Donald Trump might be feeling the burn (or should we say Bern) on this one! Bernie Sanders stopped by ‘The Ellen Show’ to discuss such issues as corporate greed and the middle class, but also couldn’t help but take a few digs at The Donald’s hair in a hilarious segment with Ellen Degeneres. Watch it here!
Burn, Bernie, burn! Fresh from the Democratic debate in Las Vegas, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, 74, found himself in the hot seat once again on Oct. 14 when he stopped by The Ellen Show to tape a series of segments airing the following day. While speaking to host Ellen DeGeneres, 57, on such important topics as his favorite One Direction member and America’s disappearing middle class, Bernie also answered the one question we’ve all been dying to ask him: Who has better hair, you or Donald Trump?
In a segment aptly titled “The Hot Seat,” the notoriously private senator sat down with the daytime host to answer a series of personal questions as part of a Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser. While he shared a number of revealing things about himself, including which presidential candidate he would want to be stuck on a desert island with, the highlight of the segment was no doubt Bernie’s answer to the question, “Who has better hair, you or Donald Trump?” Without hesitation, the presidential hopeful started laughing as he touched his own hair and said, “well, that should be obvious.” While he may not have came right out and said it, Bernie seemed to be applying that yes, his hair is in fact a step above the Donald’s — as if it were even a contest!
Still, while Bernie may have the better head of hair among the two, that didn’t stop Ellen from cracking her own joke about the senator’s famously tousled strands. While mentioning that Bernie himself has been mocked for his sometimes unkept hair, Ellen pointed out that he actually shares a striking resemblance to her wife Portia De Rossi. “Portia has hair like yours sometimes,” she joked while showing a side-by-side photo of her wife’s bed-hair and an image of Bernie from the campaign trail. We have to admit the resemblance is pretty uncanny!
Hair jokes aside, the interview also revealed a number of other very important facts about the presidential hopeful. For starters, his favorite member of One Direction is none other than Harry Styles, 21,. He also admitted to having been arrested as young kid after taking part in a civil rights demonstration, and if given the opportunity, he would make a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor called, “Bern Baby Bern.” Now THAT’S a platform we can get on board with!
