Donald Trump was banking on being able to sway Bernie voters to himself once Hillary became the Democratic presidential nominee. He’d been trying to half-assedly reach out to them time and again by defending Bernie from what Donald called a rigged primary. Since no informed progressive really would support a Trump presidency, it’s hard to tell what Donald was thinking. However, he really seemed to have himself convinced this would happen.
Then came Bernie’s endorsement of Hillary, and little Donnie went into a bit of a meltdown on Twitter. Among many other stupid things, and there was a vast amount of them, he shot this insult directly at the Bernster.
Bernie Sanders, who has lost most of his leverage, has totally sold out to Crooked Hillary Clinton. He will endorse her today – fans angry!

It turned out Bernie saw Donald’s jab at him, and then reminded him – This is Bernie freakin’ Sanders you’re dealing with.
Big talk from the same guy who was too afraid to debate Bernie in California. https://t.co/LVCjo0PKrN

Donald did generally the same thing he’s been doing for years now. He claims to be a fan or supporter of a person, right up until that person tells him to go screw himself. Then suddenly, Trump’s previous fandom for whoever he’s talking about turns to instant rage and how he’s always hated the person. It’s so damned childish, it’d be funny if it wasn’t from a person that could become the next American president.
Donald was afraid to debate Bernie in California. He didn’t have a full schedule and he wasn’t busy washing his hair that night. He simply chickened out, even after TV networks and wealthy individuals offered to sponsor the debate. Donald said he would debate Bernie for $10 million being donated to women’s charities. Then, offers for the charity donation actually came in and Donald turned and ran. Later he claimed he was “only kidding.”
If you think about it, a Trump presidency would be the only one that had to happen over Twitter since the only “strength” he would project as a leader came in doses of 140 characters or less. How the hell will he be able to face down Vladimir Putin while he’s busy hiding behind his keyboard?
