Bernie Sanders took to Twitter to rail against America for being a nation that “worships wealth,” but Twitter quickly snapped back and proved he’s a huge hypocrite.
From The Blaze
“We are living in a nation which worships wealth rather than caring for the poor. I don’t think that is the nation we should be living in,” Sanders tweeted.

But according to Twitter users, the comments come off as lacking self-awareness, given that Sanders is the owner of three homes, most recently purchasing a $600,000 lakefront property in Vermont last year.
@BernieSanders which of you 3 homes did you tweet that from?

@BernieSanders ok Mr. 13.5% tax rate. Maybe you should pay your fair share, possibly sell 1 of your 3 homes and give money to charity?
