While the Bernie Sanders campaign announced that he will “assess” continuing his bid for the White House after getting thumped by Joe Biden in the latest round of primaries.
A good source inside the Bernie camp said Bernie has already told them “He’s Done”.
Which makes this earlier graphic from another story both pertinent and regrettable at the same time since I wish I saved it for this story.
Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement:
“The next primary contest is at least three weeks away,”
“Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with supporters to assess his campaign,”
“In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring we will take care of the working people and the most vulnerable.”
Bernie Sanders Says Sayonara
The 108-year-old self-described socialist with a bad ticker has yet to make a statement after he lost by almost 40 points to Biden in Florida, and double digits in Illinois and Arizona on Tuesday.
Biden now has an almost insurmountable delegate lead — 1,147 to 861.
We contacted a friend who I consider a very loyal Bernie Bro and he stated to me that Bernie is telling his loyal simpleminded socialist lunatics that “It’s Over.”
But as President Trump noted in his tweet this morning, the DNC really wants to keep the Bernie Bros on their side because they’ll need them in November.
The DNC will have gotten their fondest wish and defeated Bernie Sanders, far ahead of schedule. Now they are doing everything possible to be nice to him in order to keep his supporters. Bernie has given up, just like he did last time. He will be dropping out soon! MAGA/KAG

So they must be hoping for a graceful exit by Sanders with no accusations of rigging as what happened in 2016 and if Sanders announces soon that it’s over that may quell some of the Bernie Bros anger.
Speaking to my friend before Super Tuesday he noted that the DNC bribing other candidates to drop out so their supporters will rally around Biden wasn’t sitting too well with the Bernie Bro Bunch.
But today, he seemed less angry at the DNC, and more downtrodden that America couldn’t see the wisdom of Bernie’s Socialist utopia.
The big question is between now and November will the anti-Trump anger be enough to drive the Bernie Bros to the polls in support for Joe Biden, whom they truly despise.
Or will the Bernie Bros still hold a grudge against the Democrats for making their beloved Bernie a Two-Time Presidential nominee loser and stay home in November?
It will be interesting to talk to my friend as we get closer to election day, of course, Tusker Daily will let you
