Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is mocking one of Republican Donald Trump’s recent comments about Hillary Clinton.
“Donald Trump is very upset. It’s very hard for him to deal with. I don’t know what his relationship with women has been in his life, but he has discovered that women go to the bathroom,” Sanders said at a Council Bluffs rally last night and the crowd roared with laughter.
Earlier this week Trump said it’s “disgusting” that Clinton went to the bathroom during a commercial break in last weekend’s Democratic candidate debate. Sanders jokingly made an admission of his own Tuesday night.
“I’ve got to be honest with you. I’ve got to lay it out on the table: I also went to the bathroom,” Sanders said and the crowd cheered as Sanders stuck with his sarcasm. “I know. I have to admit it. I guess I’m a man. Men are allowed to go to the bathroom, but women? What can we say?”
Sanders spoke to nearly 1800 people last night in Council Bluffs, touting his campaign agenda, including his call for an increase in the minimum wage. Sanders said Trump, who opposes a minimum wage hike, won’t “make American great again” for everyone, just for millionaires like himself.
Sanders also pointed to a recent poll which suggests if the General Election were held today and it was Sanders versus Trump, Sanders would win.
“It would give me nothing but great satisfaction,” Sanders said yesterday. “Boy, would I love that.”
Sanders is wrapping up a three-day campaign swing through Iowa with a town hall meeting in Red Oak this morning. Sanders will return to Iowa early next week for more campaigning.
