The political toxicity of America in 2019 is growing ever more obvious and egregious this week, as 2020 candidates prepare for the final push toward their party’s nomination.
For the democrats, there’s still a whole lot of meat left on the bone. The current field of potential nominees stands at twenty-two; a number that has been largely lambasted by Americans for its unwieldy size and the candidates’ penchant for attacking one another in order to stand out.
Voters are growing ever-more fatigued, creating yet another layer of political stress for the world to wade through.
This weekend in Iowa, it seems as though some on the campaign trail are reaching their boiling point.
A campaign staffer for Bernie Sanders was screamed at by a local photojournalist who was repeatedly shoved following the Vermont senator’s remarks at the Iowa State Fair.
The confrontation erupted after members of the campaign relentlessly pushed the local journalists to make room for Sanders as he made his way to various attractions at the fair on Sunday.
The press pool erupted in chaos as Sanders left the campaign event, which was hosted by the Des Moines Register.
“Do not put your hands on me. You keep pushing me,” the female photographer yelled at the staffer.
This was merely one of several such incidents, with the bullying tactics being reported by journalists with several different outlets.
Sanders’s stampeding through the fairgrounds, with a trail of bruised reporters in his figurative wake, was in order for the longtime Vermont Senator to procure a corn dog from a local vendor.
