Only Democrats can get away with this level of pandering.
Bernie Sanders visited a Taste of Black Columbia in South Carolina on Friday and posed with a black worker while holding a fried chicken leg. Another photo shows him biting into it.

Some on Twitter saw through Sanders.
“Shaking my head,” one person wrote, posting the acronym.

“Bernie Sanders needs new black advisors,” he wrote.
Sanders isn’t the first Democrat to get a pass at pandering to black people.
In 2016, Bill Clinton visited Louisville, Kentucky and visited a soul food restaurant where he served fried chicken to patrons.
As Saturday Morning Solutions, a weekly black radio show, reported, “Bill Clinton came to the hood in Louisville and LITERALLY served fried chicken to Black people.”

Will Clark of WHAS tweeted another photo of Clinton serving food without a hairnet, gloves or an apron.
The Health Department would call that “first black president privilege.”

Hillary Clinton was accused of engaging in black stereotypes when she insisted to a trio of black radio hosts that she always carries hot sauce in her purse.
Hot Air reported that year:
During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club,” a morning radio show on Urban/Hip Hop radio station Power 105.1 in New York, Hillary Clinton (D-NY)said she always carries hot sauce with her wherever she goes.
The radio hosts immediately responded with giggles and snorts of recognition. You see, the suggestion that she carries hot sauce in her purse was immediately recognized as the lowest form of pandering to the radio program’s African-American audience. …
One of the show’s co-host’s, Charlamagne Tha God said to her, “now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people,’”
Clinton’s response: “Okay, is it working?”
The pandering is strong with this one.
