Adam McKay, the screenwriter and director who recently won an Oscar for "The Big Short" — a movie about the Great Recession, which was triggered by the collapse of the housing market and the credit bubble because of the big bank's illegal activities — thanked Paramount Pictures for taking a risk on the movie.
And just like Senator Bernie Sanders, he warned people about voting for politicians like Hillary Clinton — candidates who take money from Wall Street and "weirdo billionaires".
But so far, too many Americans have not heeded that warning. So far, this is how they voted:
- Hillary Clinton barely squeaked by with a win in Iowa with 0.4% of the votes (with Hillary winning 6 out of 6 coin tosses to break 6 ties.)
- Bernie Sanders won by a landslide in New Hampshire (but in a State with a 93% White population.)
- Hillary Clinton had a narrow win in Nevada with just 5.5% more votes than Bernie (but that was because Senator Harry Reid had rigged the election to favor Hillary.)
- Hillary Clinton won by a landslide in South Carolina (with Blacks accounting for 61 percent of South Carolina's Democratic primary voters.)
Bernie Sanders said he was dedicated to taking the fight for the Democratic nomination all they way to the convention in July this summer (and his supporters are 100% behind him). Today is "Super Tuesday" — and at stake will be Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.
Yesterday Bernie Sanders said: "We started this campaign at 3 percent in the polls — 60 or 70 points behind Hillary Clinton. We have rallied millions of people who want to see a government that represents all of us and not just the billionaire class. At the end of tomorrow, I think 15 states will have spoken. Last I heard, we have a lot more than 15 states in the United States of America. And I think it is more than appropriate to give all of those states and the people in those states a chance to vote for the candidate of their choice.”
Will those voting in the Democratic primary today vote for a Wall Street candidate who is backed by billionaires — or an honest candidate of The People? I guess we'll soon see.
Just a reminder: Bernie Sanders doesn't take money from the big banks and billionaires.
