Why Dems love Bernie

Why do Democrats love Bernie Sanders? OK, it's not just because he's "cute" (as some younger voters are calling him). In point of fact, could someone tell me when 74-year-old bald Jewish men became America's symbol of "cute"? Larry David pulls it off, but I'm not so sure about Bernie Sanders.

Donald Trump, when asked, "Do you believe in punishment for abortion?" said, "There has to be some form of punishment." "For the woman?" asked MSNBC's Chris Matthews. "Yeah," said Trump.

He'd "never seen the number of people sleeping on the street," he told the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that he saw as he walked a few blocks from his Market Street hotel. He saw open drug dealing. "There's nobody hiding here."
