Trump Mocks Sanders for Fox Town Hall

Trump Mocks Sanders for Fox Town Hall

In a surprising visit to “enemy territory,” Virginia Senator and Democratic hopeful, Bernie Sanders, took to the airwaves of the usually unkind Fox News for a town hall on Monday night, and it didn’t take long for him (and the Trump friendly network) to earn the President’s wrath.

Of Sander’s appearance, Trump tweeted, “So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on @FoxNews,” Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice. Very strange, and now we have @donnabrazile?”

Sanders sat down with Fox News anchors Baier and Martha MacCallum for an hour-long interview before a live audience in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The hour-long interview covered a lot of topics, including taxes, immigration and health care. Somewhat surprisingly for a Fox broadcast, there were a few in the audience for the town hall that cheered and supported the famous Democrat-socialist’s plans for socialized medicine and proposal to raise taxes on the wealthy.

Political analysts praised Sanders for successfully snapping back at the Fox News hosts and believe he emerged as winning the evening by eliciting a positive response from the crowd, which obviously included some of his supporters.

“Senator, this audience — audience has a lot of Democrats in it. It has Republicans, independents, democratic socialists, conservatives,” Bair noted, before asking for a raise of hands of people who supported the idea of switching from private insurance to government healthcare. The audience cheered and applauded after many in the crowd raised their hands.

But, that didn’t stop the president from berating Bernie and the network itself for giving him a platform to espouse his far-left views.

Trump also questioned the network’s decision to hire former CNN commentator and DNC Chair Donna Brazile.

“Very strange, and now we have Donna Brazile? he added to his “Crazy Bernie” tweet.

The Socialist Millionaire

The appearance came just hours after Sanders released 10 years of tax returns that showed his adjusted gross income last year was $561,293. He also raked in more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017.

“In my and my wife’s case, I wrote a pretty good book,” Sanders said. “It was a bestseller, sold all over the world, and we made money. If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I’m sorry, I’m not gonna do it.”

Trump frequently mocked Sanders as “Crazy Bernie” when the senator from Vermont sought the Democratic nomination in the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump resurrected the nickname in February, after Sanders launched his latest bid for the presidency.

“Crazy Bernie has just entered the race. I wish him well!” he wrote on Twitter.

After Tuesday’s tweet, Fox’s Baier responded by extending an invitation to Trump.

“Thanks for watching Mr. President — we’d love to have you on a town hall soon — or even an interview on @SpecialReport — it’s been a while,” Baier wrote on Twitter. “We cover all sides.”

    Bernie has a communist scowl that speaks volumes about his hatred of America.

    I was not aware that Sanders is a Virginia senator. What else might I have missed on Fox?

    Be careful and make a correction or you’ll be laughed at. Bernie is from Vermont as you say later.
    Not Vergenia as you first say.
    Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence not Lincoln!!

    Bernie is the Senator from Vermont. They just got it wrong in the beginning but they got it right later. You have to give it to Bernie to get Dumbo Donald’s attention after Bernie released his tax returns and appeared on FOX. Made Bernie look good!

      How nice… gets rich from America , through a capalist economy where every one has the right to dream and perform, , but slams America , what a hypocrit! He’s a leftover Hippie from the 60’s , never has did a hard days work in his life! He spent years kissing ass in Cuba and Russia, doesn’t bother him at all that people were oppressed, poor, starving, no rights, shot by the government, and lived under dictatorship rule! He is one ungrateful American, no respect for freedom and individual rights! He preaches his socialist bullshit, will tax the middle class to death, just give that tax money away to every low- life, convicts the right to vote…. he’s fricking crazy! Don’t care about his age, he’s dangerous for America!
