In some of his sharpest language yet attacking President Trump, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders accused the Republican president of being racist and sexist and much more during a speech before Al Sharpton's National Action Network.

“It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we have a president today who is a racist, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, who is a xenophobe, and who is a religious bigot. I wish I did not have to say that. But that is the damn truth,” the independent senator from Vermont said on Friday.

can't add much to all of that. Except to say I don't particularly think this is the narrative that's going to put the Dems in the WH. American's knew Trump was a racist....etc...etc....etc when they elected him. They didn't care. Trying to "out Trump Trump" isn't going to work.

Yeah, I tend to agree with that. Democrats won't win by concentrating on exposing Trump's faults either. Clinton tried that strategy. Trump voters don't care about his faults.
well that, plus Trump only benefits from a down in the gutter election. The dirtier the better. He wins if he can make his opponent as unpopular as he is. It's the only way he'll win.

Like calling the American people "Deplorable" ? Let's see. I believe it was " Trump supporters are a basket of Deplorables." OH,Yeah. He didn't say that. Now Sanders? A socialist meeting with an egregious conman like Sharpton? I see the humor now.

that video is from 2016 and it's heavily edited. Trump was seen as a icon for rappers back in the day. His name even appears in rap lyrics. That is until he ran for president....

Citing everything from his dismissal of the "Black Lives Matter" movement, his advocacy for stop-and-frisk policing policies, his comments following the deadly 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, to his ongoing battle against NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem to protest racism, plus a host of other controversial comments on race and racism in America, hip-hop artists have railed against Trump in both lyrics and public appearances.

you just made the exact point I was trying to make. It didn't work last time. And it won't work this time around either.
