Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Mince Words In Reaction To Trump Tape At Philly Rally

By Alexandria Hoff and Hadas Kuznits 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — While campaigning for Hillary Clinton and Katie McGinty in South Philadelphia today, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders did not mince words when it came to his thoughts on the release of the 2005 tape that captures Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump using crude, derogatory language to describe encounters with women.

“I think you’ve got a spoiled brat,” said Senator Sanders to Eyewitness News, “I think you’ve got a person who grew up very very wealthy who thinks that he is entitled to do anything that he wants.”

In an apology video released by Trump Friday night he begins by saying “I’ve never said I’m a perfect person,” and concludes by pointing to what he feel is the mistreatment of women by the Clinton’s, saying;

“Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims.”

Sanders quickly dismissed this comparison.

“I don’t believe that is A) true, B) second of all maybe for once in his life Trump might want to take responsibility for his own actions,” he said.

Somewhat overshadowed in all of this has been the Friday release of hacked Hillary Clinton emails that seemed to demonstrate the kind of relationship with Wall Street that Senator Sanders had been so critical of while campaigning against her. When asked about this he said that he believes in where the party is at the current time, adding “Whatever Clinton may have said behind closed doors, that’s fine”.

Those who came out to hear Senator Sanders speak said it was much of what they expected to hear.

“A lot of it was the big part of his stump speeches all along, which, as everyone knows, gained incredible traction incredibly quickly.”

And some former Sanders supporters said the question of Trump has absolutely influenced their vote in November.

“I was a Bernie or Bust guy for a while. I was on the fence after the DNC about going to the Green Party, but after thinking about it, I realized that it was really important that it was really important to not risk Donald Trump becoming president.”


One Comment

  1. I am Canadian. I have been a Bernie Sanders supporter. If you meet people from around the world, and I do as an educator of adults who come from countries of every continent, the consensus is that the world cannot afford the U.S. to put Trump in the power seat. The shame will attach to those who would assist such an outcome. You can paint everyone who disagrees with you in your favourite flavour of ad hominem, but the fact is: we cannot allow it. Vote with your conscience and a full perspective – and compassion for all humans – not just your own agenda for this election.

  2. Bernie supporters must vote for Hillary.With all her flaws we can’t have Trump in the White House.

    1. I will NEVER compromise my conscience nor will I become a brain dead fearful sheep like most Americans. I am going third party so that we give our next election a more representative field because the more that vote 3rd Party the more funding and foothold they will get next election.

      You are probably a typical Hilbot that actually watches and believes the MSM and never actually researched the public records on the appalling History of Hillary. SHAME ON YOU

        So after being called a “berniebot” for the past year or so you think it’s going to insult others using the same language? You were never a supporter of Bernie.
