A polite guy like Bernie Sanders won’t tell America’s ultra rich to fuck off, but he won’t tell you not to tell them to fuck off, either.

Advocating an alternative to rampant inequality at a campaign rally on Monday, Sanders said, “That choice is to tell the billionaire class,” when a supporter finished, “Fuck off!”

“Well, that is one way to phrase it,” acknowledged Sanders. “I myself am constrained. I can’t quite phrase it like that, but that’s not bad.”

And sure, “fuck off” might not be the nicest thing to tell a billionaire class, but honestly there are far dumber things you could say.
