Bernie never fails to deliver when it comes to fairness and civility, even when it’s one of his rivals that has been slighted.
During a speech following a Democratic debate, Hillary did the unthinkable – by using the restroom during a commercial break. Of course, as a result, Donald Trump “went there” again with some extremely crude and vulgar commentary towards Hillary. He is personally lowering the bar of right-wing American politics to a level from which it may never get raised again. Trump started making fun of her, calling her disgusting for having to do something he himself does multiple times every single day. It seems Trump thinks that the idea of women having to use a restroom is just too taboo of a subject for him to accept as a fact of life.
Leave it to Bernie to return Trump to his proper spot in the clown car. Soon afterward, Bernie decided to weigh in on Trump’s comments and he was NOT kind. Mocking Trump terribly, he told his audience that Donald “has discovered that women go to the bathroom and it’s very upsetting for him!” Bernie then continued mocking Trump in the way he so richly deserved, by suggesting “He must have a very unusual relationship with women.”
It might not be great politics to defend your opponent, but Bernie returns a dignity to the circus that is American politics. Regardless of who anyone supports, I think we can all appreciate him for bringing that to the table.
