Bernie Sanders Called Donald Trump a ‘Pathological Liar’

No shocker here, but Bernie Sanders is not Donald Trump’s biggest fan. Some politicians have been trying to balance voicing their disapproval of the new president-elect with respecting the office, but Bernie Sanders was a little less subtle.

We wonder if Donald Trump felt that Bern.

“What do you do when you have a president-elect, soon to be president, who—and I say this not happily but I think most people who observe him would agree—is a pathological liar, who changes his mind every single day,” Sanders said in an interview with MSNBC. Many would not disagree. So far, Trump has seemingly changed or softened his positions on immigration, prosecuting Hillary Clinton, relations with South Korea and more.

Sanders also discussed his shifting perspective as he watches the country change with Donald Trump’s election. Even though he himself has been serving in congress for over a decade, he said “real change in this country, I am more and more convinced of it, is not going to come from Capitol Hill. It’s got to come from grassroots America.”

This Monday, he will be on MSNBC again to host a town-hall where he wants to hear people’s rationale for voting for Donald Trump. “I want the truth,” he said. A lot of Americans probably do too. Apparently, Sanders doesn’t have to remain a candidate for people to keep feelin’ the Bern.
