Bernie honeymooned in the Soviet Union during the Cold War and thinks people lining up in bread lines “is a good thing” about socialism. He literally wants the US to become the USSR. But Trump is the Russian agent. ???‍♂️

The terrorist is from a country called Uzbekistan, part of Russia & the Soviet Union for the last 200 years before independence in 1991.
