"Bernie Sanders Pushes Trump Towards A Nervous Breakdown By Calling Out His Lies"

Link to Bernie Sanders Pushes Trump Towards A Nervous Breakdown By Calling Out His Lies; excerpt:

ABCís This Week:

SANDERS: Well, I think anybody who understands Mr. Trumpís campaign knows that he tells the truth very, very rarely and Iím afraid that on this occasion, heís lying again. First of all, he calls me a communist. Obviously, thatís a lie. Then he says that our campaign is organizing disruptions of his rallies. Thatís a lie. George, we have millions of supporters out there, and clearly, some of them were at that rally, along with many, many other protesters. But to say that we organized that, totally untrue. Uh, Mr. Trump, I think, is getting very nervous. He is catching onto the fact that the American people do not support a candidate like Trump, whose ó whose verbiage, whose language, whose rhetoric incites violence. I mean weíve all seen rhetoric ó weíve all seen some of the video of people at his rallies sucker punching people, of kicking people. And I would urge Mr. Trump, really, to tone it down, uh, to not incite violence on the part of his supporters.... But I think what we are seeing in the Trump campaign is not only racist attacks, but what youíre seeing is attacks on Muslims, on women, on veterans. To attack Senator John McCain because he was a POW is crazy. To insult Mexicans, our neighbors to the south, calling Mexicans a rapist or ó or criminals, this guy ó there was a big debate in the United Kingdom parliament of whether or not he should even be allowed to enter the United Kingdom. This is a man who is dividing up his country in very serious ways, frightening ways.

Earlier on Sunday, Trump went on a delusional rant where he claimed that thousands of Sanders supporters are responsible for the violence that is occurring at his rallies. Bernie Sanders is doing the United States of America a great service by doing what the Republican Party canít. Sen. Sanders is shining a light on the racism, bigotry, and hate that is being campaigned on by Donald Trump.

Sanders is the complete opposite of Trump. Bernie Sanders is a dedicated public servant who has built a career on integrity, principles, and values. Trump is a person with no values who is only concerned with making deals and ďwinning.Ē Donald Trump has no credibility or integrity and has spent decades in the singular pursuit of building the Trump brand.... If Bernie Sanders keeps up the pressure, Donald Trump is going to crack. Bernie Sanders is in Trumpís head, and the senator from Vermont is on the verge of derailing the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.

It's clear that Bernie has set out to puncture this blowhard in short order.

3. I've been having he idea that Trump will "crack", too.

I can see him with his big red wagon. I finally put my finger on it! I see him having a tantrum, and aiming blame on someone or the system, and turning his wagon around and splitting.

But then there's the alternative. His money is what frightens me. He wouldn't be in this race without it. I know a Trump clone, and is you get on his wrong side, he will waste all kinds of resources in the pleasure of the pursuit of winning.

It's a wild ride.

8. The false equivalency of comparing people demonstrating

against a fascist white supremacist with the most unstable racist followers of Trump is a dirty dirty trick, DO NOT FALL FOR IT. But it takes nerves of steel to not be goaded into fighting on their level.

There are hundreds and thousands of people suffering from PTSD in this country, too many people who have been destabilized and broken by living through these wars, economic collapse and the resultant health crises.

Opportunists like Trump, who have studied Hitlers speeches, knows that unstable times are ripe to take over--he is a predator, a shark and recognizes that there are enough broken and mentally weakened people out there to jump on his crazy train. It takes a special kind of devil to capitalize on human frailties, and he is one MF.

Bernie Sanders has set an example of how to channel and focus this anger into working for us, it is an art and a high skill. This anger is a FUEL, and we cannot allow the predators to attempt to steal our fire, let us put it to work to make a better future.

9. I worked for a company that had a CEO who was very paranoid of being in contact with

the john doe employee. He would get on the elevator and his personal security would order everyone out. He fired his admin who had been with him for 20 years to get someone younger. The older admin send him a floral basket thanking him for all the years. He called the Little Rock bomb squad on the package.

Those type people are dangerous because they don't trust any one at all. Trump probably rotates personal security guards in and out so none of them with know his routine. He probably doesn't trust his boys that much.

The CEO, Ken Olsen, was a great guy. Stories abound about people encountering him in supermarkets, etc. He was always coming around talking to any random employee. Most employees that I knew thought working for his company was the best job they ever had in their lives.

so the board fired him after 2 DWI. The CFO (who he picked for CFO) took over and is doing a great job now.

even if he DID manage to derail him (and it's not clear how that would happen in reality, since Trump's support doesn't come from rational people to begin with), Option 2 for the Republicans is certainly no better, and quite possibly even worse.

13. I hope Bernie has good security.

Trump is a truly dangerous and violent individual and I wouldn't put it past him to put out a hit on Bernie. Think he kind of is already doing that by sending the goons out to disrupt Bernie's rallies, hurt Bernie's supporters. Its only one step further to go after Bernie personally. Of course he wouldn't do it himself and he'd deny it 10 ways to Wednesday, but it is something I'm worried about.

49. That's an interesting way to interpret what I said. I'll try to explain clearly.

I would never advocate the killing of anyone, evil or otherwise. In fact, I'm opposed to the death penalty in all cases. Sadly, however, too many of our really good men have been killed while still in their prime, with so much promise ahead of them. Others who, to be generous, have contributed negatively to our society have been able to live their lives fully while benefitting from profiteering and warmongering. I do not wish Mr. Cheney ill. I just wish he, in particular, would fully retire.
