Need Assistance: Defending Bernie Against Family

So my Christmas was unpleasantly contentious this year. Mainly because I refuse to stay quiet about what a disaster Trump is. My parents are ultra conservative Christian Republicans…I know, an oxymoron. Anyway, their biggest argument against Bernie is that he is a “millionaire” with “3 houses”.

To me that is so absurd to suggest that simply because he has invested his money wisely, and purchased property through those investments (from his books, pension, etc.) that he is somehow unable to speak against the ultra wealthy and corruption.

So I did a google search about his money, and I was blown away at the insane attacks from every major news media outlet from the obvious Fox News, to the disappointing CNBC. Each one just going to town on him for having wisely invested his money.

So here’s what I’m asking for, is there responses to this? Has he addressed this at all? I feel like it’s a ridiculous argument but I also feel like there’s more to the story that I don’t know. Honestly I don’t think Bernie needs to defend himself at all. It’s not like he got this money from illegitimate means. But I’d like to be more informed and have a defense next time this comes up at the next family get together.

Any help is appreciated.
