Bernie Sanders Buys $600K Lakefront Summer House in Vermont


Bernie Sanders, the socialist who challenged Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, is dropping fat cash on a hot new lakefront pad.

The income inequality expert reportedly bought a $600,000 “camp” on the Champlain Islands in Vermont last week, which he plans to use as a seasonal getaway locale.

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.

Still, that seems like a pretty nice view.
