Trump Calls Bernie Sanders a ‘Maniac’

Donald Trump, who has already attacked most of his Republican presidential rivals, is turning his sights on one of the contenders for the Democratic nomination.

The Associated Press reported that the New York businessman called Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders a “maniac” and a “socialist-slash-communist” following Wednesday night’s Democratic candidates’ debate. Trump made the comment during a speech to a crowd of supporters in Richmond, Va.

He claimed that Hillary Clinton, the front-running Democrat, “has got to give everything away because this maniac that was standing on her right is giving everything away, so she’s following.” Trump then cautioned: “We have to be careful.”

The billionaire expressed disappointment that Sanders and the three other Democrats opposing Clinton did not criticize her more forcefully. “There was no attack,” he lamented.

The Hill noted that earlier on Wednesday, the Trump campaign debuted a web advertisement blasting Sanders. The spot shows ISIS militants while a moderator warns: “The world is a dangerous place. We need a tough, strong leader.” Then, during a shot of Sanders dealing unsuccessfully with Black Lives Matter activists at a rally, the moderator says: “And it’s not this guy.”

Some political pundits suggest that Trump is attacking Sanders because of the senator’s success on the campaign trail. Though he continues to trail Clinton in national polls, Sanders is threatening to win the first two caucus and primary contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.
