What Bernie Sanders did in California recently would be comedy gold for the Republican party if Bernie had become the democrat nominee. First Bernie Sanders actually won a primary in Oklahoma, which sets up the rest of the joke.
Oklahoma then faced Golden State in the NBA western finals and Bernie showed up in Golden State for the seventh and deciding game. When Golden State won game seven over Oklahoma, Bernie celebrated with Golden State by first attending the game and then celebrating afterwards while chortling that everyone loves a comeback, as Golden State had come from 3 games to 1 down, to win the series in seven games. I doubt that went over big in Oklahoma. Sanders only won 12 primaries to begin with, so to rub it in the faces of Oklahoma fans that they lost to Golden State after being ahead 3 games to 1, not a smart move at all.
Which now brings us to the finals. In an historic sports twist, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the first team to ever win an NBA championship when down 3-1 in the finals. So, was Bernie Sanders suddenly rooting against Golden State and now rooting for Cleveland when the Cavs were down 3 games to 1? Bernie probably kept his mouth shut, which probably would have deeply offended Cavaliers fans if Bernie had still been relevant because the Cavs come from behind 3 games to 1 deficit to win an NBA championship had never been done before, and, the Cavs were the underdog whereas Golden State had been the favorite against Oklahoma and simply fell behind 3 games to 1 before winning that series. If anything, Golden State was the overdog that came from behind, so Bernie got that wrong as well.
Bernie managed to offend the state of Oklahoma, then by not rooting for the Cavs when they were down 3 games to 1, has also offended the state of Ohio, where the Republican party is holding their convention this year. And frankly, Golden State probably looks at Bernie as a jinx since they were heavily favored to win the championship this year and didn't.
Nice job Bernie, you managed to offend millions of sports fans in both Oklahoma and Ohio, and Golden State fans probably think you jinxed them as well. Not bad for a months work.
