Bernie Sanders, the socialist who challenged Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, is dropping fat cash on a hot new lakefront pad.
Bernie’s new crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of beautiful shorefront access on the banks of Lake Champlain. Sanders and his wife plan to keep their home in nearby Burlington, as well as their fashionable rowhouse on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Bernie should fit right in as a member of the Champlain Islands community. There is a general store down the road from his new digs, for example, that serves a turkey sandwich called “Feel the Bun” in his honor. It features a “HUGE” roll, because Bernie says the word “huge” a lot. Also, provolone cheese.
“It’s not fair that the Billionaire Class controls 99 percent of the bread,” reads the sandwich’s description on the menu. “Here’s a sandwich for the rest of us … to keep us nourished until everything cool is free!”

Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, said the whole family is excited about the new purchase. O’Meara Sanders is the former president of Burlington College, which was forced to close due to the “crushing weight of the debt” incurred under her leadership.
Bernie Sanders is already being mocked on Twitter for buying a fancy home despite spending his whole career railing against rich people and their fancy things.
Just because we’re socialists doesn’t mean we can’t amass capital, amirite? https://t.co/uOln1xkF37
