Seems like Bernie and Hillary felt the sting of Trump’s words last night. Their bitter bites back are hardly enough for a real fight. But entertaining enough to see. Check them out.
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders tag-teamed Donald Trump on Twitter tonight as the Republican gave his seminal convention speech.
‘ “I’m with you*” ‘ Clinton said, mimicking him. ‘*Not included: women, African Americans, LGBT people, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants…’
Sanders said, ‘Looks like Ted Cruz was right about one thing. Trump does not understand what the Constitution is about. ‘
Making an evening of the event, the Democratic presidential candidate sent out a photo himself watching Trump on the television screen and tweeting from his tablet that was tagged ‘#RNCwithBernie.’
Sanders last week acknowledged Clinton as the presumptive Democratic nominee and said at a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, that he intended to vote for her in November.
He shed his taxpayer-funded security detail the same day though he never formally ended his bid for the White House.
Some Sanders supporters are refusing to follow his lead and have declared that they will never vote for Clinton in the general election.
Trump’s tried appealing to those disaffected Democrats based on their shared interest in upsetting the political system. Sanders and his supporters have sternly told him it will not work.
‘Those who voted for me will not support Trump who has made bigotry and divisiveness the cornerstone of his campaign,’ Sanders said as he began his rebuttal to the Republican National Convention.
Tonight Trump waged war on Clinton, telling a giddy crowd eager for an opportunity to shout her down: ‘America is far less safe – and the world is far less stable – than when Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy.’
As if on cue, the crowd began shouting what has this week become the GOP battle cry, ‘Lock her up!’ Lock her up!’
‘Let’s defeat her in November,’ Trump said. ‘I am certain it is a decision he truly regrets.’
