A Metaphor for Socialism! Sen. Bernie Sanders! Technical Glitches Destroy Sanders Response to President Trump State of the Union

Self-identified "national socialist" Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) couldn't let Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) speak for him in the Democratic response to Donald Trump's first State of the Union address. But, in a perfect metaphor for his economic system, Sanders' own response experienced "technical difficulties."

For almost a full three minutes, Sanders' response was down, and the screen read, "We will be back momentarily!"

"Well, as they say, technology is great when it works, so if you're still with us, we appreciate it very much," the socialist senator said when the video started again.

So long as Sanders' team doesn't fix the video, you might be able to catch the lag here. The glitch starts at 6:09 in the video, and goes on until 8:50.
