‘I can yell as loud as you!’ Bully Bernie Sanders snaps at female Fox reporter gets IN HER FACE

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was spoiling for a fight when approached by a reporter about his 32-hour work week bill, but then that was predictable when the curmudgeon socialist asked the Fox Business reporter who she worked for.

Fox Business correspondent Hillary Vaughn caught up with Sanders in the halls of Capitol Hill on Thursday, and he was on the attack before she could ask her first question.

“It seems like Democrats want businesses to be taxed more, pay their workers …” the reporter began.

“Really? Is that what you think?” Sanders interjected, aggressively waving his hand inches away from Vaughn’s face.

“They pay their workers …” Vaughn replied, trying to get to her actual question.

“Excuse me! Excuse me!” Sanders interrupted again, prompting Vaughn to protest, “I didn’t get to ask a question.”

Sanders got on his Marxist soapbox and began preaching, “OK, thank you. You wanna — hold it, OK? We held a hearing on a 32-hour work week because what we have seen is that over the last 50 years, despite a huge increase in worker productivity, almost all of the wealth has gone to the top 1 percent while 60 percent of the people living paycheck to paycheck. Many of our people are exhausted. We work the longest hours of any people in the industrialized world. I think it is time for a shortened work week.”

“Let me ask you a question about that. Seems like Democrats want businesses to be taxed more, pay their workers more, lower prices, and now pay people not to work,” Vaughn said, as Sanders continued to interrupt aggressively. “How are businesses going to survive that? That’s the question. How can businesses survive that? How can businesses survive all of those proposals?”

“When Mr. Bezos pays an effective tax rate lower than the average worker, I think we have a real problem in our tax system. I think that billionaires have got to start paying their fair share of taxes. Thank you,” Sanders said.

At one point during the exchange, Sanders warned Vaughn while waving his hand in her face, “I can yell as loud as you.”

For what it’s worth, she wasn’t yelling so much as trying to be heard over his hallway filibuster.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
