Bernie Sanders Tests Negative For President

Comrade Bernie is out.  Via a livestream this morning the Marxist codger told his cult, “I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win, and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour.”

After the shellacking Sanders took on Super Tuesday and in Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri and North Dakota the following week he told his supporters, “While our campaign has won the battle of ideas, we are losing the battle over electability to Joe Biden.”

The Bronx Bolshevik, Omar the anti-Semite and Hamas Hag Rashida Tlaib were left holding the bag.
Sanders' decision to exit the race calmed fears of a government takeover of the private health insurance market strengthening the stock market today and fueled a rally in managed care firms like United Health (UNH) which would have been hurt by a single-payer health care system.  Hospital stocks also took flight after sharp sell-offs.  HCA Healthcare (HCA) jumped 11% while Universal Health Services (UHS) soared 10%.

As of 4:15 PM today the Dow finished up at 23433.67 gaining 779.71 points, a 3.44% increase.
