Bernie Sanders is earning his fair share of media attention as the current Democratic #2 in the presidential nomination race.
He’s also attracting his fair share of criticism. Conservative actor James Woods became the latest high profile person to criticize Sanders.
One of the talking points of Sanders’ campaign so far (besides raising taxes on a bunch of Americans to pay for more social programs) has been mandatory, paid maternity leave for all full time jobs.
Sanders sent out this tweet to highlight his stance on mandatory maternity leave for businesses in the United States. He did so by comparing the US to China.
China – not exactly seen as a model when it comes to human rights – provides 14 weeks of paid maternity leave. The US provides zero.

Of course, Woods couldn’t let that slide.

Ouch. Can someone get Sanders some ointment for that burn?
