No one asked him for his hot take, but President Donald Trump has one on the state of the Democratic presidential primary anyway, wielding an updated version of one his trademark belligerent nicknames in the process. According to him, the final showdown in the race to be chosen to take him on will come down to former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
‘Looks to me like it’s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!’
It’s funny that Trump should call Biden sleepy and creepy and deride Sanders as crazy. Biden has faced criticism for invading women’s personal spaces, and while inappropriate to many, that behavior has not reached the level of the obvious malicious intent underlying the numerous sexual harassment and assault claims that Trump has faced during his time in the public eye. On top of that — Trump is the one who’s at times devoted a majority of his scheduled work days to free-form “executive time” in which he’s often to be found in front of a television, angrily tweeting about what he’s seeing. In other words, Trump is definitely the creepy and sleepy one here – not that you’d hope for a president of the United States to be engaging in grade school level cyberbullying in the first place.
On top of that — Sanders definitely isn’t the one who’s been documented to have lied thousands and thousands of times in the last couple years or so alone. That’s Trump — and some of his wide-ranging lies have re-emerged dozens of times, but we’re supposed to take Sanders as the “crazy” one?
Trump has consistently struggled in polls pitting him against each of the men in a hypothetical general election match-up, making his latest freak-out have a real clear origin. RealClearPolitics has him an average of 7.3 percent behind Biden and 3.4 percent behind Sanders at present. There are, to be sure, plenty of other potential Democratic contenders out there, including Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of Indiana rounding out the latest top five.
