Guess how much socialist Bernie Sanders is making on his new book

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist and a 2016 presidential contender, scored a $795,000 advance for his upcoming book, “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.” On Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Mike Broomhead examined the irony of a socialist politician who is far wealthier than most of his supporters.

A Vermont newspaper has reported that Sanders’ income passed $1 million in 2016, which includes his book deal advance, his Senate salary and other income. Sanders’ $795,000 advance surpasses a recent book deal for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who received a $200,000 advance for “This Fight is Our Fight.” Former President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama recently signed book deals that reportedly topped $65 million.

Sanders gave eventual presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the Democratic primary last year, drawing millennials and other disenfranchised voters with his socialist platform advocating supposed income equality and higher taxes to cover health care and education.

Mike pointed out the irony that Sanders is richer than most of his supporters. Despite his rhetoric disparaging wealth in America, Sanders owns three homes and is likely to retire as a millionaire.
