It looks like Donald Trump has found a new political punching bag. After calling him ‘Crazy Bernie’ Sanders on Twitter, Donald suggested it might be time he starts attacking him instead of Hillary Clinton! Click to see.
Donald Trump, 69, has constantly picked on Hillary Clinton, 68, throughout his 2016 Presidential campaign, but does Trump have a new target? The Republican presidential candidate thinks it’s time he starts taking shots at Hill’s Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders, 74.
“Big wins in West Virginia and Nebraska,” Donald tweeted on May 11, after his Republican primary victories on May 10. “Get ready for November – Crooked Hillary, who is looking very bad against Crazy Bernie, will lose!” Bernie defeated Hill in the West Virginia primary, winning 18 delegates. Hillary still leads, 1,716 to 1,432 (or 2,240 to 1,472, if you include super delegates.)
What is it with Donald and nicknames? First he calls Ted Cruz, 45, “Lyin’ Ted,” and now he’s trashing his Dem rivals with elementary school-level insults. Donald doubled down on the “Crazy Bernie” name, tweeting that he doesn’t “want to hit Crazy Bernie Sanders too hard yet because I love watching what he is doing to Crooked Hillary. His time will come!”
Donald shouldn’t be so confident. While he’s mocking Bernie, some polls show the Vermont Senator beating Donald in the general election, per CNN. Donald blew off these results during Fox And Friends on May 11. “I’ve never hit him,” Donald said. “Don’t forget. I haven’t started on him. I haven’t said anything about him. Maybe I’m going to have to start.”

While on the morning Fox News program, Donald said, “I call him ‘Crazy Bernie’ because he’s not very good, but probably beating him would be easier [than Hillary.] Who’s going to run against the socialist and lose?” If Trump’s not careful, those words will come back to bite him.
Maybe “Delusional Donald” might be Trump’s new moniker, since polling shows him losing to both Hill and Bernie. Actually, Jon Stewart, 53, thinks American voters should call Donald “F**kface Von Clownstick. The former The Daily Show star debuted his nickname for Trump during the May 9 episode of The Axe Files. No word yet on what Donald thinks about it.
What do you think about Donald’s nickname for Bernie, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Trump will be the next president?
