Jets and Sharks. Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. Add to the list of NYC feuds: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
On Tuesday, (Bronx-born) Blankfein tweeted that (Brooklyn native) Sanders would "ruin our economy." He also said Sanders "doesn't care about our military" and "is just as polarizing as [President] Trump."
For good measure, he suggested that Sanders was such a weak candidate, Russians seeking to throw the U.S. election would be wise to support him.
Sanders, whose platform includes taxing the rich and establishing a Hunger Games for hedge fund managers, won Tuesday's New Hampshire Democratic primary. His hard-left policies are causing much concern among current Wall Streeters and its retiree community.
Zoom out: This isn't a new show, just the latest episode. A year ago, Blankfein and Sanders Twitter-sparred over stock buybacks. And in 2012, Sanders called Blankfein "the face of class warfare" from the Senate floor.
