Although he’s seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders delivered a fiery rebuke Friday of both parties as he sought to cast himself as a political outsider.
“It is too late for establishment politics, establishment economics. We need a political revolution,” Sanders said with towering cranes at the Port of Long Beach and Port of Los Angeles looming in the background. “We are tired of politicians in both parties hustling money from the wealthy and the powerful.”
Sanders, who has campaigned across Southern California in recent days, steered away from jabbing Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. He made only passing reference to the backing she gets from super PACs, as he’s done in most speeches. He did, however, point to casino magnate Sheldon Adelson’s support of Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, to castigate big money in politics.
