"I don't think I'm going to learn much."

Perhaps the most honest thing he's said during his entire time in office (or hell, his life in general).

But showing up to make sure an amount 800,000 times as much gets appropriated well is then not important enough?

We all know by now that this is just classic McBeal fare.

Do you not think he was aware that the senate democrats would block it with or without him?

The less 80 year olds we have swarming in the cesspool of covid Congress, the better. Trump should craft up an emergency executive Roger stating remote senate voting is appropriate during a national state of emergency.

Fucking terrible example they’re setting.

While their gym, dining room and pool are open the rest of us are trying to save society.

Total failure of leadership.

No, the gym was closed.

Rand Paul is just a asshole

And i said my opinion on Bernie. But also note the Bros have been hammering Biden for “disappearing”. Joe’s job right now is providing leadership that’s severely lacking. And staying healthy

Bernie should take whatever precautions he can regarding his job, but he should still perform his duties (assuming he really didn’t want to risk health by voting)

Looks like Trump is going to push for people going back to work.

why does anybody still give a single flying fuck about what "the Bros" are saying on twitter?? this is like borderline pathological with some of you here at this point.

god forbid he should be prepping for an online fundraising event instead of risking his life wading into a petri dish to cast a pointless vote against a bill that was going to fail anyways. joe biden's job is "staying healthy" but sanders is an egotistical asshole and "all talk. literally" for not congregating in a large group of old people against the advice of every sane medical expert out there. okay then

One would think that someone who yells and yells about billionaires and corporations would make it a point to show up to vote against McConnell and the GOP's bill yesterday.

i really think those of you railing against a 78 year old man for not literally risking his health/life to go and cast a pointless vote are being huge assholes.

any responsible person would never in a million years encourage their grandfather with a bad heart to go into that situation and it's really, really shitty to attack sanders for not ignoring medical advice and attending congress, almost guaranteeing he'll catch an illness that has a high risk of killing him, to cast what amounts to a symbolic vote.

Yes let's give Bernie a break. He's doing the responsible thing for himself and for his family, don't know how anyone can find fault with that. He has kids and grandkids and a wife. I haven't been staying in touch with what either Joe or Bernie are doing.

One would think that if this was the point he was trying to make by no showing that he would, ya know, make a point of it.

Nah, we're just being huge assholes.

so now he's at fault for not making a big dog and pony show out of not voting? lol he literally can't win with you guys. if he went and voted i'm sure people would be in here railing on him as irresponsible and reckless and "all about himself" for gathering in public with exposed people.

yes, those of you who are giving him shit for this absolutely are being huge assholes.

be mad at the senate's archaic rules that don't allow any remote voting in fucking 2020, don't be mad at the guy who chose not to risk his health just to make a point.

There really needs to be a way for remote voting for Congress. Not to be used willy-nilly so Richard Blumenthal can vote from Aruba or Ted Cruz can cast his votes from a Dallas gentleman's club every Friday, but for situations just like we are currently facing as well as any other emergencies/disasters.

This. It’s... awkward (at best) to point to this as a “see???” moment against Bernie.
