Bernie Sander finds the sacrifices of American Soldiers in foreign wars rather boring, and was seen napping during a tearful ceremony.
Zoe Dunning, a gay rights activist, veteran, Hillary Clinton supporter, and high-ranking member of the San Francisco Democratic Party, posted the photograph to Facebook, with the following message:
Attending the Memorial Day Ceremony honoring the over 1 million Americans who have lost their lives serving our country, and watching Bernie Sanders fall asleep during it. There is nothing I can really add here. #imwithher
Responses on Facebook were less than enthusiastic. One man, Richard Stone, posted:
Zoe, thanx for your service. But I’m VFW and elected green (county council) and I still honor Bernie’s dedication to veterans rights. This is sheer artifice and a desperate attempt to disparage someone who has a stellar record of vets rights, nothing more to add here, #SMDFH
Another, Patrick Connors, was sarcastic, and scathing:
Aren’t old people the worst?? He clearly hates all veterans. Nothing political about that on Memorial Day, eh? That’s the San Francisco Democratic Party for you….never failing to miss an opportunity to act like a Republican!
Sanders has an excuse other than age: he has kept a punishing campaign schedule, criss-crossing the Golden State and holding several rallies and meetings per day in an effort to turn out his vote and upset Clinton on June 7.
