In this clip, Pat Gray and Keith Malinak discuss Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' love for Sweden —the progressive left's favorite socialist country — and the smackdown Bernie received in a tweet from former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt.
The smack down
Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt tweeted out a harsh blow aimed at Sanders, reminding readers that Sanders visited communist Russia back in 1988. Sanders praised the Soviets for their social and economic "achievements." A few years later, the world watched as the entire system imploded in 1991.

"Bernie Sanders was lucky to be able to get to the Soviet Union in 1988 and praise all its stunning socialist achievements before the entire system and empire collapsed under the weight of its own spectacular failures," Bildt tweeted.

Embarrassing town hall
Monday, CNN hosted a town hall with Sanders who was pressed by an audience member about slavery reparations. Sanders cited the 10/20/30 legislation that aims to end "institutional racism, ending cancer, and ending income disparity" but failed to answer the young woman's question.
When Blitzer asked Sanders to clarify, he stumbled for a bit and answered by agreeing with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who supports government issued reparations for Native Americans. In 2016, Sanders called reparations "very divisive."
