Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders is a “professional loser” whose mounting losses in the Democrat primary races are the result of him being the “lamest revolutionary ever,” according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Speaking late Tuesday about Sanders’ downward spiral, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host pointed out how the senator’s passive persona never seems to match his revolutionary rhetoric.

He’s weak. Yeah, Sanders is a socialist bomb-thrower who praises Fidel Castro, but it’s mostly talk in the end. Underneath it all, Bernie Sanders may be the lamest revolutionary ever,” Tucker declared.

To drive home the point, the host talked about how the Vermont senator bent the knee to the Democrat National Committee during the 2016 race four years ago.

“Twice in a row, Sanders has tried to win the Democratic presidential nomination. Twice in a row, party insiders have worked to rig the game against him,” he said.

“In 2016, leaked emails showed Democratic officials openly rooting for Hillary Clinton, his opponent. The party scheduled the primary debates that year in a way they thought would hurt Sanders. The DNC even entered into a joint fund-raising agreement with his opponent, the Clinton campaign. Remarkable. The Democratic Party did far more to subvert the Democratic process four years ago then Vladimir Putin even attempted to do. Sanders was never going to win.”

Yet after losing, Sanders the purported revolutionary quickly fell in line like the “obedient little party hack he is” by campaigning for the DNC’s preferred candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“But Hillary was not even grateful for it,” Carlson noted. “She bashes Sanders extensively in a new documentary, and not just his policies. She goes after him personally, claiming nobody likes him. So what did Sanders learn from all of this? Not a single thing.”

With the Democrat Party now coalescing around Joe Biden four years later, the Vermont senator has returned to his familiar behavior.

“For Sanders, this week was the time to tell the truth about what is happening, what we’re all watching,” the FNC host argued. “The Democratic nominating system is rotten and corrupt. Biden himself clearly is not capable of governing this country. He’s not even capable of holding a press conference. The whole process is shocking. It’s a fraud, not to mention incredibly cynical and reckless.”

“The establishment doesn’t care who the president is. They just want to make certain it’s someone they can control who won’t raise their taxes. Sanders could have settled that and should have because it’s true. Instead, he defended Joe Biden.”

Yes, he did.

Watch:

“Okay, so according to Bernie Sanders, we’re not allowed to talk about the one thing all of us can see clearly every day: The Democratic front runner is failing. He’s not capable of taking the job he’s running for. His staff is desperate to keep him from interacting with the public for more than two minutes,” Carlson continued in exasperation.

“By the way, that’s not a partisan talking point. It’s true. It’s an observation that everyone who pays attention has. And it’s sad, really sad. More poignant than damning, sincerely. But Sanders won’t say any of this. ‘Shut up,’ he says. Any mention of Biden’s rapidly declining communications skills is a ‘personal attack.'”

He added, “It’s pretty obvious that Sanders doesn’t want to win. He’s a man who thinks it’s more noble to fail than to succeed. You’re watching a professional loser.”

One with very little sincere interest in winning, it would seem.

“Sanders is all but admitting that now,” the host continued. “He’s already promised to back Biden if Biden wins the nomination.  He’s even pledged to not contest the convention if Biden falls short of a delegate majority.”

Yes, he has.

Watch:

“It’s pathetic, actually. Real revolutionaries go to the wall for what they believe. Bernie Sanders won’t even go to the convention, because that’s who Bernie Sanders is and that’s who he always been,” Carlson noted.

As another example, he pointed to what happened in 2015 when two “Black Lives Matter” activists hijacked one of his campaign events.

“Back in 2015 at a rally in Seattle, two demonstrators took the mic from Sanders while he was trying to speak. Rather than take back his own podium, Sanders stood meekly aside like a scolded child, and then he called off the event altogether without even finishing his speech.”

Carlson concluded by pointing to what happened just two months ago.

“Less than two months ago, one of Sanders supporters did what he wouldn’t do,” he said. “She told the truth about Joe Biden. She called him corrupt, and she did it for a reason: For decades, Biden was a paid lackey of the credit card companies.”

“But Sanders wouldn’t play along. He apologized for what his surrogate said, and then he claimed Joe Biden was ethically pure. Sanders attacked his own surrogate for telling the truth. So what did Sanders get in return for doing that? More attacks, of course.”

Once a “professional loser,” always a “professional loser” …
