WATCH: Liberals BOO 2020 Dem Candidate Who Says “Socialism Isn’t the Answer”

Speaking in California during the weekend, 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful John Hickenlooper was booed by liberals in the audience, following his remarks on his party’s embrace of socialism.

“If we want to beat Donald Trump, and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer,” said Hickenlooper, eliciting boos from the crowd.

Hickenlooper, who is polling near the bottom of the substantially packed pool of would-be Democrat candidates, has sought to portray himself as a moderate after announcing his White House bid.

Social media commenters noted that the reaction to Hickenlooper’s anti-socialism remarks from California liberals was hardly surprising.
