Fox News’ Brit Hume: Bernie Spreading ‘Conspiracy Theory’ That Billionaires Are ‘Running the Country’
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume accused Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Monday of peddling a “conspiracy theory” that billionaires are “running the country” and have an “exorbitant amount of power.”
Hume, a former longtime Fox News anchor, said that the democratic socialist is constantly talking about how the nation’s “billionaire class” is “basically running the country, that they have this exorbitant amount of power, and so on.”
“I don’t think it’s — I think that’s, you know, questionable whether that’s really true,” Hume continued. “And I think — but considering, you know, the part of the party’s electorate to which he’s appealing, I suppose it’s not bad politics. But I think in the long run, people won’t accept that.”
