Post-Debate Hubris? Bernie Sanders Tells Anderson Cooper He'd Call Trump a 'Racist' to His Face

Democrat — or Socialist — candidates for president in 2020 would never say anything to disagree with a dishonest media that has a very clear goal…remove President Donald Trump from office. That was one of the biggest takeaways from the second night of the NBC/MSNBC/Telemundo hosted debates.

Candidates are so in agreement with the bought-and-paid-for media that they’ll literally say anything about their opposition, all in an effort to get more screen time leading up to the primaries. It's all part of "the game," I suppose.

After the debate on Thursday evening, “democratic” socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) was asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper if he was “prepared” to call Trump a “racist to his face.”

“Absolutely,” Sanders immediately responded, as if a dog whistle was being blown somewhere in the distance. “”Look, it gives me, honestly, no pleasure to that. I have conservative friends who are certainly not racist. You know, we can disagree in this country.”

Not if your name is Trump, apparently.

“If you look at Trump’s life,” Sanders continued, “just remember, he led the birther movement trying to delegitimize the presidency of Barack Obama. His attacks on immigrants is racist. His attacks on Muslim community is racist. So yes, sad to say we have a bigot in the White House, and that’s exactly what I would say to him.”

To be honest, Sanders most likely would actually call Trump a "racist" in person. He’d probably say that into a camera while Trump stood beside him on a stage, while not actually looking him in the face, but he’d probably say it all the same.

Watch below for Sanders’ answer:
