Bernie Sanders brought the Standing Rock protest to the White House, and did a speech right outside. I guess saying she should have gone there is a little too critical. But she remained absolutely silent. That just stood out to me because she claimed those minuscule Native American roots and couldn’t even stand up for that community when it mattered most.

The Consumer Protection Bureau is fantastic and probably one of her greatest accomplishments :) I will still absolutely vote for her if need be, she just isn’t my first choice! Thank you for reading the article and sharing your thoughts!
