Hillary gave Bernie yet another fresh opportunity to paint himself as the angry outsider, yet again fighting a corrupt and rigged primary process, and yet again contending with an establishment that wants nothing more than to see his campaign die a quick and silent death. Sound familiar?

Yet again Bernie pulled back with a timid statement that focused back on Trump. How must this be playing out with his loudest and most eager defenders, as their great anti-establishment fighter withers in the face of a hostile DNC, current contenders and former opponents?

Hillary saw Bernie as a joke. Elizabeth Warren, backed by a sympathetic mass media complex, sees him as an obstacle. Right about now, Donald Trump must be looking at him like a meal.

Bernie claims he is the fighter in the race. But at every opportunity to show his base he is just that, he throws in the towel.
