One character was conservative political pundit Billy Wayne Ruddick, who sat down with former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders to discuss health care and wealth distribution.
Sanders supports universal health care, but Ruddick claimed, “I was a healthy man, and Obamacare came in. I was forced to see a doctor. And suddenly, I had three diseases. Suddenly, I had, uh, diabetes one and two, I had obese legs, and I had chalky deposits.”
Ruddick didn’t understand why Sanders was making such a big deal about the 99% having less than the top 1%. Ruddick suggested, “If you believe in equality, why not have 100% of the people in the 1%?”
Using a Sean Hannity type of algorithm, (Loud + Lies) – Facts x Anger / MAGA = Fake Statistics, Ruddick explained how the 99% and the upper 1% are, in fact, the same.
Despite being an amiable guy, Bernie Sanders soon found his patience waning for this person who he thought was a legitimate journalist. Sanders ultimately ended the interview, saying “Billy, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I really don’t.”
