Bernie Sanders totally slammed Donald Trump during his appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ on Dec. 8 and said it’s ridiculous that Donald wants to ban Muslims from entering the United States. But that’s not all he said, you’ll have to watch the clip!
Bernie Sanders has no problem calling out Donald Trump! The Presidential hopeful and Vermont Senator told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that not only is Donald’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from the United States a horrible idea but he said it’s a bunch of “crap.”
Donald’s comments on Dec. 7 that we close our border to all Muslims everywhere after the San Bernardino shootings on Dec. 2, has polarized the nation. Bernie, who hopes to beat Donald for the Republican nomination, said that Donald’s proposal is ridiculous. “Jimmy, throughout history you have had demagogues trying to to divert attention away from the real issues,” Bernie said. “This country today faces some enormous problems. We have a middle class that’s disappearing. We have almost all wealth going to the top 1%. We have climate change. We have a corrupt campaign finance system. What somebody like a Trump is trying to do is to divide us up. A few months ago we were supposed to hate Mexicans. He thinks they’re all criminals or rapists. Now we’re supposed to hate Muslims. That kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America. I think what American people understand is, given the problems we face, we’ve got to stand together, come together, and create a decent life for all of our people, and stop this scapegoating of one group or another.”
Here’s a refresher of what Donald said in his statement to ban Muslims that upset everyone so much: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” It also read: “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.”
Bernie also said that he hopes he beats Donald: “I look forward to beating Donald Trump. I would enjoy that race very, very much. But first, we’ve got to get past Secretary Clinton and I think we’re going to do that as well.”
