles of conservatism– a rarity for sure.
But as he rose to fame, it started going to his head. At least, that’s how it looks.
