Bernie and the Lewinsky Card

From 4-25-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F

Oh no, they didn’t.

Bernie Sanders had one of his celebrity speakers on the trail with him last weekend. Bernie doesn’t really get the good celebrities. Hillary gets people like George Clooney. Bernie gets Rosario Dawson. Rosario’s feeling the Bern.

At a rally in Wilmington, Rosario got up to introduce Bernie. She accused Hillary of bullying the Sanders campaign.

“We are literally under attack for not just supporting the other candidate, Dawson said. “Now, I’m with Monica Lewinsky with this,” she continued, invoking the infamous White House intern. “Bullying is bad. She has actually dedicated her life now to talking about that. And now, as a campaign strategy, we are being bullied, and, somehow that is O.K. and not being talked about with the richness that it needs.” Lewinsky has recently become an activist speaking out against cyber-bullying.


For Bernie supporters to start playing the Monica Lewinsky card, you know there is some real heat between them and the Hillary camp. The media downplays the friction, but it’s there. Just like there are #NeverTrump Republicans, some Bernie people are #NeverHillary. If they feel Bernie gets screwed out of the nomination, they will either stay home or vote Republican so that Hillary doesn’t win, because she did Bernie dirty.

This scares the hell out of Hillary and the Democratic establishment, because all it takes is 5% of Democrats to take up a #NeverHillary movement and it’s over. That’s why it’s so messed up what the GOP establishment is doing to Donald Trump, because he is their best shot at taking down Hillary. Everything is falling in place and the establishment is just screwing it up.

This didn’t happen in 2008. Hillary and Obama both ran tough primary campaigns against each other, but for the most part Hillary’s voters went with Obama once he got the nomination. This isn’t happening in 2016. You have to go back a long way to find a primary election battle this contentious on the Democrat side. The Monica Lewinsky card by a Bernie supporter? That’s big. When Republicans pull that out, Democrats are beyond appalled.


When Rosario Dawson did this, the media collectively threw up in their mouths. “W-w-what did she say?” You know Hillary was on the phone with Clooney and the rest of her Hollywood pals. “Make sure that bitch never works in movies again!”


“Never ever!”

I’m sure the Clinton machine has put the brakes on anything Monica’s tried to do in Hollywood. Sure, she pops up every once in a while, but we live in the age of Kim Kardashian, a woman who became rich and famous for having sex on video with Ray J, a rapper who was more famous than she was at the time. You’re gonna tell me some savvy agent couldn’t have hooked up a reality show deal for the woman who sucked off a sitting president?

Rosario Dawson better watch her ass. Democrats and the Clintons have put out the kill order. Once you invoke Lewinsky, there’s no turning back.

RIP Rosario Dawson’s career
