Bernie Sanders: Donald Trump can look 'dumb' all by himself

Posted on

Comedy Central

Donald Trump has managed to offend numerous groups during his run for president, and because of that, he’s saving fellow presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders some campaign dollars.

“I don’t have to spend money to make Donald Trump look dumb,” Sanders told Larry Wilmore on Tuesday. “He does it all himself.”

The Vermont senator sat down with Wilmore on the Nightly Show to discuss gun control, affordable college tuition, and the 2016 presidential race’s most controversial candidate.

“I am yet to recover from Trump’s shock that woman go to the bathroom. I’m still recovering from that, so ‘schlonged’ I have yet to figure out,” Sanders said, referring to the term Trump used to describe Hilary Clinton’s 2008 loss to Barack Obama in the Democratic primary.

When Wilmore asked Sanders if he’d “schlong” Trump in the upcoming presidential race should they both receive the nomination, the 74-year-old was hesitant to use the term, but confident in his abilities to succeed. Sanders said, “Let me say, we will beat him badly.”
