- Nina Turner, a couture for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ now-axed presidential campaign, used a graphic metaphor to explain what it’s like to choose between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden in 2020.
- “It’s like saying to someone, ‘There’s a bowl in front of you — and all you have to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It is still —, ”Turner told The Atlantic in a story published on Monday.
- Neither Sanders’ office nor the Biden campaign responded immediately to a request for comment.

One of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ closest campaign advisors used a stomach-churning metaphor to describe the choice between voting for President Donald Trump and 2020 presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Speaking with The Atlantic, Nina Turner, a coach for Sanders’ failed campaign, explained why the decision between Trump and Biden was so disappointing for some progressive Democrats.
“It’s like saying to someone, ‘There’s a bowl in front of you — and all you have to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.” “Turner said.” It’s still —. “
The Atlantic went on to use his citation as one of several reasons Trump could win a reunion despite being behind in recent elections.
Business Insider contacted Sanders’ Senate office and the Biden campaign to comment on Turner’s statement, but received no response from either. It is unclear whether Turner is still working in another capacity for Sanders that he has dropped out of the race.
The 2020 Democratic presidential primary began as a field of about 30 candidates, but in March eventually fell down to a contest between Biden, a centrist, and Sanders, a progressive.
Sanders bowed out of the race and supported Biden in early April after devastating losses in states such as South Carolina, Michigan and Florida.
Biden is on track to represent Democrats against Trump in November.
However, after exiting the race, Sanders has worked with Biden on policy issues. Two people chose delegates to participate in weeks of “Unity Task Force” talks, the results of which were released earlier this month.
The recommendations show that according to The New York Times, Sanders representatives were able to get Biden’s team to move forward on issues such as healthcare, criminal justice, climate change, the economy, education and immigration.
