Sen. Bernie Sanders is always whining about the wealthy, but it seems like most of the time he conveniently forgets he is wealthy as well.
On Thursday, Sanders attacked the wealthy, saying they don’t pay their taxes.
Let’s be clear: America is not broke. The very wealthy, and huge profitable corporations just aren’t paying their taxes.

Sanders likes to rail on the rich, but if the government seized 100 percent of the wealthiest Americans income, it would only amount to around $616 billion.
A Twitter user later shut Sanders up by reminding him that normal Americans don’t own three homes like Sanders does.
America is so wealthy some folks have three houses https://t.co/ewNFUVf2gj

And Sanders loves to lie. He recently reported his net worth as $500,000, but somehow managed to afford this $600,000 vacation home.
In essence, Sanders has become one of the “millionaires” he hates and is always attacking.
Other Twitter users jumped in on the trend and praised Payne for his hilarious tweet.
This tweet wins the Internet. https://t.co/BC5TBJCvdP

So the next time you hear Sanders crying about income inequality, remind him that he is a massive hypocrite and that he is one of those wealthy Americans himself.
