Trump just coined an offensive nickname for Bernie. Bernie’s response is brutal


Yesterday, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) announced his 2020 candidacy for president to much fanfare, raising over $6 million in just over 24 hours, immediately staking himself as a legitimate threat to the Trump presidency.

The president responded by muddying the waters and trying to reopen up old wounds from 2016 by asserting that Sanders wasn’t treated fairly back them. Perhaps to alienate Democrats who loathe everything about Trump, he then stated that he and Sanders agree on trade, then added that he thinks the Vermont senator has already missed his chance to become president. His strategy is clear: divide Democratic voters.

Today, Trump woke up and unveiled the insulting nickname he’ll be using for Sanders during this election cycle by referring to him as “Crazy Bernie.” The president, who is known for pegging all of his political opponents with offensive monikers, should have put a little more effort in this time as it comes across as incredibly lazy.

Despite what one thinks of Senator Sanders, there’s nothing “crazy” about him. The man is remarkably consistent in his opinions and policy goals and unlike Trump isn’t prone to weird, senile, stream of consciousness rants. Indeed, while the president’s mind seems to be deteriorating just two years into his term, Sanders sounds more coherent and focused than ever.


Sanders responded quickly to the tweet, immediately demonstrating that he is ready to take the president on directly in order to win the office. He seized on the “crazy” term but flipped it around to say that what’s crazy is having a president who is “a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe and a fraud,” four things which most Americans have realized by now apply to President Trump.

Sanders then pivoted to an inspiring call to bring people together and said that not only is the country going to get rid of Trump, but they’re going to bring about a much-needed economic and political “transformation.” Clearly, he intends to offer a much brighter, more optimistic future for America than the one envisioned by the decrepit creature currently cooped up in the Oval Office.

Round one goes to Bernie.
