Bernie Sanders Just Delivered The Most Epic Smackdown On Trump
During a campaign event in Maryland, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday unloaded on President Donal Trump, calling him “the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history.”
Campaign staffers “are working to make sure that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate,” Sanders said of campaigns across the country.
Trump’s bombastic rhetoric has been thrust to the center of a national debate over the country’s political divide, with critic’s suggesting Trump bears some responsibility for the climate that led to explosive devices being sent to the president’s critics and a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday that killed 11 worshippers.
The White House has denied any culpability for both the mailed explosive devices and the Pittsburgh shooting.
“I think it’s irresponsible to blame the president and members of his administration for those heinous acts,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a press briefing Monday.
Bernie Sanders, who is reportedly considering another presidential run in 2020, was campaigning for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D).
“Right now, my focus is on the year 2018, but if you’re asking me to make an absolute pledge as to whether I’ll be running for president or not, I’m not going to make that pledge. The simple truth is I have not made that decision. But I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I may not run. I may. But on the other hand, I may not,” he said at a forum Monday night in Vermont.
