A former employee of Bernie Sanders was using the Biden campaign’s virtual phone banking tool to call voters and spreading the lie that Biden has Dementia.
The Biden campaign posted about the former employee:
A former Bernie employee is using our virtual phonebank tool to call voters and tell them Joe Biden has dementia — and is live-streaming it. We’ll cut him off in a little bit but I figured it’s worth everyone seeing this stuff in action. https://t.co/wBFeCR6wAo pic.twitter.com/QI4D8tOY1E

The guy was live-streaming his calls to voters:
Joe Biden does not have Dementia. What Sanders and Trump supporters are calling Dementia, is, in reality, a stutter. Joe Biden has a stutter that he has worked his entire life to overcome.
It is very Trump-like of Bernie Sanders supporters to falsely claim that Joe Biden has Dementia when their candidate has refused to release his full medical records after he had a very real heart attack.
The actions of some Sanders supporters are why his campaign has been isolated from the Democratic Party and is withering on the vine.
Sanders’s supporters are acting like the Trump campaign and Trump supporters. These activities have no place in a Democratic primary and should have been immediately condemned by Bernie Sanders.
