"That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women" says Trump about Bernie

Donald Trump Calls Bernie Sanders 'Weak' For Letting Black Lives Matter Activists Talk
"Believe me, that's not going to happen to Trump."


"That showed such weakness," Donald Trump said of Bernie Sanders' encounter with Black Lives Matter.

Donald Trump took on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday, scorning the Democratic presidential candidate as "weak" for allowing Black Lives Matter activists to take over the mic during a speech this past weekend.

"That would never happen to me," the GOP presidential candidate told a crowd of some 2,800 supporters in Michigan. "I thought that was disgusting," he added. "That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women -- the microphone. They just took the whole place over."

While Trump saw one likeness between himself and Sanders -- "He's getting the biggest crowds and I'm getting the biggest crowds." -- the real estate mogul repeated that he wouldn't have stepped back and let the women talk. "Believe me," he said, "that's not going to happen to Trump."

4. Right, he doesn't let anyone else talk when he's talking. Rigid, uncompromising and pompous are not

great presidential qualities. That being said, though, I was disappointed in that footage because Bernie didn't have good event management/security people around him on that public stage.

7. Bernie's old school polite.

 

Something Trump knows nothing about.

Politeness is not weakness. It's what separates us from the animals, although, truth be told, animals are better beings.

I imagine Trump shot out of a cannon.

8. I think Sen. Sanders did the right thing.

He made a quick assessment of the situation and apparently realized that any attempt to engage the two women in conversation would have been met with even greater hostility. Therefore, his best approach was to take his sail out of their wind.

He shouldn't worry about the GOP reaction -- they were ready with condemnation no matter what course he took.

10. Bernie is a gentleman

I know it's an old fashioned term, but I admire anyone who respects another persons point of view. He had another commitment and did the best he could at the moment.

From what I have read Bernie gave the women an opportunity to voice their opinion.

The BLM activist had every right to speak up. I think they over played their advantage.

If it was any other rally the women would have been in jail.

Just my opinion.

12. Trump would have called them "disgusting fat pigs"

 

and his hair would have then assaulted them on stage.

14. Dammit!!! The mic was not his to give away!

The event was sponsored by the Social Security Works coalition, and the decision to give the young women the mic was made by the two coalition members that happened to be on stage at the time. Sanders deferred to them, as he should have.
