Maybe THEY are tone deaf, or are they faking a foul. What’s with the victim-talk BS. Most of us who support Bernie don’t like the tone of the Republican candidates or the Republican party or the Supreme Court or the Speaker of the House or Majority Leader of the Senate or the climate science deniers.
If Bernie is being characterized as having a tone problem, we have to wonder what Hillary’s actions will be if she becomes the nominee. This tone talk echoes Trump’s so-called concerns that he be “treated fairly.” So if Hillary’s spokespersons don’t like Bernie’s tone, I suggest that they adjust their own message. I don’t like their tone of suggesting that Bernie is a single issue candidate, or that his plans are impractical.
This tactic on the Hillary campaign’s part only makes her look like a whiner. It also may be a prelude to some hard ball on their part, for which they have to create a rationale for—even if imagined or fabricated. Instead, they should shut up and keep rowing (and debate Bernie in New York).
