The stress might be getting to the Democratic party now that most special elections were won by Trump backed candidates all over the country today.

The Bernie Sanders backed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mr Ben Jealous for the state of Maryland got a relatively foreseeable question today, from an ordinarily left-leaning newspaper, The Washington Post, asked whether or not he identified with the term ‘socialism.’

In response, Mr Jealous stated: “You Fucking Kidding Me?”

Ms Erin Cox of the Washington Post had started by asking Mr Jealous, the former leader of the NAACP who opened for Q&A after a brief statement, whether he would like to respond to Republican Governor Larry Hogan’s campaign team labelling Mr Jealous, who was endorsed by Vermont’s Democratic Governor Mr Bernie Sanders, as a socialist.

Mr Jealous at first politely responded: “him calling me a far-left socialist, that’s what the Tea Party called President Obama, it’s what Barry Goldwater called Martin Luther King.”

“And when you see conservatives like Hogan name-calling, you realize that they’re scared.”

Ms Cox follow-up question: “Not to put too fine a point on it, do you identify with the term socialist?”

At this point, Mr Jealous snapped at her: “Are you f—ing kidding me? Is that a finer point?”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Because your patron, <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BernieSanders?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#BernieSanders</a>, is such a renowned capitalist? <a href="https://t.co/WDTgKZ9Ecu">https://t.co/WDTgKZ9Ecu</a></p>&mdash; James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) <a href="https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1027252815041912832?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

Maryland Governor Hogan’s team, having seen the clip, stated: "the governor believes in raising the level of political discourse in our state and in our country, and cursing at reporters asking questions is the exact opposite of that."

Mr Jealous, realizing the commotion his remarks would cause, sent out an apology moments ago.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I want to apologize to <a href="https://twitter.com/ErinatThePost?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@ErinatThePost</a> for my inappropriate language in response to her question earlier today. <br><br>As a former journalist, I know how important it is for a free society to respect reporters and answer their questions honestly.</p>&mdash; Ben Jealous for Governor (MD) (@BenJealous) <a href="https://twitter.com/BenJealous/status/1027253495521533952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

Nothing to see here or in the above two comments. One thing for sure though, anyone Bernie Sanders likes is a socialist. That's how far democrats have moved left of JFK.

"We want to push everyone we possibly can into Obamacare" (with GREAT EMPHASIS) - and they let him deny he's a socialist...... fools.
