Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Democratic socialist who owns three houses, loves his private airplanes. And he may hate the 1 percent, but he loves flying first class, too.

A photo of Sanders in first class popped up again this week, posted by Hank Thomas, CEO of Strategic Cyber Ventures.

The post has been retweeted nearly 17,000 times and has more than 50,000 likes.

Twitterers had a field day.

When Bernie’s not at one of his three house or in first class, he’s flying in private jets.

“Bernie Sanders spent more on private jet travel in three months than his closest competitors in the Democratic presidential race,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“Federal Election Commission filings that the presidential campaigns submitted on Friday for October through December reveal that the socialist Vermont senator’s campaign spent $1.2 million on private air travel through charter flight companies Advanced Aviation Team and Apollo Jets.”

Sanders, apparently not a fan of the hoi polloi, has a long history of flying on private jets. In a single month in 2018, he forked out nearly $300,000 flying around on private jets.

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”
