Bernie Sanders is going senile, which should be a surprise to no one considering the Vermont Senator is 76-years of age. At that age, people say things that just makes absolutely no sense. This explains his crazy progressive policies, promising Americans the Moon with free healthcare, free university, free this, free that.

It's also no surprise that he would turn the natural disaster in Puerto Rico into a racial issue directed at President Trump. Making every issue about race, after all, is what progressives do best.

On CNN's State of the Union, Sanders chastized Trump for what he perceived was an inadequate response to Hurrican Maria that devastated much of Puerto Rico. According to Sander's logic, there is only one reason for this: Racism, with a big capital "R."

In Sanders own words:

"Yeah, I think we have a right to be suspect that he is treating the people in Puerto Rico in a different way than he has treated the people of Texas or Florida."

As always, Sanders is off the mark on so many levels. First of all, the president has authorized immense aid to Puerto Rico and surrounding islands, sending more than 10,000 federal workers to aid in devastation relief efforts. FEMA has also constantly kept the public updated, releasing photos of American aid workers working tirelessly. Members of the U.S. Military and Red Cross are also active on the ground.

It's strange that Sanders would insinuate that Trump is holding back on relief efforts due to the racial makeup of Puerto Rico. The president, for the most part, has been praised for his response to the Houston and Florida disasters. Those areas have a diverse makeup of Latinos and blacks.

What do you make of Bernie Sander's statements? Do you think his remarks are just the ramblings of an old man, or is it the byproduct of regressive liberal ideology?
