Mike Rowe: Bernie Sanders a ‘Knucklehead’
Somebody’s Gotta Do It host Mike Rowe called Sen. Bernie Sanders a “knucklehead” after Sanders suggested that individuals who don’t go to college will end up in prison.
At the end of the day, providing a path to go to college is a helluva lot cheaper than putting people on a path to jail.

“I wonder sometimes, if the best way to question the increasingly dangerous idea that a college education is the best path for the most people, is to stop fighting the sentiment directly, and simply shine a light on the knuckleheads who continue to perpetuate this nonsense,” Rowe wrote in a lengthy Facebook note.
“In less than 140 characters, he’s managed to imply that a path to prison is the most likely alternative to a path to college. Pardon my acronym, but…WTF!?” Rowe added.
“The truth, in my opinion, is this: There is no alternative for an education, and no hope for a person who doesn’t want to learn something useful and apply it. But there are many, many alternatives to college. And none of them come with a prison sentence,” Rowe wrote.
