Bernie Sanders Calls Donald Trump a Demagogue, Looks Forward to Beating Him (Video)

Senator Bernie Sanders was on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon last night, where he was more than happy to talk about beating Donald Trump.

And when he got onto the subject of Trump, he quickly got down to brass tacks and explained exactly what Donald Trump is trying to do.

“You know, throughout history, you have had demagogues trying to divert attention away from the real issues. This country today faces some enormous problems. We have a middle class that is disappearing, we have almost all new wealth and income going to the top one percent, we have climate change, we have a corrupt campaign finance system.

And what somebody like a Trump is trying to do is to divide us up. A few months ago we were supposed to hate Mexicans — and he thinks they’re all criminals or rapists — now we’re supposed to hate Muslims. And that kind of crap is not going to work in the United States of America”.

Sanders then went on to add, “I look forward to beating Donald Trump”.

Which, let’s face it, unless you’re a Trump supporter and enjoy the bigoted, racist garbage he spews on a daily basis, you already know Trump doesn’t stand a chance against Bernie Sanders.

As Sanders then admitted, all he has to do is to beat Hillary.
