Bernie Sanders Cancels Iowa Event Due to Impeachment Schedule

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) canceled a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday due to the schedule of the Senate impeachment trial.

Sanders announced that he is canceling his upcoming event at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls due to the impeachment trial, which kicks off Tuesday.

“Sen. Sanders will not be able to attend tomorrow’s rally due to the impeachment schedule in the U.S. Senate,” the campaign said in a statement.

“However, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) will host campaign events in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and Ames on Friday and Saturday,” it added:

“Probably one jet,” Sanders said.

“Multiple rides in a private jet,” Colbert added.

“Yes, yes,” Sanders confirmed:

Sanders, a champion of the Green New Deal, has yet to address the impact his excessive jet usage will have on the environment.
