Bernie Sanders laughs at idea Bezos urged Bloomberg to run: ‘That’s real class solidarity’

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., laughed so hard Saturday when he learned Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had urged Michael Bloomberg months ago to run for president that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., had to step in to speak, according to a report.

“Of course!” Ocasio-Cortez told the Des Moines Register. “They’ve got class solidarity. The billionaires are looking out for each other.”

She added that Bill Gates being seemingly more willing to vote for President Trump than a Democrat shows how adamant billionaires are about protecting their “excess.”

At that point Sanders interjected.

“Jeff Bezos, worth $150 billion, supporting Mike Bloomberg, who’s worth only $50 billion, that’s real class solidarity,” he told the Register. “I’m impressed by that grassroots movement.”

Sanders has been critical of Jeff Bezos in the past, over the treatment of his employees, and takes credit for getting Amazon to raise its minimum wage to $15 per hour last year.
