Bernie Sanders Schools Chuck Todd On Why He Is Nothing Like Donald Trump

It took Bernie Sanders roughly 25 seconds to school Chuck Todd on why he is nothing like Donald Trump.


When Meet The Press’s Chuck Todd brought up the media’s favorite lazy comparison between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the Democratic candidate explained why he is nothing like Trump.

Sanders said, “Here’s the difference. I am not a billionaire. My family doesn’t have a whole lot of people. We are raising our campaign contributions from 350,000 people who are contributing on average Chuck, $31.20 apiece. That’s our response to out to working class people, to go out to the middle-class people and gain support. I think that’s a little bit different approach than Donald Trump’s.”

The comparison to Donald Trump is an insult to what Bernie Sanders is accomplishing. The media loves Donald Trump because he understands how to produce entertaining television. Trump is running a made for TV campaign.

Trump isn’t drawing tens of thousands of people to his events, and the people who are supporting Trump have little in common with those who are supporting Sanders.

Sen. Sanders is a public servant with decades of experience in fighting for ordinary Americans. Sanders proposes real legislation and policy. Donald Trump has done none of these things. Republicans are flocking to Donald Trump because he has perfected the Fox News style of hype and empty bluster.

Bernie Sanders isn’t succeeding because of publicity and hype. Sanders is drawing the big crowds because of his authenticity and message. Chuck Todd was clever in that he tried to compare the two campaigns based on the kinds of supporters that they are drawing, but there really is no comparison.

Donald Trump is a television creation born out of a combination of reality TV and Fox News. Bernie Sanders is a real deal candidate who has been building his grassroots support outside of the media spotlight for years.

Trump’s success is the culmination of years of Republican purges of intellect from their party, whereas the success of Sanders is a clear indication of the leftward movement of the Democrats.

Bernie Sanders has nothing in common with Donald Trump, as the Democratic candidate made crystal clear to Chuck Todd.
