Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was just one of countless Democrats joining students from the nation’s capital during Wednesday’s ‘National Walkout Day” rally against guns; hypocritically hiding behind armed guards to protect the politician from the crowds of young people.
Footage of Sanders’ entrance and address at the march appeared on social media within minutes; showing him emerging the building flanked by Capitol Hill Police armed to protect the socialist Senator.
