    This very blatant lie could have devastating effects on Sanders' campaign as the accusation is already trending on Facebook and is being reported by major outlets. This was not directly propagated or substantiated by Hillary Clinton and I'm sure her campaign had nothing to do with it.

    Aaaaaand then proven false by Snopes, complete with video and eyewitness testimony:

    There's dishonesty in politics? I'm shocked. Do the people know about this? Someone better alert the media.

    Honestly who cares. Bernie's younger voters are notorious dickbags as well, and I'm pulling for the guy against Hillary.

    It doesn't surprise me one bit that after bernie beat hillary with Latinos in Nevada that the clinton campaign is worried.

    3 states in, and bernie only has 1 more voting block to win over in the black community.

    I have yet to hear a reason why Bernie won't be able to do this, as he has in every other demographic now.

    So the Bernie supporters only obviously objected to her translating and then cheered when she was told by the organizer "English Only" as opposed to chanting "English Only" themselves? Same basic premise - they didn't want her to translate and then were happy when she was told she couldn't. Also who was the other fella in black who was on stage just before the guy with the mic said "We're only going to do this in english only"? Was he possibly a Sanders official who was objecting to the use of a translator or was spelling out the caucus rules of "english only" that Ms. Huerta would have been privy to but the mic and the camera didn't pick up?
