Watch: Hilariously Accurate Comedy Skit Highlights Bernie Sanders’ Stance On Felon Voters
Leave it to The Blaze to create a hilariously accurate skit about the crazy things Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders purposes. Recently, Sanders said that convicted felons should have the right to vote. No joke, according to Sanders just because you make one mistake and murder someone doesn’t mean you should lose the right to vote for a Democrat…
In the sketch, called “Icepick and the Murderers for Bernie,” Martha Hyde-White, a parody of Barbara Walters, interviews inmate Jerry John Davis, nicknamed “Icepick,” who is “serving a 180 year sentence for setting his local Equinox gym on fire after exiting the shower and finding no fresh towels.”
With a fire-scorched voice, Icepick sits across from Hyde-White and tells her that he is a staunch supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president.
“With help from the Sanders camp, Icepick has been allowed to spend his one hour a day out of solitary confinement canvassing for Bernie,” Hyde-White states while we see Icepick holding a “Murderers for Bernie” sign and chanting, among other things, “My body. My choice.” He is accompanied by a security guard, who chants with him.
In a particularly funny man-on-the-street interview, a local “woman” says that she supports Icepick’s efforts for Bernie Sanders because she hates President Trump’s “draconian health care system.”
At the end of the segment, Hyde-White notes that since the interview, Icepick has had more years added to his prison sentence because he murdered her cameraman.
Sanders offered his stance at a CNN town hall when asked whether he thought felons should be allowed to vote while they’re incarcerated, not just after their release.
He was pressed on whether it was appropriate to enfranchise sex offenders or someone convicted of a heinous crime like Tsarnaev, who with his brother carried out the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that left three dead and injured hundreds more.
“Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope,” Sanders said in response to a question about restoring felons’ voting rights.
Really, Sanders was asking for it. He even mentioned that he knew he would have to take criticism from both parties for his extreme view on voters’ rights. At least he got something right, I guess…
