It's really something else to wake up Sunday morning to such an unadulterated horse manure:
Bernie is not responsible for alienating millions of young voters, Democratic party's leadership is.
Bernie is not responsible for not running a single TV ad during the presidential campaign in Wisconsin, Hillary is.
Bernie is not responsible for association with characters like Anthony Weiner, Hillary is.
Bernie didn't stab himself in the back, Democratic party leadership did.
Don't get it twisted.

Well said! Hillary had the overwhelming backing of Democratic Party establishment, mainstream-corporate media, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, military war hawks, or arms industries, and even many Republicans. She lost because she didn't have a message and was unable, or unwilling to separate herself from the backers who had poured millions to get her elected. Her message of "America is already great" was a reflection of her arrogance and disconnect with the reality. This was a slap in the face of the majority of middle class families who were struggling to make ends meet.

Hillary actually got MAJORITY OF THE VOTES (a few millions more than Trump) but Electoral College didn't work for her.
If Hillary's campaign had a more forceful presence in those four mid West states (which ultimately decided Electoral College's outcome) could that have made a difference?
It's significant to keep in mind your point about Democrats lack of a proper political message. In 2017 (so far) Democrats have already lost four elections.
Is this also Bernie's fault?

Anyone who thinks Bernie had nothing to do with the results of this election is either in denial, struggling with the guilt of the part they played in electing the current administration or both.

He fracture the party, a party he is not even a member of, buy crafting a stump speech that spoke to the loudest potential group; young white people (mostly men) and piggybacking on decades of GOP lies. He continued the fracture by inciting his followers and never denouncing their behavior, staying in the race far too long and ultimately offering no support when Hillary Clinton won the primary. He continues his work to fracture the party to this day.

Ignorance and bigotry played the largest role in this election but Bernie also played a significant hand.
