Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump, as the Vermont senator called him a “pathological liar” and the former US first lady accused him of being “bigoted.” Both of them accused the Republican candidate of inciting violence.
The Democratic candidates were speaking at the CNN Ohio Democratic town hall. Both of them talked about their plans to stop the real estate businessman in his march to the White House.
Clinton said foreign leaders were asking her if they could endorse her so that Trump could be stopped. “I believe that I will have an opportunity to really focus in on how dangerous a Donald Trump presidency would be for our standing, for our safety, for the peace of the world,” she said. “I think we can be successful in doing that.”
The best way to beat Trump was by exposing him, Sanders said as he reminded that the GOP candidate could be exposed at many levels. “This is a guy who is a billionaire but doesn’t think we should raise the minimum wage above $7.25/hour,” he said. “This is the guy who believes in defiance of all science that climate change is a hoax.”
During the acceptance speech of his first Oscar, Leonardo DiCaprio sent a message on climate change. He asked people to support leaders who do not speak for the big polluters, the big corporations, but who speak for billions underprivileged people, who’d be most affected by climate change.
“The American people are not going to elect a president who is insulting Mexicans, Muslims, women, veterans; insulting virtually everybody who is not quite like Donald Trump,” Sander said. “Thank god, most people are not quite like Donald Trump.”
Johnny Depp, the renowned Hollywood actor who recently played Trump in an online mockumentary, called the real estate mogul a “brat.” “There’s something created about him in the sense of bullydom,” CBS Local quoted him as saying.
