Sorry, Donald Trump, but you’re not going to win over Bernie Sanders’s supporters. While appearing on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ on June 23, Bernie trashed Trump, saying the Bernie Bros would never vote for a ‘bigot.’ Click to watch.
If Donald Trump, 70, was hoping for a political bromance with Bernie Sanders, 74, the Republican presidential candidate got his heart broken. Trump would love for all of Bernie’s backers to help him beat Hillary Clinton, 68, in the 2016 Presidential election, but after Donald’s history of racist comments, Bernie said that’s not going to happen!
While talking with Stephen Colbert, 52, during the June 23 episode of The Late Show, Stephen brought up how Donald said, “rotten system — the fix was in…Bernie’s supporters, come vote for Trump.” When asked if his voters should pick Donald over Hillary, Bernie didn’t have to think twice. “My supporters are smart enough to know that we do not want a bigot to become president of the United States,” he said. Feel the Berne!
Bernie said that he agreed with Hillary and that “Trump has got to be defeated.” Though Hill defeated Bernie in the Democratic Primary, the Vermont senator has vowed to vote for her in the 2016 Presidential election. While Bernie will never tell his supporters to pick Trump, he does want them to be a major part of the Democratic National Convention.
Yeah, it doesn’t seem likely that Bernie voters will suddenly support a man that launched his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans “rapists” and “drug dealers.” Remember, Donald also has called for a ban on Muslim immigrants. He also made fun of Asians and didn’t immediately disavow his support from the KKK. That doesn’t really sound like someone the Bernie Bros will go for, even if they don’t like Hillary.
There was a moment when it looked like Donald and Bernie were going to be the biggest rivalry in politics. After Donald decided to go after “Crazy Bernie,” his Dem rival said he would be thrilled to debate Donald, one-on-one. Jimmy Kimmel, 48, got Donald to agree to the debate, but the ex-Celebrity Apprentice star pulled out. The Internet wasn’t happy with that, and they pelted Donald with #ChickenTrump memes. Yikes! So much for that bi-partisan bromance.
Do you think any of Bernie’s supporters will pick Donald over Hillary, HollywoodLifers? Or do you think Bernie’s backers will vote for the Democratic candidate?
