Donald Trump doesn’t appear to be the only Presidential candidate who’s a bit bummed he didn’t win the Iowa caucus on Monday. The democratic-socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders seems to be a bit disappointed as well… but for a completely different reason.
“I’m prejudiced,” Sanders said at a CNN town hall in Derry, N.H., Wednesday night. “I want Trump to win the Republican nomination. And I would love the opportunity to run against him. I think we would win by a lot.”
It appears that Brooklyn native Bernie Sanders would like nothing more than to beat the dyed-laundry-trap-lint off Queens native Donald Trump’s head in November’s general election.
As the town hall continued, CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Sanders how he would appeal to independent voters in New Hampshire, as primary voters in N.H. can vote for either party’s candidate without being registered.
“I would say, examine Trump’s record carefully,” Sanders said, adding that it was not only the billionaire’s “bigoted” remarks against Muslims and immigrants that he finds so offensive, The Hill reports.
“If you examine his agenda, it is not an agenda for working Americans,” he continued.
Sanders reinforced this statement by reminding the town hall attendees of one of Donald Trump’s statements at a republican debate regarding the minimum wage.
“Trump in a Republican debate said wages are too high in America. Really?” Sanders remarked. “Too high in America?”
In America, it is possible to work 40+ hours a week and still not have enough money to pay your bills and provide your family with food. For millions of working Americans it’s one or the other, but Trump thinks wages are too high. (WTF to that)
Sanders concluded the Trump portion of the town hall by mocking Trump’s “theory” on climate change.
“And here’s the other one that kind of blows me away. Trump is, as you know, a well-known scientist. Brilliant scientist,” Sanders said sarcastically.
“He has concluded after years of studying the issue that climate change is a hoax, brought to us by the Chinese,” Sanders said.
“Now that shocked me … because I thought that he would’ve thought it was a hoax brought to us by the Mexicans or the Muslims,” he continued.
And of course, in typical 16-year-old “mean girl” fashion, Trump took to Twitter with his rebuttal:

Sanders says he wants to run against me because he doesn't want to run against me. He would be so easy to beat!
