“The Democrat establishment came together and crushed Bernie Sanders, AGAIN!” he wrote in a Wednesday morning tweet.
“Even the fact that Elizabeth Warren stayed in the race was devastating to Bernie and allowed Sleepy Joe to unthinkably win Massachusetts. It was a perfect storm, with many good states remaining for Joe!” he added, New York Post reported.
On Tuesday night, former Vice President Joe Biden swept the Super Tuesday contests with wins in Texas and Virginia, to name a few.
States where Biden was expected to trail Sanders (I-Vt.) considerably, including Minnesota and Massachusetts, ended up being surprise victories for the comeback candidate.
After Biden’s dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire in early February, Democratic megadonors and voters alike began publicly panicking over whether their candidate of choice could make it to the general election.
The former VP’s resounding win in Saturday’s primary in South Carolina, where he took home a staggering 48.4 percent of the vote, offered a boost of new energy to his candidacy.
Moderate rivals Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar deciding on Sunday and Monday, respectively, to bow out of the race and endorse Biden allowed for the moderate wing to coalesce around Biden as the frontrunner.
