Obama Staffer: Democrats Are All Socialists

Even liberal Democrats from the Obama administration can see through the current Democrat presidential nominees.

During a Thursday appearance on CBS This Morning, Former Barack Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett shot down the idea that the Democratic nominees outside of Bernie Sanders are "moderates," as their party tries to portray them.

Co-host Tony Dokoupil said, "We seem to have this split between candidates who are more on the progressive side, Bernie Sanders, and those that are on the moderate side, in the middle of the party. Is this split in the party, is it concerning for Democrats?"

But Jarrett quickly brushed that aside and came back with, "I think if you look at the ideology, the values, the core values of Democrats who are running, they all believe every American should have health care, it should be a right not a privilege. They all believe in a woman's right to choose."

She added, "So, if you look at the core values, there's barely any difference. The difference is between that field and President Trump."
