Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is having a difficult time with his latest tweet assailing the wealthy.
First, Sanders, who ran a progressive presidential campaign criticizing Wall Street and the rich, tweeted out a message Thursday evening with what seems to be a typo, telling billionaires: “You can have it all.”

After deleting the initial tweet and replacing it with a new one, swapping “can” with “can’t”, Sanders was mercilessly mocked for questioning how yachts and cars billionaires need when he and his wife bought their third house — a $600,000 beachfront residence — in August.
How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can’t have it all.

@BernieSanders How many houses do u need Bernie? You have 3 and you’re in the top 3.8%. Really, if you hate capitalism so much, why not move to Europe?
