So this statement is less a Darwin Award moment and more of a loud and proud declaration about how little of a fuck he cares about anyone but himself. He’s showing how willing he is to kill his countrymen as long as he has some plausible deniability.
Socialism lost this election BTW. Bernie is a socialist in name only also but regardless he lost. I think personally his philosophy has changed over the decades and in practice he advocates for social democracy rather than socialism. Warren for example is not a socialist she is a capitalist and social democrat.
