Bernie Sanders Slams Hillary for Clooney Fundraiser

The Bernie Sanders campaign has found a new wedge issue in the head to head contest with Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination: the massive amounts of cash that Hillary receives from Hollywood’s biggest bundlers and donors.

After the Sanders campaign derided the Vermont senator’s opponent for fundraisers that the Clinton campaign has scheduled, which feature George Clooney, Sanders himself appeared on CNN and said that bundlers such as Clooney represent “the problem with American politics.”

Sanders gave a nod to Clooney’s acting skills but then suggested that the use of Clooney for extravagant Hollywood fundraising activity is unseemly.

PsyOps have historically been utilized by the military for strategic reasons to create degradation of a potential adversary. United States Air Force documents indicate that these psychological operations have the potential to disrupt, confuse, and protract an adversary’s decision-making process, thus undermining command and control.

The end result that is ultimately sought with successful implementation of the strategy is to lower the morale of adversaries and reduce their will to fight.

Hollywood, the GOP Establishment, and a Contested Convention

Hollywood celebrities are accustomed to repeating the same tired talking points as liberal Democrats and mainstream media elites when it comes to anti-Second Amendment rhetoric, radical environmental ideology, and policies of appeasement.

Curiously, however, a coalition has recently sprung up that consists of a bramblebush of anti-conservative opponents.

George Clooney, Susan Sarandon, Louie CK, and the “Saturday Night Live” writing staff are currently joining forces with the GOP establishment, the common thread attaching them to one another being an inordinate dislike for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
