Donald Trump woos Bernie Sanders’ voters, trashes endorsement of Hillary Clinton

by S.A. Miller - The Washington Time  |  published on July 12, 2016

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made the case Tuesday that he — not likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton — should inherit supporters from far-left candidate Sen. Bernard Sanders.

As Mr. Sanders effectively ended his run for the Democratic nomination and delivered a long-delayed endorsement of Mrs. Clinton, the Trump campaign blasted out a series of emails detailing Mr. Sanders‘ previous attacks on Mrs. Clinton.

The issues highlighted by the Trump campaign were all key to the grassroots movement inspired by Mr. Sanders. They included jabs at Mrs. Clinton’s ties to Wall Street, support for trade deals, interventionist foreign policy that led to war in Iraq and Libya, and inconsistent positions on raising the minimum wage and backing gay rights.

    The joke is on Bernie’s supporters and it is Hillary who is laughing. I wish I could wipe that smirk off of her face once and for all.

  • Jose

    It was either support hrc or face a permanent demise for sanders. Hope his supporters know this.

  • Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon

    I am a Bernist but in concience I cannot vote for Hillary or Trump. I will vote for the Green Party’s Jill Stein.

  • PatrickHenry

    Hard to imagine Bernie, with all his disgust with the Establishment, Big Money, & Hillary herself, now endorsing her. Shows just how little representation we have.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    well sanders supporters ain’t to smart anyways , they think they were going to get free college , because they don’t realize , they would be paying for it threw higher taxes, free always sounds good, but it’s never really free

    18-21 will bring big surprises all of which may not be good.

  • whoisshe?

    Elaine and Bobnstuff – this is exactly why we need Bernie Supporters to cross over they are lost with History- they have no idea about Hillary and Bernies past we welcome them, no more common core -yes to Culture and History-

  • whoisshe?

    I stand with Trump-

  • justinwachin

    Sanders supporters will have to choose from Hillary, Donald or one of the fringe candidates in November. Hillary was totally opposite from Bernie Sanders on a variety of issues. Electing Hillary president will open the door to eight years of crony capitalism, corruption, incompetence and pay to play. Hillary is probably the best politician in modern times at selling government access for personal profit.

    Hillary is for sale to the highest bidder. I have problems understanding how Sanders supporters would be able to vote for her.

    The thing that Sanders’ supporters haven’t figured out yet is that they will be left’s slave labor that provides free stuff to the next generation. I know they’ve been misled, but good grief, it’s not that hard to understand!

      Most of the programs that are government give a ways were created by the republicans and go to republicans. The Obama Phone was created by Bush and should be called the Bush Phone. There are more republicans getting government money the democrats and it’s the republicans that are trying to keep the money in the hand of the rich and give the working man the least they can.

      • Elaine

        Not so fast, bobnstuff. You can quit blaming Bush any time now. Below are a couple of excerpts from this article:

        ” …. the origin of the Obama Phone program goes all the way back to 1934. During President Franklin Roosevelt’s first administration, Congress created the Federal Communications Commission and promised “to make
        available, so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, a rapid, efficient, Nation-wide, and world-wide wire and radio communication service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges.” Today’s Lifeline Assistance program is funded through a Universal Service Fund that evolved from that concept.

        ” …any number of Presidents could claim credit for it, but the program is usually called the Obama Phone because it expanded so rapidly during his administration.”

        And, I’d be interested to see your statistics on your claim that there are more Republicans getting government money than Democrats.

        Also, do you actually think Hillary Clinton gives a crap about “the working man”?? She IS the “hand of the rich”, and every move she and those just like her make are orchestrated with their own personal wealth first and foremost.

      • KayO

        That’s nuts. The Obama Phone was actually created as a lifeline assistance program long before Bush was even born. It wasn’t designed as a “free stuff” program. You’re a flat out liar.

        • bobnstuff
          • KayO

            That’s because there are no pay phones anywhere anymore. Have you noticed that? They’re supposed to be for emergencies, and the land line version began with FDR. Unfortunately, the thieves took several and sold the ones they didn’t need. We have an ungrateful bunch of thieves and thugs now. Don’t try to change the truth to further your cause-you can’t win that way.

          • bobnstuff

            Have you ever seen one of these phones, they are worth about what the use pays for them. 250 minutes per month. A very basic phone. This is not something that you would pay real money for. You can get a better one for $10 per months.

          • KayO

            Do you know how cheap meth is?

          • bobnstuff

            At street level meth is $100 per gram. A meth head might make that last a week but they could go though it in a day if they are a heavy user. The phone is worth $10 and they will only send one phone per address. A drug dealer would laugh at someone trying to trade a Obama phone for drugs. Do you know just how much it costs to be a addict? There are a lot of myths out there.

          • KayO

            Stop being stupid, Bob. The phone is worth more than $10 to a terrorist, isn’t it? Do you know how many phones some people got? Do you honestly believe that an addict thinks things through before they sell anything for drugs? It’s all about the next fix-they don’t set up an IRA for future drug purchases. Grow up.

          • bobnstuff

            Terrorist buy their phones at 7-11. Have you ever seen a Obama phone, do you know how to get one? They don’t stand on street corners handing them out. They also are only good for one year and then you have to re-apply. I will bet I have more knowledge about these things then most people. Junkies are not all homeless or people living in the projects. You might be surprised who uses drugs and who is an addict. People can go for years addicted without anyone even knowing about it, they don’t wear signs telling you. Even those that hit bottom can fool you. If you want to see junkies go to the returns desk at any big box retail store. If they have a free phone it will be the last thing to go because they need it to get their drugs. Over the years I have helped a number of people get straight.

          • KayO

            You’re an idiot, Bob. Go to detox and get back with me when your head is clear. Stop being a eunuch. I don’t need you to lecture me on the homeless and people with drug addictions. You’re actually arrogant enough to believe that others haven’t experienced the problems with this nation. How incredibly daft of you.

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry but since you believe meth is cheap and terrorist would buy a piece of junk phone I figured you must be clueless. You seem to believe every myth put out by the right wing media. Here is my question for you. Would taking the little help the poor get from the government fix anything? Should we punish people for being poor or unlucky. Should we not help people because every now or then someone games the system. Should we let them die and decrease the surplus population?

          • KayO

            Sorry, Bob. I haven’t read the whole of any of your comments in awhile. You’re the only one who doesn’t know how indoctrinated you are. Gotta go-there’s life out there. Type to the screen all you want, though. You seem to enjoy impressing yourself.

          • bobnstuff

            I live in the real world not the one the media has created. You like your myths and keep them in your heart, I feel sorry for you. I have first hand knowledge of things like the free phones, food stamp and many other programs for the poor. I go to prime sources. You believe what you want but I know the real world.

          • KayO

            Enough with your lies, bob. Clearly,you’ve never worked in a homeless shelter, food program for the homeless or even bothered to go under the bridges to see how these people live and both to ask why. Your “prime sources” aren’t sources. Plenty of people benefit from the freebies on a short-term basis, and that’s the purpose for which they are intended. You can’t deny the fact that more people abuse these programs as a lifestyle. If you deny that, then your sources are coming from your own head. Grow up.

          • bobnstuff

            Most of the so called welfare go to the working poor, the elderly and children. Our servicemen and ex-servicemen get a lot of food stamps. The PX’s are one of the largest receivers of food stamps. Yes I have gone under those bridges and been to the homeless shelters, in fact I gave jobs to those people. I have feed the poor and worked with the needy to get aid from the government. I have helped fill out the forms for medical aid. food stamps, free phones and SSI. I bet you have never even been to a shelter or halfway house. I also helped set up three hotlines and worked them. I have been active in my local party and have been elected ward chairman in the Republican party. I’m sorry but I have been there and done that.

          • KayO

            I got through the first part of your first sentence, and you already lied again. I guess you can’t help yourself. I’m going to help myself by shutting you down. Type to the screen.

            The world the media created is your world Bob. The far left lying media to be exact.

          • studi30

            WOW bobnstuff you believe an article from the far left politico website? I’m shocked I tell you, shocked. By the way the wealthiest man in the world is Bill Gates worth $90 billion. He pays 15% taxes, has offshore accounts and has outsourced Microsoft products to China over a decade ago. He also gives millions to the Dim party and is a personal friend of Obamas. Warren Buffett is number two and a Dim. Steve Zuckerberg is number three and a Dim. Care to change your post?

  • Mary

    Democratic voters, I do not think you would be sorry to rethink your voting selection in November, like hundreds of voters have already done

  • bobnstuff

    Clinton and Sanders are both left, one more then the other but both are on the left. In their campaign the stayed away form name calling and stayed pretty much on issues so their coming together isn’t a big surprise. Trump is dreaming if he believes Sanders followers will vote for him. Sanders followers are young, educated people unlike Trumps old white uneducated folk. The Sanders people will stay home before they go for Trump.


      There have already been polls showing Sanders supporters will not support Hillary and some 35% will go for Trump. You need to catch up with what they are saying.

      • bobnstuff
        These are the numbers before Bernie came out in support of Clinton. Sanders will do his best to get his followers to go for Clinton. Even if Clinton only gets 75% of Sanders voters can Trump get 75% of Cruz supporters? Hillary got 35% move votes in the primary then Trump did. Clinton got democrats votes two to on over Sanders so if Trump puts 25% of Sanders voters he gets 8% of the democrats votes. She has her party behind her, not running from her. She also comes in with a advantage because of the system and how the electoral college works. As much as the media is trying to make the race seem close Clinton has the upper hand and it will be very unlikely that Trump can overcome it. Sorry but that’s how the numbers work out.

        • studi30

          WOW again. You are using the very media you are attacking for your examples. The Washington Post is another far left media whore.

      • bobnstuff

        My education was in schools run by the republicans.

        • 1947goldenjet

          For that to have happened you must be closer to my age, although you don’t state whether your experience was good, bad, or indifferent. I tend to subscribe more closely to your numbers, but it is early yet. Most polls thus far indicate only those who are party affiliated. Most voters tend to identify as unenrolled (independent if you will). And it is still very early in the process. Hell there is still time for the GOP to roll out George HW Bush for President
