WASHINGTON (JTA) — Bernie Sanders joined his old friend Joe Biden in a live webcast to endorse him on Monday, and the two candidates left standing in the Democratic primaries emphasized that they agree on more than what they disagree on.

“Today I am asking all Americans, I am asking every Democrat, I am asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy which I endorse to make certain that we defeat somebody who I believe, and I’m speaking just for myself, now is the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said.

Biden audibly sighed with gratitude.

“Your endorsement means a great deal, it means a great deal to me,” he said.

Israel and foreign policy weren’t mentioned in the 36-minute exchange even though Sanders, the first Jewish candidate to be the front-runner in a major-party nominating contest, has worked to move the Democratic Party’s views on the Jewish state to the left.

Sanders has sharply criticized the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling the longtime Israeli leader racist. He has also said that he would leverage aid to Israel to influence the country’s policy and has aligned with pro-Palestinian figures, including some who have made statements seen as anti-Semitic.

Instead, Biden asked Sanders to talk about the issues that Sanders believed to be most urgent. Biden accepted Sanders’ demand for a $15 minimum wage, forgiving student debt and free community colleges, although the candidates seemingly still differed over a key Sanders demand, free universal health care. Biden said he would endeavor to make health care more affordable and available.

They also spoke of their long friendship and joked about playing chess online together.

“We’ll bore everybody for a few hours,” Sanders said.

  3. And now the Hasbara Cyber Terrorist are really going to dump on Joe Biden:
    Yesterday Hasbara/IDF’s talking point was:
    Joe is old etc
    Then it was Joe is Senile etc
    Now it appears to be:
    Joe is a Zionist !
    We need to call bullshit on these Hasbara Trolls !
    When Sheldon Adelson gives Joe Biden 100 million dollars and He is endorsed by AIPAC and the JDl then
    it might be a different story.
    Remember Joe Biden was President Obama’s VP, and Obama was the only President we have ever had that stood up to Israel and it’s crime ministers.
    President Obama called Netanyahu a chicken shit !
    Joe Biden was endorsed by Obama today.
    Biden will cut off aid to Israel until they return to their 1967 borders.
    That is why Hasbara is attacking Biden.

    • Lol. I’ve been fighting zio trolls for a lot longer than your imagination has reached.

      True that Obama was hated by Israel and I’ve always posted that his not vetoing the revolution 2334 was the best thing to put the dagger into Likud but it was on his way out.
      But Biden was and is no Obama. And he’s definitely not Bill Clinton who got literally blown for telling Bibi to retrieve from the settlements. In the first month of Obama someone didn’t fight back the hasbara put on Chas Freeman. And I always wondered why that happened.

      Still he’s the only choice left. But to bring your rant back to the subject above why do you think Bernie didn’t mention Israel with Joe ?

    • How much money will Biden take from Hollywood mogul and notorious Democratic Party donor Haim “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel” Saban?
