‘Utter moron’ Bernie Sanders touts China’s maternity leave; James Woods slaps back with dose of reality

He called him “an utter moron.”

Actor James Woods called out self-described Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders for his praise of China’s maternity policy, focusing on one aspect of it — ignoring its most draconian facet.

Sanders tweeted:

Woods couldn’t let this one fly, so he shot back:

Soon everyone joined in, and social media erupted.

And even the point Sanders was making — paid maternity leave — was shot down.

And it was all summed up nicely with this comment.

Bernie Sanders: Always good for comedic relief.
