Report: 'Rude and Cranky' Bernie Sanders Loses San Fran Restaurant Owner's Vote


2020 Democratic hopeful and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) apparently lost a San Francisco restaurant owner’s vote after the owner said he was “rude and cranky” to his waiting staff, according to Politico

John Konstin, owner of the historic bistro John’s Grill, says his restaurant hosted many Democrats who were in town for the three-day Democratic National Committee event held over the weekend. Sanders reportedly arrived with about 15 members of his team and wasn’t very kind to any of the restaurant staff.

“It was all very nice, except for cranky Bernie,” Konstin told Politico. “He didn’t want to shake hands, he didn’t want a picture.”

The whole experience left Konstin disgusted with the “rude and cranky” Democratic presidential candidate and caused him to change his mind about the upcoming 2020 primary election:

“He lost my vote,” he said.

Sanders’ campaign did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment regarding the incident.

John’s Grill is an 111-year-old restaurant that was featured in the 1930 classic film, “The Maltese Falcon.” Over the years it has become a common occurrence to see politicians have a meal there. 

If you so happened to be curious, the senator ordered lobster bisque, an heirloom tomato salad, and a Diet Coke.
