Bernie’s Firesides

Firesides, Virtual Rallies, Town Halls, Virtual Roundtables, and Livestreams are terms used to for Bernie’s Digital Communications since the start of the Coronavirus lockdown prevented in-person events. We began collecting these under the term Firesides so we’ll keep it that way and include some of the earlier in-person Town Halls Bernie did to inform people about his platform.

Newer at the top.

Bernie Sanders First Virtual Rally March 2020

Bernie Sanders held a virtual rally on Monday night, March 16th y’all. List of appearances below. Neil Young introduced Bernie. Bernie affirmed his support for the arts and artists in his presidency. FDR’s New Deal produced works of art - murals, novels, sculpture - and this is something to look forward to from a Sanders Administration. Also there will be more outreach to older voters.

I wish we could vote for president now and have this primary bs – the debates, lyin’ Biden, dishonest MSM – were over with. However, due to coronavirus, Ohio has postponed its primary; Florida, Arizona, and Illinois are expected to have voting on Tuesday March 17th; Louisiana has rescheduled its primary from April 4th to June 20th. Expect more rescheduling.

Bernie Sanders Pre-Debate March 2020

Bernie Sanders' campaign streamed a Pre-Debate show in the hour before the 11th DNC Debate. The audio in the streamed video was not very good much of the time, but we remedied that in this audio file. Enjoy.

Bernie's Fireside Chat

Bernie did an inaugural "Fireside Chat" from his home in front of a woodburning stove - which he had to explain to his campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, who had apparently never experienced a woodburning stove before. They discussed how Coronavirus changes the campaign.

From this time forward we called all Bernie's digital communications, Firesides.
