New York Times Paul Krugman once again poked a stick into the Bernie Bros hive with his latest column, “Feel the Math.”

Bernie’s fellow socialists do not approve of Krugman’s constant attacks on Hillary’s opponent for the Democratic Party nomination, as shown in this fun read from last month on a socialist website, attacking Krugman as “an intellectual bagman for Wall Street and its favored candidate,” Hillary Clinton:
