Sanders Trolls Trump, Pummeling His Ego And Pushing Back On His Authoritarianism

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders isn’t holding anything back when it comes to pushing back against Trump’s massive ego and drift towards authoritarianism.



Trump has been on a roll lately, seeming to use every opportunity he can find to apply balm to his wounded ego regarding his humiliating defeat in the electoral college to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and the embarrassing turnout at his inauguration ceremony.

Trump has also exhibited massive amounts of butt-ache regarding his fellow Republicans getting blasted by their own constituents from coast-to-coast at town hall meetings, going so far as to suggest that all the attendees are liberal plants.

Saturday he took to Twitter in an attempt to punch back at the situation and to satiate his ego, tweeting: “Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!”



Sanders didn’t waste any time punching back, as noted by The Hill, tweeting a short – but delightfully punishing – response.

“They did. It wasn’t,” Sanders tweeted alongside a photo of Trump’s inauguration last month, next to a photo of former President Obama’s 2009 inauguration, which drew a larger crowd.

Not done yet with Trump, Sanders blasted him a few hours later, calling on all Americans to “stand up to Trump’s drift to authoritarianism.”

On Friday, Trump delivered what Time described as “a 15-minute tirade against the press” during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

“A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are, they are the enemy of the people,” Trump said.

That same day, Trump’s administration took an authoritarian approach to the media, banning several news organizations from a Friday White House briefing.

The Guardian reports that the administration was “handpicking a select group of reporters that included a number of conservative outlets friendly toward Trump.”

Outlets seeking to gain entry whose requests were denied included the Guardian, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, BuzzFeed, the BBC, the Daily Mail and others. Conservative publications such as Breitbart News, the One America News Network and the Washington Times were allowed into the meeting, as well as TV networks CBS, NBC, Fox and ABC. The Associated Press and Time were invited but boycotted the briefing.
