Hoax: Bernie Sanders “My object in life is to dethrone God” tweet
A current social media hoax claims that Bernie Sanders tweeted “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism” on August 10th, 2015. The Bernie Sanders hoax uses an edited image of Bernie Sanders twitter account to spread the faux tweet.
Bernie Sanders did not tweet “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.” This has been fully researched as a hoax created by someone online to politically slander the self-described democratic socialist who is competing for presidency in 2016.
Researchers have gone through every Bernie Sanders tweet and could not find a tweet that says “my object in life is to dethrone God.”
