President Trump had several great moments tonight during his Fox News town hall in Scranton, PA. But a hilarious moment for Trump was when Fox News host Bret Bair asked him who he’d rather run against in the general election, Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden?
“I’ll tell ya,” Trump began, “I was all set for Bernie, cuz I thought it was gonna happen. Ya know, we get ready for things, right? So, mentally, I’m all set for Bernie. Communist—I had everything down—he’s a communist. I was all set.” The audience can be heard laughing as they clap for his response. He immediately moved on to Joe Biden, “And then we had this crazy thing that happened, right? on Tuesday, which he thought was Thursday.” More laughter can be heard from the crowd. “But he also said 150 million people were killed by guns, and he was running for the United States Senate. Support me for the United States Senate. There’s something going on there,” he added as the crowd roared with laughter.
As a bonus, Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as a “very mean lady” who hit “Mini-Mike” and made him “choke” during the debates.
“So, now I’m ready for Bernie, and then all of a sudden, I went to the first lady, who people love,” the crowd clapped enthusiastically to show their love for Melania, saying, “And I said, he [Biden] just won Texas.” Trump told Bair that in a certain way, Bernie would be tougher because he has a base, adding, “it’s a much smaller base,” as he reminded the audience, who was cheering loudly by now, about the size of his massive rallies.
Trump ended by saying he thinks it’s going to be tough for Bernie “to come back.”
